don't tell me they are job creators

Do not tell me they are job creators

Sitting and watching their money

Like pit bulls

Deaf to the screams of the innocent

Web designer lawyer and bricklayer alike

At this last hour of decaying madness

Of system that doesn't listen

Machinelike deaf hollow stonelike

Tonedeaf and heartdeaf

Stubborn cold and unfeeling

Where are we heading

21st century madness time coming and coming

O descendants of hawthorne thoreau dickinson sartre marx lenin and trotsky

Come now

We can surely do better than this

Surely we can focus on common art common science common culture and common humanity

Is that not truest sophistication

O children of generation x y and z

Make z+1 the realization of one...

The realization of oneness

Now and for all time.
