A Simple Plea

This hypocrisy we call democracy Is a lie you see to make you think you're free. Authority, conformity, See the lie for it's enormity. Play by the rules and live as fools Just docile tools of this society Ruled by greed and kept in poverty. The willing victims of wage slavery Are yearning for a life of luxury And find contentment an impossibility On an endless treadmill of futility Exhausting all of their vitality. But there is a path to tranquility Found when living in simplicity Seek to find your sovereignty By withdrawing from the insanity. Participation means that you agree To live in economic fealty. So lose the car and the foul TV Stop buying things that you don't really need End the stroking of your vanity And demand a halt to inequality. We all descend from the same family tree Let's create a world for you and me.
