calling all people

The day has come, alas the time is at hand For all people on earth, in all of the lands To fight the demon of man, usury and greed Cyberspace is our garden for planting the seed We can grow this seed, to unite all the lands With a new found hope, we can take a stand Those who enslave us and care not for our health Pit man against man, while counting their wealth Their faith is in money, metals and riches of earth Creating banks and systems, to hide what their worth The plan has been the same, since Jesus walked the earth Through war after war, people still wait for his rebirth Corporate losses are shown in red ink on a page Ours, in rivers of blood, from the wars that they wage With an insatiable thirst they raped and soiled the earth They tell us "Our countries are failing", because of our girth Its time we lift their concealment, uncover the ground Making them liable, to the same laws that we're bound It's not a quick cure, for problems man faces on earth It's beginning a path, to find health, hope and mirth

This poem speaks a world of truth. Thanks for sharing your work with us. I am old and don't trust too many people. Especially our politicians and the clergy is soon to follow. Man cannot live in a cocoon, but we sure can choose as wisely as we can. Jancarl
