What Do People See

When I look around me today I wonder what do people see If they wish they were truly free If they listen to what leaders say Taxes are they content to pay And not just their own, Bitter seeds they have sown How will they vote on Election Day Will they pay for the wealthy too This they must really want to do They all seem to be so very blind They don’t even count the cost As for liars freedoms are lost And dreams are left behind
