When the Rich Wage War

when the rich wage war, it is the poor who die overflowing their bank accounts as they lie hiding behind niceties as they make us slaves wars made to control us, which they create and crave when will we learn that segregation is to take? not just our lives, homes and human rights are at stake but our very souls as they bury the light within greedy addiction their only means to a dead end creating the armageddon to prove true false prophets we bought into their “good book” as right and philosophic it is easier to place our sins under another’s blame accept forgiveness, as we turn inconceivably insane society claiming no responsibility for their actions defying the laws of decency in self-righteous reactions. absolution is not possible in our religious fervor we despise ourselves internally as sheep and follower. jesus might forgive our sins, and that a slim chance. will those we torture and persecute join this happy dance? nothing will become nothing and so it shall return to be that we are insignificant as human species. when the rich wage war, it is the poor who die without the poor the rich cannot feed their lie. no one is left to support their arrogant farce destroying planet earth, corruption on the march slavery, pride, taking of life (any life), lying and cheating, coveting the jones’ wife or boat or house, abusive wife beating in the name of their god that is not balanced in polarity is the way to chaos and darkness in the laws of scarcity. believing that your actions are not your own belong to a horrendous force, the cyclone thinking that you are above judgment of deeds is foolish, arrogant, capitulates and concedes to empty spaces in heart and mind for darkness to dwell within and find a breeding ground for despair and pain chained to the physical you remain. when the rich wage war, it is the poor who die without the poor, the rich cannot feed their lie.
