You silence the noise, from your electric clock
turn on the lights, shower and your coffee pot
Do you feel blame for what you have done
Since, the clock signaled, your day had begun
Hundreds of simple tasks, that we do everyday
No qualm of consequence, cost or whom will pay
Trying to survive, with wife and children we create
No concern of air, sea, land or errors we berate
In life's maze we seek wealth and that better life
Finding lies, debt, plague and fear, in this forest of strife
Spirit weak hopeless, afraid, when any query is raised
behind apathy and delusion hide, earth will be unfazed
Nuclear and chemical waste, contaminates all the land
The food chain was tainted, all mutations will expand
Creating wealth is more critical then all human life
knowledge kept repressed, so arrogance could thrive
People's voice was muted, for way to many years
Unanswered questions persist, we can't afford to fear
Prospects to correct mistakes to save this great land
Seems ironic to say but, "Are in the Peoples Hands".
Back to the farm to gather and tell stories of life, hope and inspiration.
