You don’t feel like you’re a part of our country much lately.
Can’t you see that your people are reaching out for you,
literally begging at the feet, at the bottom of the steps for you to start
listening? Can’t you hear them chanting all around the nation?
Or is it all just noise?
Government, you don’t seem to have given us much lately,
at least nothing more than a clenched fist, a few bruises and a pair of handcuffs.
Have you forgotten who you work for?
I’ll give you a hint; it’s not for the one who can pay you better.
You are working for the ones who’s fathers worked for you, and your children to practice what they believe in. The ones who gave your daughters every right your sons have.
You are working for the ones who worked and still drip sweat in the form of non-violent movement for equality.
You are not working for the ones who can pay you better, but the ones who work harder,
the ones who worked so hard to get you in that job in the first place,
the ones who hired you to work for them.
We have paid you, and paid you well.
You’ve taken that money to threat and destroy the world with a military
of your loyal employers and workers
stronger than any military in the world, in fear of losing control.
So in fear of losing control, you’re so scared that you’ve stopped listening to all ideas of control but your own. You’d better hope you can find a way to get things back into control once they’ve spiraled into chaos, because you’re out of control
and your people, your employers and workers are out of control
the world is out of control, and you’re falling apart more and more every day.
You’ve taken all matters into your own hands,
and left our empty.
Then, you went and gave it to the ones who promised you more control…
So who’s really in control?
Government, who’s running our country now?
