some people

Such a pure ambition, disguised as common greed

You only keep your word to the mouths you have to feed

But what of those who have no say

In how this world is run 

To them the only message is the bullet or the gun 


For those who hold the power 

This place feels very dear 

Their roads are lined with smiling men

Full of mirth and cheer 


Those who are but kept in place

Beneath the heavy fat above 

Find some things a little harder

Like hope and life and love 


It is for them I feel for now

It is for them I speak 

It is them to whom this place will fall

To the hungry and the meek
