the “Parasites”

the "Parasites"

They came with their politics,

Their money, their greed,

Stealing from the poor,

On countries to feed.

.

The world, their game board,

And we, the playing pieces,

Just sacrificial pawns,

For the few, the one.

.

They hide behind bullshit,

Spread by their sycophants,

Flaunting their privilege,

This class of psychopaths.

.

Society their blood vessel,

They latch on and suck,

“The ultimate parasite,”

The people just grunt.

.

Taxes and credit,

Bailouts and more,

Kickbacks and bribes,

Economy through the floor.

.

Never is enough,

An unsatisfied hunger,

Our democracy’s decayed,

The world to their plunder.

.

Hear the war mongers?

They scream for the elite,

“Our parasites are hungry,”

From one and all, shall eat.

      • Yes, it would just be nice if what we thought meant enough to encourage change.

        • I think it does…when people join forces there is nothing we can’t do.

          One thing about gays: you can’t tell us that we can’t change the world.

          We can and have.And we can do it again.

          • Yes,agreeing on an issue and coming together as a group definitely has an impact. As you say here we have and we will continue to do so. I guess what bothers me is the feeling of helplessness when I look around at the selfishness and greed. I know we have to prioritize the issues, it just seems like there are so many. But it’s during those quiet moments of reflection that I realize doing the best I can, one person, one issue at a time is enough.

  7. p.s. I could have sworn I was follwing you but have just seen the little follow button unticked at the bottom of my kindle. I may have unticked it accidentally on a previous visit. About to rectify. My apologies.

      I’ve noticed the same thing with a few sites I was following, I had to re-follow. I think I even had to re-follow you as well not too long ago. I think it has something to do with something WordPess did here a while back with the system when they were messing with it.
