"Poetry & Rhymes" by William Hancock


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.
