"Poetry & Rhymes" by William Hancock


“We’re Play Things For The Wicked”

"We're Play Things For The Wicked"


We’re play things for the wicked,

In this hell we call earth,

From the moment we’re born,

With their certificates of birth.


We’re collateral to a debt,

In a country we call home,

Ruled by the rich,

Where nothing is owned.


Human livestock we are,

To the wicked, just peons,

In a world so corrupt,

It’s been this way for eons.


From monarchs and dictators,

To corporations and banksters,

Plutocrats and oligarchs,

Their all a bunch of wankers.


There’s something to be said,

In pretending to be civilized,

Our freedom and liberty,

Leaving much to be criticized.


We’re deceived by their media,

And politicians puking lies,

Nothing’s as it seems,

As we begin to clear our eyes.


And now the fog has cleared,

And the darkness falls away,

We’re just play things for the wicked,

It’s always been this way.

      • No you can’t. People can dress it up, ignore it, do whatever they like but that doesn’t change what is. The corporations and the men behind the curtain are still poisonous and killing everything.

  10. This is very good. Sometimes when a topic hits me I know it needs to be said as poetry, which is here and there on both blogs. We connected quite awhile ago. Over time we find blogs we like and we follow them, but it is hard to get back to many of them unless the only thing you needed to do was blog and read. I was reading some old posts and there was one you followed which prompted me to look you up again. Glad I did.

    We’re collateral to a debt,
    In a country we call home,
    Ruled by the rich (I like this) good job.

  12. This is very good. The fact that it’s always been this way is an excellent reason to change it. The fact that we can see it and despair over it is progress.

  13. I’ve found answers to why the world is the way that it is. Now, it is up to me and you to help others learn those answers.

    What I have found is that the Oligarchy is in control of our world and has been for thousands of years. As ancient royalty, they created organized religion and promoted it as a form of psychological warfare – making it appear to be a “good” thing on the surface.

    But the truth is that it is a means to destroy the abilities of the human mind by closing it off via the ideological concepts within it. They use it to dumb-down the masses, and to better control & manipulate them.

    Religion IS harmful and dangerous in many ways and on many levels. It was created by ancient royalty as a form of psychological warfare.

    And those royals used it to keep and maintain their rule over the masses. Today, their descendants still ruler our world as “The Oligarchy” or the 1%, if you prefer.

    This is what everyone needs to know and understand. It is why the world is the way that it is. Please take the time to read what I’ve learned about this and share it with others if you will. Thank you.

    • You’ve got ‘my’ attention.. . I could go on and on with this, but nothing you don’t already see and know, you’re way ahead of me.. . and yes, I completely agree. And, I might add, religion is not spirituality, too many are misled by this. Excellent referance, ‘Understanding the Oligarchy; I read some, will return to catch the rest when I’m back online.. . “Kudos” to you.

      • Thank you William. Yes, you are right, religion is not spirituality. However, religion is not just what people are familiar with either. Some people can make a religion of different things. The real problem is what irrational thought does to the human mind by corrupting the ego. Once that happens, people are no longer natural human beings with their natural human mind. A process of mental deterioration then will begin. Organized religion was designed to do that to the human mind by setting up perimeters in which the believe HAD to think within in order to preserve that belief. They would then deliberately and subconsciously ignore or dismiss anything that contradicts that belief. In that sense, organized religion was created as a form of psychological warfare.
