Our Pyramids

They do exist...

Our Pyramids
A Poem by Colton Warr

Carefully tread forth, if only to see
That they will do anything to ensure you do not flee
Why, they would even make it seem as though you are free
Of course, that's exactly how they want it to be

Carefully tread forth, if only to hear
As time passes, the chants are becoming more clear
Isn't it funny? You are told what to fear
What choice is truly yours, you silly puppeteer

In a nation that claims equality, we sure do like to divide
Every four years we are made to choose a side
But in how many years will our children have to hide?
From a weapon that leaves everything it touches fried

And how many years will it take to reattain our democracy?
Today's higher government can be seen as an hypocrisy
Wait, what government? The establishment has formed into a bureaucracy
Perhaps an island is better suit, where one can create a theocracy

Carefully tread forth, if only to feel
The mountain of debt dumped upon us, oh what a deal
How much harder can we make it for a human being to get a meal?
Perhaps they won't be stopped until this generations children squeal

Carefully tread forth, if only to taste
Say, Is there any other Forrest or reef we can dump our waste?
Any other ethnicity that we can mistreat and erase?
The foundation of God has even been defaced

College is a program to prepare you for the machine
What cog will you be? What will be your routine?
90 percent of our news seems to be smokescreen
And let's be honest, we ignored a city whose water was unclean

So don't be free or spontaneous,
But continue to kill yourself for that scholarship
And continue to act "sane" while living in this craziness
By all means, a government doesn't need patriots

You have voiced your feelings well. Our country is not the hands on nation it once was. We still need to stand as individuals and keep our integrity. Your poem speaks a lot of truths, but the American dream is an ideal. Individually we can still try to attain these ideals. Its not easy and more roadblocks are thrown at us. It may be living through the journey, fighting to keep the dream alive as opposed to attaining the dream that will keep us alive.

Completely agree to each words of your's site, very few free birds are flying above the clouds. Strong wind only can scatter the mist, then the trapped ones will feel the light.

Such an amazing piece. Most people won't understand you because of your knowledge of what really goes on in the world. But I do, so many issues in the world and the ones that try to make a difference are sometimes the ones that hurt the most.

A single voice echoing the cries of many, well done

An amazing summary of all the things that I have not been able to put to words. Fantastic job, and I must admit that I am a sucker for good rhymes!
