Hail the AlmightyA Poem by la Abeja
A little cynicism for you.
From the day we are born
We are indebted to you
And how quickly we realize
How much we need you in our lives
So we all Hail
All Hail You the Almighty
We cannot move about this
World without your blessing
Long gone children's smiling faces
If not for your good graces
So we all Hail You
All Hail You, Almighty Dollar
Wars are not won by the strong
Nor by those most religiously devout
Wars are won
By the biggest gunned
Those who’ve bought views
Projected in living rooms
And those bought the tide of loyalty
The tide flows and ebbs
Ebbs and flows ‘til a higher bid
Almighty Dollar rules!
Those who lack are those who need
But those who have, are blessed to receive
All Hail the Almighty Dollar!
Your model servants are greedy and corrupt
While the impoverished and honest are viewed with contempt
In a world where the Almighty Dollar is still seen as god
Justice can never, no will never be found
We sacrifice our lives at your temple doors
All the while screaming, “More! More! MORE!”
But we hail you just the same
All Hail! All Hail!
All Hail the Almighty!
Hail the Almighty Dollar!
