The Anarchy

The Anarchy

A Chapter by J. Viands

 I watch the people feed

As the corporate ladder is forever growing

Morphing in to something we never wanted to see


So feed on the new shiny things

Comfortably thinking that will never be me

Constantly denying the anarchy


If you think there is order in the streets      

You wrong I know because I’ve seen such things

I have seen the rich man fall

I have been laid off from jobs

I have known children with no homes and nothing to eat


But if you want to continue to think it is our own damn faults

Go on and continue to feed

Toil the dirt and plant the seed of the God’s that have shamed me


Don’t forget to stop and think

A mother has denied her child something to eat

A rich man has given away everything

As for me I see a revolution coming

I couldn't agree with you more! Love the way you chose to share your thoughts. It's not partisan, just people centered.
