“We need a revolution every 200 years, because all governments become stale and corrupt after 200 years.” – Ben Franklin
Democracy; this planet’s need
corrupted now by corporate greed.
America, the corporate empire,
consumed now by its own greed’s fire.
From the ashes, what will arise;
Democracy, more corporate lies?
I guess we’ll have to wait and see
what the future for the Yanks will be.
At the moment it’s the dollar rules
in that land of business fools.
Perhaps, one day, they’ll find some pride
then where will corporations hide?
I hope I’m round to see the day
democracy does have its day.
“This country, with its institutions, belongs to the people who inhabit it. Whenever they shall grow weary of the existing Government, they can exercise their constitutional right of amending it or their revolutionary right to dismember or overthrow it.” – Abraham Lincoln
