What Happened To Humanity

They turn our wallets

Into bullets

Fashion taxes into guns

It’s a war

We’re paying for

But fighting to never happen

 

They arrest

Those who protest

And call it “national security”

We’re branded traitors

By our dictators

When we question their authority

 

They raid our banks

To build tanks

While we get nothing in return

Save the solace

Of a promise

That we’ve got the biggest bombs

 

We make it clear

Force them to hear

And our pleas are far from vague

But they ignore us

Do nothing for us

Spread war and fear like the plague

 

But we want healthcare

We want welfare

We want an end to poverty

We want freedom

Of expression

We want fairness and equality

 

 

We want a caring society

Not these endless atrocities

Yet every penny that we earn

They take from us and turn

Into tools of death and brutality

What happened to our humanity?

  1. This so true!!
    I love these lines:
    But we want healthcare
    We want welfare
    We want an end to poverty
    We want freedom
    Of expression
    We want fairness and equality
    It’s a very powerful poem! 🙂
    I hope that someday we are able to change all this!!
