Occupy Poetry

Battle Cry

BY Lynette Ann Taylor

An awakened nation now sees
billionaire bankers betting on bombs and best buys
to keep us on our knees.

Reality rarely agrees-
media moguls make millions to spread lies;
an awakened nation now sees.

Passing despicable policies,
politicians’ positions are paid as a prize
to keep us on our knees.

Hatred spewing Hallelujah hypocrisies
hidden behind layers of lies
an awakened nation now sees.

No longer will we see enemies
in one another’s eyes
to keep us on our knees.

Censorship creeping closer like a disease
Powerful people pushing aside the poor they despise;
an awakened nation now sees,
to keep us on our knees.
