When in the course of nations...

(A prayer of sorts)

When in the course of nations
when snake and tyrant rules
when truth is kept blindfolded
true patriot’s called fools
When engines of big oil
grease the political skids
when bombers tanks and rifles
are more valuable than kids

We see the beast rise up now
the apocalyptic whore
they swing the coffers open
and on hope they slam the door
They tell us we must follow
in them solely our hope lies
but in their wake destruction
and another soldier dies

How can we crouch in silence
watch them destroy this land
rise up and stand against them
won’t you please lend a hand?
Stand up and now be counted
take back our sovereign right
help steer us off this dark path
return us to the light…
