False Economics Assures Repression

False Economics Assures Repression

Government is worried about the economy
Recession again the mediated fear again
Ecosphere destroyed for the pursuit of money
Growth they see as the only progress to obtain
Over inflated egos drive all to profit
‘tis the only god that they worship now here
False gains of the economists prophet
Lives wasted to a down turn that they fear
Aggregated worth no longer a true social life
Hedonism of the rich the only goal to achieve
Economics drives all and the economy to strife
Repression of the truth as our leaders deceive
Totalitarian now is the Liberty of the wealthiest few
Yesterdays’ dream of democracy sold to them too

Government is worried about the future economy
Reawakening of the masses their only real fear
Economics the control used by the worlds ruling hegemony
Global dominion their aimed for future now here
Over exploiting the environment is not their concern
‘tis the only source of any of their wealth
False profits of industry destroy and they do not learn
Life can only be sustained by the ecology in health
Ahead only the domination of the corporate greed
Hegemony given to those that control the media
Education cut and soon the wealthiest the only to read
Repression of the masses the new order of paranoia
Truth now given over to the propaganda of the media hypnotist
Yesterdays’ freedoms eroded now rewritten lost in the mist.

Artist's Description

Old familiar theme. I have writen similar before.
People working longer for less, if lucky to be in work; education cuts leave University available only to the rich. 20% of all plant and animal species at immediate risk of extinction. Poverty. Starvation.
Another Summit will fix that I am sure…AAAARRRRGGGGHHHHHH
