Working within a breaking society....

Worker Bees, On Your Knees
when they scream, ignore their Pleas
Paint on a smile, chug along
while fascist chants drown out our songs
Build the Wall and Suffocate
are we prescribed this drugged out State
You must be white and nice and thin
throw out the rest in rubbish bins
Women scared to speak aloud
the grabbing leaches run the crowd
Who gets ahead when all is set
Fight the WARS then kill the Vets...
cost of living off the charts
Numb Your pain and snuff your heart
I offer nothing but my Voice
the illusion was that there was Choice

Oh wow! Damn those words have a lot of feeling behind them. I want to say great job but it doesn't seem appropriate, but I will say that it was all just amazingly chosen and written. Keep up the amazing work. Perhaps a step outside might be nice, although problems it does not fix (I only said it cause I wanted to give you a new alpaca). Resteeming this cause it's awesome.

I'm always amazed how you can manage to create this perfect poetry - and also send a strong and informed message within it. There is so much sad, terrible truth in your words course - but I think as much bad as we can find out there - the good still outnumbers it and the more we can promote the good maybe the tide it will change.

Mary Mary you're so good
You definitely mustn't move to the hood
Your voice is smooth and soft
Your legs are as long as Lara Croft

@battleaxe I'm absolutely blown away!

This spoke to me the plight of that customer service personnel, who is lonely and sad on the inside, who is made to wear a plastic smile just so she get paid.

Speaks of the society of inequality that we find ourselves, filled with biased judgements and standards....favoring a particular color and shape rather than personality...

Speaks of how government use tax to control the masses....

I can just speak on and on on this cox its just so so deeep!

I still want to believe that there is a choice - if there is not - it is just too depressing ...

As I get older I tend to think a great deal deeper. This is a very deep poem commenting on our current social order. You are very clever thank you for sharing.

A very powerful poem @battleaxe. Even though dark and despairing, I felt a twinge of hope reading this:

"I offer nothing but my Voice
the illusion was that there was Choice"

At least we still have our voices. Thank you for sharing! :)

That was pretty damned dead on. "Fight the wars then kill the Vets" - WAYYYYY too much truth in that little line!

Loved it @battleaxe! The illusion of choice is constantly pushed.
We are living the dream here in 'murica, but only if we have a mortgage and two car payments. All others, straight to the rubbish bins! More chaotic volatility on the way!
