NOT NEWS, JUST A POEM

A picture is worth a thousand words... this poem sparks more.
Who do you blame for this irate game that we're playing?
The intense suffering, slaying, plagued with blatant decaying.
The elite owners in charge or the ones that are paying?
Blindly obeying with people wailing and praying.

Who do you blame for the sick system that's failing?
Professing democracy with the bombs that are hailing.
Rights are dismantled with corruption prevailing?
The guise of freedom can't hide the oil that's trailing.
