Whose country, this? I do not know,
no longer seems The People’s though.
Just united diorama
the Free Market brings in for show.

The Socialists must think us fools,
and Communists were used as tools
to whip up fears into a frenzy.
Air raid drills held in public schools

Watching retrograde in stages,
disparity in our wages,
schools failing for generations,
more profit found in steel cages.

Who will be there to sound the bell?
When shut in every prison cell,
those who were not represented.
Checks and balances shot to hell.

Conflicts in ideology,
convenient to exploit, you see.
Diversion from the clash of class
cannon fodder like you and me.
