Against the Politician 

By Damien Knight 
Getting rich off others misery

Slay the poor and feed your greed

You spare no pity for common man

And I would spare you no sympathy


Delighting in human suffering

You feed on others worth

I see it in your eyes, no remorse

For the darkness you bring


You claim to be our freedom

But you’re rope is our binds

You placate the people 

With half truths and colourful lies


But I see through your game

The people won’t stand by

And watch rights strip away

In this generation we demand change


We strip off your words

And deny your bigotry

We will be our own freedom

We will rise from poverty
