To Comfort The Afflicted And Afflict The Comfortable

New Observercast



When leaders lie,

more concerned with their power

than they are with our lives

and deaths;

When the rich look down,

refuse to acknowledge

that it’s our labor that makes them rich,

that they owe us, not we them;

When we see the world we know

slipping back into the slime

because too many prefer fairy tales

to truth,

Let this be a call to act,

a call to resist the greed

and despair,

a call to unite

To save what’s left

and what’s right

in this country

of ours.
