La rage du peuple

Do we really want to live in a world

Where the remains of cops

Are sold in butchers shops

As dog meat

 

Where pollution is expected

And accepted as the norm

And global warming

Is dismissed by the few

To the hurt of millions

 

Do we really want to live in a world

Where corruption is rife

And acceptable

Where the rich get richer

And the poor get poorer

Is this what we want

 

Do we really want to live in a world

Where free speech is banned

And the limitation of language is enforced

By the brutal cops of smiling leaders

 

Do we really want to live in a world

Where wars are fought over religions

And worthless deserts devoid of sand

No No No No No

I do not want this world

 

I work in a butchers shop

And am getting tired

Of skinning dead cops

For canine consumption

When from my window

I can see people

Starving on the streets and eating rats

 

This is not the world that God created

We have abused his deep love

May a pestilence be brought down upon us
