We’d Better Learn

( – promoted by buhdydharma )

I read a story one day that caused me to think

That the history I knew was wrong.

The stuff that I learned made my heart sink

That my government would hurt us so long.

I read another story, then more and more,

Things started falling in place.

I owe my soul to the company store

Seemed to fit our national disgrace.

The CIA, the MIC, and the powerful banks

They all seem to own our politicians.

They steal our money and build more tanks

While we sit back and give them permission.

The wars we have fought, the people we’ve killed

The history I knew was untrue.

I learned that the rich while we foot the bill

Only use us as if we were fools.

It goes back to the time when this country was founded

The first war we herald as great.

When the rich had the poor fight for Indian ground

The rich won and opened the gate.

I try to tell people, they think that I’m nuts

They nod or they call me CT.

I tell them I’ve read alot and alot

But they can’t let their minds be that free.

I will keep reading because that’s what I do.

I don’t bowl or golf or watch TV.

I’ll learn what I can and pass it along.

To those that think like me.

Information is key, the more that we know

Will open our minds to the past

From what I have learned, the lessons it shows

This chance might be our last.
