There is a cancer growing
All around us with lots of
Loose ends, innuendos, lies,
Being spread like cancer cells
Invading every organism that
They come in contact with.
They believe the way to get
What they want is if they tear
This nation apart with hatred,
Rage, violence, and any tool
They deem useful to get what
They have always wanted most:
Our resources, and to rid us of
The freedoms which we hold
Dear to our way of life.
Make no mistake about this:
Your needs are not on the lists
They compile, for they have been
Bought by money and corporations,
That put profit and greed before human life.
The only way to fight them is to get up
From your chairs, sofas, and tasks
And use your own power to vote.
This is the power you possess.
Use your courage, strength, and fortitude
To stand as one, united in a common purpose,
To save this great nation from greed
And power-hungry groups who seek to
Exploit those who work hard with their hands;
Who take the food from children who are poor,
And seek to shame those who must ask for help;
Who threaten often to cut funds for the old,
And make the disabled wait for years for
Their basic needs to be addressed and met.
We must stand against tyranny and
Use what we have always possessed.
We must take the power we hold
In each of our hands and vote, in order
To create a nation we can be proud of.
