    dissonance performing a spoken word piece in Manchester, NH @ the Bridge Cafe.

    July 25, 2008

    the words:

    What is this? Appalled and disgusted to the point of sickness/
    It's not my business, idlely sitting by and bearing witness/
    Atrocities continue to take place at a second hand's pace/
    I watch the politicians scurry as they hustle to save face/
    Just in case, scandal explodes/
    Nuclear waste-loads/
    Groves of trees deformed, reformed educational roads?/
    Or routes to success, I'm much less than optimistic/
    The intrinsic nature of these oligarchs have me ballistic/
    Holistic approach with humankind in mind/
    divinity doubt, your net worth is how a person's defined/
    Entwined within the system, had enough of the machine?/
    spitting out good little sheep to help increase the mean/
    and I mean it should be bothersome for you to view/
    an election process that rotten all the way through/
    Corrupted by big business with their own agenda in mind/
    Statesmen paid to spew corporate slime on the constituent's dime/
    Inclined to believe the system needs a total overhaul/
    set up camp and a sign adjacent to a pentagon wall/
    and on the sign it clearly states for all with sight to see/
    the system's fucked but change begins with you and me.

    So I take ten steps back, reflect then react/
    what a sight to behold, humanity dead and in a shit sack/
    to decay over time in most minds, retribution/
    but what's the point creating more problems with no solutions?/
    collusion between Congressmen and CEOs/
    executive orders, for EXECs, paid for through the nose/
    I suppose that's just the nature of our capitalistic beast/
    pocketing tax breaks while watching profits rise like yeast?/
    Laying off 5K, a little instant gratification/
    a month after swearing in the new trickle-down sensation/
    Placing emphasis on welfare of a whole different sort/
    Land bought for Daimler? They need our financial support?/
    Last I checked, they looked set...snatching cash hand over fist/
    Raytheon, Chase, CitiCorp...top my fuck you list/
    Pissed from your perspective, I just call it passion/
    collapse the Federal Reserve now that's a catalyst for action/
    So raise your arms and resist or link with bike locks/
    it's a modern day tea party tossing these tyrants off the dock/ Show less
