Fight the Power

Your freedoms are eroded, iota at a time,
And then before you know it, castrati you've become.
More human rights get pilfered, with every waking day,
Unless you fight the power, to keep their paws away.

While eunuchs sing falsetto, and praise oppressive regimes,
Stupidity pandemic, numbs people to their stings,
Soon you'll possess nothing, yet happy you wont be,
For a planned commune living, works only if you are bee.

And all those lazy leaches, sponging of other's funds,
Ignore widespread corruption, as long as they get crumbs,
Yet all who are not half wits, know free rides don't exist,
A taxman always cometh, to squeeze life from someone's teats.

Most bureaucrats forgetful, that they are of the people and for,
Us commoners must remind them, the fight they'll have in store,
Our freedoms are God given, not for elites to dole out.
And every right they wish to grab, we must defend, stand stout.

Userpers are quick to punish, cut dignity and pride.
Creating pain and hardships, with glee they barely hide.
Ramroding self-serving edicts, down our collective throats,
Their modus operandi, to treat us as herds of goats.

Yet tolerance and patience of people does wear thin,
So we'll show elite bastards, they're goading wolverines.
This nation must stand united, and never bend the knee.
Morality is our weapon, stand tall for all to see.
