Can anyone hear me screaming?



Stretching...Silent...
Violent grew.
Oppressed inside
The violet hue
The pointed fingers
Pointing to
The Points
That Point
At what WE do

The eye a top
The pyramid
Still staring
Searching
All that's hid
The media
The tie that binds
The wolves disguised
The bleeding blind

The "ends"
That justify
The "means"
Aristocratic
Money fiends

The broken homes
The unheard cries
The way a mother
Tries
And Tries

A story told
A million times
The governMENTAL
Legal CRIMES

SCREAM
AND SCREAM
AND
SCREAM
AND
die
A mother
And a child
Cry
