WHO WILL FIGHT NOW THE YOUNG HAVE SOLD OUT?

I am 64 and loves cats, rock music, and horror fiction and poetry






Please tell me who will fight for the truth
Now that the young people have sold out?
I once believed justice could return
But I’m beginning to have my doubts.

Tell me who will fight against the leaders
Who daily lie to control the people?
Now that the young have sold out
And instead of humans now are sheeple.

The young sheeple bleat agreement
To all of the despots’s commands,
They no longer fight against tyrants
They no longer can make a stand.

Who can stand up against mind control
Now that the young are in its embrace?
Who will stop the foul potentates
From enslaving the entire human race?

Who will fight for our freedom
Now the young gladly follow commands?
Now that just like mindless computers
The young are easily programmed.

They’re programmed to think like each other
And never think or act all alone,
To never question the politicians’s lies
And not notice that freedom has flow.

THE END
