They Tell Us…

They tell us they can endure no more…

They tell us they are at their wit’s end…

They tell us they are lost…

They tell us they are broken…

They tell us they are barely able to survive…

What they tell us…these stories from our brethren…not from some distant sovereign nation that Washington has bombed to hell and back, but here in our own back yard…

They tell us they suffer…

And yet, the apathetic eye and soul of America turns it’s back on them.

Like the penniless soul on the street corner, asking for your spare change, we drive on.

We motor on down the road, with a sigh of relief that these suffering souls weren’t within the reach of our car window to give a dollar or two for a spell of relief.

They are sick…

They are dying…

They tell us so with unspoken words…with glances of hallow eyes looking for the tiniest bit of love.

They tell us they are grasping for sanity…as the warmongers shit on all of us.

They tell us they hope you will be strong, for they are now old and weak…hoping that you will summon the courage they handed down to you, but has now been forgotten…that you will remember and more importantly, to stand for that which they are too old and sick to stand for.

They wonder….how many more must die for the psychotic’s.

How many more innocents must be sacrificed – whether it be from Washington’s regime change shittery, or from Big Pharma’s poisons, or from Big Telecom’s heinous dump from their arse’s…they hope for something better.

They are the forgotten….they are the poisoned…they are each of us…screwed up the ass each and every day…and they wonder, as each of us do, secretly every day, within our hearts…who in the fuck is going to stand for us?
