Against the Politician 

By Damien Knight 
Getting rich off others misery

Slay the poor and feed your greed

You spare no pity for common man

And I would spare you no sympathy

/

Delighting in human suffering

You feed on others worth

I see it in your eyes, no remorse

For the darkness you bring

/

You claim to be our freedom

But you’re rope is our binds

You placate the people 

With half truths and colourful lies

/

But I see through your game

The people won’t stand by

And watch rights strip away

In this generation we demand change

/

We strip off your words

And deny your bigotry

We will be our own freedom

We will rise from poverty
