one millon more

its maddened dash to the top
grab the cash
grab the gold
grab the chariot quick
witnessing this rat race
is really quite the trick

its written on the walls
i can see it in your face

some are too busy shopping
and living from car to chair
no one can hear the sirens
for the cigs, soda, snacks, and fear
I pray! awaken from this trance
and embrace the life we're destined for!

her babies are grabbing at her dress
her stomach tightens into a fist
the night is fast approaching
the home is nowhere to be found
the bell keeps on tolling
yet this nation doesn't hear a sound

its written on the walls
i can see it in your face

the animals are disappearing
clean air, water, food, and time
our mommas are delivering poison
while the zeitgeist relax in the sun
better a camel in the eye of a needle
And life in obedience to the One

its written on the wall
I can see it in your face

your heart wants to take that leap
but you feel trapped and weighted down
act now freinds and greet your neighbor
solidarity is now the chore
why not join the few and lead through the narrow gate?
Of rightesouness and sacrifice, compassion y amor

and what if all it took
were one million more?

I agree the world needs to change nice job showing that~jj

Poetry is not a turning loose of emotion, but an escape from emotion.

T. S. Eliot (1888-1965) American-English poet and playwright.
