Wake Up

Are the laws

Of a civilized society

Used to ensure the equity, fairness,

The protection of rights and freedoms

For all human beings,

Or are they abused

To the detriment of the many

For the advantage of the few,

The many used as tools

And those who understand,

Pull back the curtains,

Expose the folly,

Are painted as fools

Shunned, shot and locked

Away.
