The Age of Austerity… by Fritz O’Skennick

Thousands dead and nothing’s said,
and none held to account.
Waging war upon the poor
to hide the true amount.
Our Government is so corrupt,
and so they blind your eyes.
Their slander propaganda,
just reveals their cold despise.

Fracking land in profit’s hand,
earthquakes, death and pain.
Silent slaughter, poisoned water,
all for profit’s gain.
The Corporations grasp upon
our leaders wanton greed,
nestled with the vipers,
no regard for human need.

The system’s wrong, compassions gone,
too big to comprehend.
Mass distraction put in action
hide our coming end.
Gossip, lies and juicy scandal
hide horrendous deeds.
Wars all built on lies and spin
to hide the Corporate greeds.

And what occurs are lies and slurs,
divide the nation’s trust.
And so they turn all those who earn
to poor with lies unjust.
The enemies are at the gate
or so they’d have you say.
Do away with human rights
and let us have our way.

Our foes are near and so austere,
they lead our once great land.
They ascertain financial gain
with lies and sleight of hand.
The system isn’t working,
for it’s built on lies and greed
which victimises poverty
and those in greatest need.

Silent voices, corporate choices
feed the profit beast,
soulless bankers, greedy wankers,
take from those with least.
Property and ownership,
illusions we endorse,
’cause greedy bastards from the past
had stolen land by force.

Children crying, starving, dying,
things they have to change.
Giving all until you fall
to finance profits range.
It’s time to tear the system down
to see resources sent
to everyone who need it most
and not just one percent.

Bravery in slavery,
the time to act is now,
evolution, revolution,
be the change you vow.
A stand against Austerity
is quelled by media voice.
A weak, unstable leadership
implies you have no choice.

Clarity in charity,
so fight for what is just,
bring them down and take the crown,
the power that they lust.
Hold them all accountable
and give the people voice,
it’s time to bring the Tories down
and vote the sanest choice.
