We get so tangled up
in the flags
and corporate logos
they become our connection
mentally and spiritually

We lose sight of the mother
where does the water go when it rains?
why is the wind blowing harder these days?
what do I really need to live?

We have so much stuff
sold to us by the shops
that have become distribution systems
for the corporations 
that keep grinding out more plastic
and other crap
for us to buy
on our maxed out credit cards

La famiglia
the family system
is being ripped to pieces
human to human connection squashed
local cultures must be destroyed
in order for the people to submit
to corporate rule

It's the new brand of feudalism
and fascism
a toxic match for sure
but this time you get color TV
and a phone linked to NSA
by expensive military satellites
that we pay so handsomely for

I ask myself
what can I do today
to stand in resistance
to the death merchants
who kill people
and cultures
and our Mother Earth?
