My stomach churns
as I watch
the arrogant master
crack his whip

Once a slave owner
its hard to give up
the throne

The greed
and hunger
for dominance
is a sickness
that seeps
through the core
of the nation

Its ugly to watch
but living inside
the beast
can at times
be more than
any human
should have to

Some warn us to quiet down
they fear being associated
with those who try
to speak the truth
as best they can

Truth though
is not popular
in the corridors
of power
lined with
wood paneling
and elegant chairs
where only the
best drink
is taken
