Rolling the Stones



Throwing the stones
rolling the dice
going for
the jackpot
the corporate man
Mr. Big
is on a roll
everything
everyone
must be owned

Who will stop
the neo-cons
the con men
the mobsters
Daddy War-bucks
that run
the show?

I'm always looking
for clues
and ways to
figure out
what's going on
open to most
anything
learned not to be
surprised anymore

We need new
ideas
thinking
and organizing

got to have
fertile
inquisitive mind
it's a survival
skill
comes from
hard times
lessons
learned
and mistakes
repeated

Only hope
is to remain
united
Mr. Big's
knee-breaker crew
the thugs
are ready to
bust us up

Ask the Indians
on the rez
how it goes
they know the story
well

The people
were meant
to love
and share
the consumer
society
tells us
'every dog
for himself'

It's so sad
they even
teach us to
dehumanize
ourselves
and we buy
their shit
'we are just
dogs'

mental
decolonization
is the door
to the light side
