pomes of buddy don: If The People Sleep

If The People Sleep

When lines are crossed in actions that should be
Non-partisan in nature and affect
The purity of justice sea to sea
Then we have fouled what took years to perfect.

When principles by party needs are trumped,
We let the promise of the USA
Be sacrificed for goals that should be dumped
Like tea was flung into the Boston Bay.

We all have heard that justice should be blind
That justice can’t be weighted toward one side
That truth alone is what the courts must find
And bias always means justice denied.

Can our ideals be trashed and made so cheap?
They can, but only if the people sleep.

Anyone who's surprised by this, I've got a bridge to sell.

I recon we are all just to afraid of losing what little grip we have on a comfortable life to step out of line and stop funding a government that does not hear our wishes. One day it will become uncomfortable enough and we will awake!
