The patriots are stuck fooling themselves
There are no nations, only corporations
Governments who manipulate the people
The peasants are conditioned
By a state-run media, the officials are bought
With pomp and parade, you will be duped
Into thinking your Country is the best
But these borders no longer exist
The bonfires and illuminations
These Independence Day shows
Is to cover a corrupt police-state
An oligarchy where the same clans
Inherit the vote, the idea of great nations
Is the greatest myth, China and the United States
Thrive due to the control they exhibit
On their peoples, the psychological control
The creation of “terror” enemies
To perpetuate their greed, all for stars and stripes
On flags, or for expansion of a culture
That personifies all that is glamorous and fake
The presidents do not preserve our dignity
In a system that promotes an individualism
That is the buying into a mechanism of slavery
Slavery to possessions, slavery to inequality
Slavery to a false sense of superiority
If that is patriotism, I want no part in it.
Tell us what you really feel 😉
Truth and blazing words
Everyone sees how terrible it is
The stench of us rises into Heaven!
What are you going to do about it?
