freedom wrapped in lies

two rooks taken
lies, greed and evil
fear and ignorance
the board was set
the bankers, rulers decreed
and their minions
in high places
thrust us
into an unending
quest for war
the monopoly of
death memorialized indefinitely
pawns conditioned
to live in perpetual fear
and only the king could save us
but if you want to be safe
you can’t be free
the patriotic call
blinds, and binds you
years later the stage
characters may appear different
but the game is the same
it was bullshit then
and it’s bullshit now
I no longer buy the line
or, play the game
