JWG's Grand Hodgepodge — Money Spent (a poem)

Wherein JWG will not allow himself to be stilled. He is One of Many.

100. Money Spent

Money spent
On trivial matters is not wasted
When hate is involved.

We are forced to spend
Hard-earned dollars on gaining our Freedom;
Money that could aid the sick.

I am sick of the treatment
I get from politicians and The Press —
Never mind the Clerical Rulers.

A Societal Tumor grows fast
With falsities and general malaise.
It is thought that lacking Freedoms will not hurt.

Depriving true Happiness
To good People who think and do no wrong
Is a crime deserving punishment.

Enough of this talk.
I will not allow myself to be stilled.
Actions have strong reactions.

I shall show
This World I am a Person like Themselves.
I’m One of Many.
