You Didn’t Sell Out, You Bought In

You didn’t sell out, you bought in
At least that’s what you regurgitate
But you, yourself, are a cog in the machine
Grinding out this state sponsored hate
You speak of crying in the streets
Heartbroken their flavor of evil didn’t win
But it’s a system of corruption throughout
With each career politician speaking the sin
Where did all our heroes & leaders go
Driven out as the bureaucracy multiplies
Buried with the truth in all that paperwork
We’re doomed unless the people rise

Against these manufactured lies

  1. “There is a time when the operation of the machine becomes so odious, makes you so sick at heart, that you can’t take part. You can’t even passively take part! And you’ve got to put your bodies upon the gears and upon the wheels, upon the levers, upon all the apparatus, and you’ve got to make it stop! And you’ve got to indicate to the people who run it, to the people who own it — that unless you’re free, the machine will be prevented from working at all!” Mario Savio

  2. Loved this. So true. I’m starting to think that maybe good people have to work thru it and hopefully bring others along with them, out of it? I dunno, just trying to see how such a big web of F-up government/power hungry human beings could somehow still bring about the very same perpetrators redemption. (and ours) Great post, thank you and I hope you have a wonderful day. 🙂

    1. Thank you. I’m glad you like it. I don’t have answers. I just know that we have to point out the wrongs being committed in the world. We get so caught up with picking sides, that we lose track of the real evils.
