Shadow figures

Men in shadows are in place

Standing behind the heads of states

Men of money we don’t see

They’re invisible you see

They exist in society

But in places blind to you and me

They control everything

For the determine the flow of money

Money being more powerful than God

In this world where everything is odd

Division and intolerance and hatred

Promoted more throughout the global states

You think leaders have the power

Do you believe they’re in control

They are just front women and men, they are puppets

To the shadowy mystery men

Who weild power through financials

Through using money to threaten and blackmail

They decide if wars are fought

And what environmental answers should be sought

They still believe in nuclear and dirty fuel

They are not interested in renewables

Wars are waged for the arms trade

The biggest corporation today

That’s why there will never be an America gun free

The men are monsters they live in the dark

You’ll never see them on the streets or in the park

They are outside this worlds illusory

And are in fact the brutal reality

Hiding in their ivory towers

Covering and embracing all their powers

They sit laughing at us all

Because they deign us as ll as fools

But when you start awakening

The the illusions they start breaking

Then you’ll see the truth too

That these shadowy men are the ones making the rules

And nobody elected them.

  1. I love this poem, it’s brave and true and needs to be heard and believed. I’m still surprised at how many sheep are asleep, I wonder how long it can stay this way without a major revolt. Thanks for posting your perceptions.

  2. Excellent

    Here is a short Bill Hicks gem for you.

    I have this feeling man, ’cause you know, it’s just a handful of people who run everything, you know … that’s true, it’s provable. It’s not … I’m not a fucking conspiracy nut, it’s provable.

    A handful, a very small elite, run and own these corporations, which include the mainstream media.

    “I have this feeling that whoever is elected president, like Clinton was, no matter what you promise on the campaign trail – blah, blah, blah – when you win, you go into this smoke-filled room with the twelve industrialist capitalist scum-fucks who got you in there.

    And you’re in this smoky room, and this little film screen comes down … and a big guy with a cigar goes, “Roll the film.”

    And it’s a shot of the Kennedy assassination from an angle you’ve never seen before … that looks suspiciously like it’s from the grassy knoll.

    And then the screen goes up and the lights come up, and they go to the new president,

    “Any questions?”

    “Er, just what my agenda is.”

    “First we bomb Baghdad.”

    “You got it …”

    – Bill Hicks
