People Over Politics, World Over Wealth!

Black Pearl Descending ~ Philip Brent


They know they are outnumbered ninety-nine to one.
We, the larger number, say that nothing can be done.
Is it something in the water, or perhaps in our food?
Whatever it proves to be, it must be something good.

Good for them, at least, but not for all the rest of us,
And I will tell you, they wonder why we make a fuss.
Their daily eliminations most certainly trickle down.
That’s why it stinks, but just enough for us to frown.

It’s fertilizer, can’t you see, designed to foster growth.
I think it is just a lot of shit, so just how can it be both.
They’re the same, it’s the truth, so what’s the problem?
I cannot quite express it without a big gob of phlegm.

Had a friend whose bumper sticker said Eat the Rich.
I couldn’t seem to convince myself to adopt his pitch.
They’re really rather few and either too thin or too fat.
Truly, I do not mean to slander anyone by saying that.

Thin ones are tough and stringy, hardly worth the time.
My doctors said to limit fat, yet they may taste sublime.
I am not that sick, although some may think me crazy.
It is all just too much work and quite honestly I’m lazy.

If the rich shared a tiny bit of their preposterous wealth
They could step out in public, with little need for stealth.
But, because they have the most money, guns and power
They will shit upon us till some decide to seize the hour.


Peace is Purpose, Nonviolence is Strength,

Diversity is Unity, Empathy is Empowerment 

Unite the World!
