Wall Street Siege

Starving sheep in a grassy field
To food for thought we did not yield
We see the truth in all we read
Yet wither up like a shallow seed

Hiding in cardboard during the storm
A simple acknowledgement becomes our norm
Waves of injustice crash down our dreams
Fallen are hopes by Wall Street schemes

Refuse their falsehoods and promised placation
While politicians in aisles offer them supplication
Twenty percent of our bread has been torched
Through greed and lies the land is scorched

No more pseudo promises of false moral hopes
No more programs to bind us like ropes
Cannibalized the masses? Eating to your fill?
"You are now under siege!" We call to the Bastille
