In God we trust

Son of man, how come these days you do not call me? Anyway, I have been thinking seriously about our last discussion.  I have to admit that the lady deserves commendation. I wonder how after the way She was treated and is still being treated, She is still holding Her head up. I heard Her cry as I went to bed the other night and it was gut wrenching. I have thus decided to write a simple citizen’s note to my people to look into it.

 Please consider my appeal and spread the word to other citizens to protect this lady. Despite Her wealth, She is in constant poverty and it is sad to see other people feeding of Her wealth. I wonder why nobody protects Her. I love Her so much I wrote this poem in Her honor. If only you will allow it to be read in Her honor soon.

I pray for her

You prey on her

You are bold to defend your cause of looting

I am bold to defend the cause of freedom

 You take away my rights

In gentle tones you convince me to oppress myself

The rumblings and rants of a cash crazed elite

Who dwell on the dollar frequency to trod

Ever so sure confuse me

You prey on her

I pray for her

In the pulpit you stand

Calling for a tenth though I do not work

Tell that to the vultures

I forget you are one

Cloaked in a book written by my forebears

Stolen and given to you by my would be oppressors

You prey on me. Vulture!


I pray for Her so you stop preying on Her

I pray for true humility for you

I pray for you to cherish, uphold

Honesty with Absolute Fearlessness

I pray for you to rise up and resist

Smooth tongues are persuasive
