All I know

All I know is that we are sick
We're sick with fear
Sick with worry
Sick with fatigue

Sick to death.

Our children drugged
To make them manageable
Then schooled
To "just say no".

Our old people
Abandoned
Discarded
In "homes"
After being dragged
From their own.

Everyone fed
Food that's been poisoned
Mutated
Irradiated
For safety.

We're overweight
Undernourished
We're overworked
Underpaid

We're afraid
So afraid
Of each other.

We blame the weak
Defend the strong
And never think
We're all weak

Hate anyone different
But we're all different
To someone.

The answer is more family
Less peer pressure

More real food
Less fast food

More love
Less hate

More humanity
Less religion

More community
For everyone
Less segregation
For any reason

More nurturing
Less violence

Until we learn that
No amount of gasoline
Will extinguish a fire

We'll burn
And burn

You don't fight fire
With fire
More water
Less gasoline

Hold your loved ones tight
Tonight as their shield
And work for a tomorrow
Where shields are
Unnecessary
Obsolete

More strength
Less force

More strength
Less force


More strength
Less force

The cure for violence
Is not more weapons

More healing
Less sickness

I'm sick to death
With how sick we are
