BEHIND CLOSED DOORS

Decisions are made
Behind closed doors
Handshakes and winks
Can’t take any more.

The rich get richer
They scam and they lie
Over and over
We keep asking why.

But the proof is there
Right in our face
Plain and simple
A sad disgrace.

They’ll use and abuse
They’ll bully, complain
But the end result
Is more of the same.

We have to stand up
To greed and to hate
If we wait too long
It will be too late.

Can’t let them take over
We can’t let them win.
We’ve got to speak out
Again and again.
