No real artistic value.  Just a short little rant this morning that kind of flowed from my mind as I woke up.

"Babylon USA"

These days no one has their own damn opinion
Attribute their thoughts to the media's dominion
Cardboard cutouts marchin' down through the street
To the drum of the capitalist beat:
Soulless, mindless, numb and deaf
Cuttin' down forests till their ain't none lef'
Anything they gotta do for shameless luxury
Make sure they drive a lexus or an infinity
But what about the third on this planet without food?
While you laugh and tarry they suffer and brood
Fatten your wallets and your body's overweight
Attribute "success" to some lame act of fate
The truth is you're poor and soon you shall see
There's no divine backing behind your livity
All of this great wealth that you've treasured and stored
Will sting like the whip of a frayed extention cord
As you beat your chest in great lamentation
And give way to JAH generation

Therefore, become imitators of JAH, as beloved children - Ephesians 5:1
