    Just a first verse+... haven't written anything in awhile.

    Writhing from darkness we spark less fire
    than miring ourselves in this stark mess, why're
    we basting our woes with the faces of foes
    abraded, berated by those also abated by fate's throes?
    We worry and whine, journey through time
    after thoughts spurned from my mind's tall speech
    by the grime guttering the suits of wall street.
    Coin of the land: imaginary.
    The system's unsanitary
    and it's damaging our humanity.
    Capitalist and Christian,
    Jefferson, Jesus, we didn't listen.
    Our guns glisten at the children in prison
    and brother is blood solely, no longer one another.

    When pockets have space for change
    we've hoarded.
    When stomachs have prayed for grace,
    we've hoarded.
    And, though it's safe to say we've hoarded
    without fear of being deported,
    jailed or slain, I have to say: we've hoarded.
