In the End

Stir up the kettle
let’s see the metal
and what it contains
alongside the stains

corruption galore
secrets, lies, and more

Stripping our lives
with their greedy knives
stealing our health
to increase their wealth

Can we ever retire?
cope with the fire?
how foul is this air?
they don’t even care

I did not choose this
and I won’t kiss
all those in power
not ever, no hour

I’ll resist till I die
I’ll scream and I’ll cry
In the end they can’t win
with their inhumane sin
