Don’t Believe a Word

Posted on Feb 8, 2012


We’re told by those that be
How it is
How things are, just to believe
Dig in your pockets and give

Whether it’s a government
A religious group
Or another that has anger to vent
We the normal people will always lose

‘Freedom fighters’ or terrorists
Whatever you want to call them
Only have their own interests
Not to those they claim to defend

Too long have we been sheep
Doing as we’re told
Don’t believe a word they feed
Stand firm and take a hold

Food on the table is what counts
Not their selfish needs
Family and loved ones you are bound
Not those with false beliefs

Don’t believe a word
Please don’t believe a word
Please please please
Don’t believe a word
