Oppressors



We shall run away.
Far away, in the squalor hills we lay.
Leave us be, oh you oppressors. 
Is not the limit reached that we must pay?

You have stripped us of our homes.
Rags we do wear.
We begged for food from our beggar neighbors. 
For you have not cared.

You have forced your rules
With chest puffed with vanity. 
Taken swift action on debtors. 
turned away humanity.

Your courts have voted against us.
Slammed fists to table.
Shouted, "You all have defaulted. 
We shall take back all we gave you!"

We shall run away.
Far away, in the squalor hills we lay.
Leave us be, oh you oppressors. 
What have we left that you shall take? ©
