Where Do We Go From Here?
Author: Ben Franklin


You need to think about what
you say and do,
the inner city people are destroying each other,
does that mean anything to you?

You have built a society that lives in fear,
everyday we are reminded that the end may be near.

You trust a man who thinks he is in a cowboy movie,
killing the lower class,
cant you see that this is all a farce?

Over 1Million of us packed the streets of London,
crying our pain,
but you were nowhere in site,
you had fled,

you still went ahead,
now we have to worry about more september 11th's,
but I predict more will be

Political people

Don't political figures really burn your hide sometimes... when you can see they really don't seem to care about the agenda put before them and carry on in their own directions anyway... good writing and I think any city would work with this one
