Leaves Drop Like Hours



as the hours drop away
like leaves in the wind,
we are dying each day
so this must all end,
humans make so much noise
in time the world becomes too small
many starve and die, winner take all,
take it from the earth take it from the sea
make it from the backs of those
who aren't as clever or lucky,
so the powerful tell lies
just to grease the tracks that steal
expensive suits and ties
faint unease exudes surreal
scenarios develop just to mislead
corrupt misnomers express a noxious masquerade
it's almost over the dream the lie
the placebo flags they wave
the power and death the crave,
they shall break what does not bend
as the hours drop away
like leaves in the wind,
we are dying each day
so this must all end,
