7 Murdered (And How Many More?)

Written by Walter Beck

Street preachers
This is the fruit of your labor,
Of sermons & signs
Full of lies & slander.
Congressmen & governors
This is where you’re taking our country
With your legislation & trials,
Full of discrimination & denial.
This is the place you’ve created
With your apathy & cowardice,
Full of death & destruction.

Land of life & liberty,
This is your 21st Century
