Treasure Island

Alfred Barna


Truth Is The Light


All blood is red
All tears are clear
And all of our dead
Will not end it right here
We are pawns within some game
Bankers get rich, corporations rave
They wouldn’t stoop to know the name
Of those they send on to their grave
A hydra of many heads plagues our lands
We must find the center they are from
We must dedicate all of our many hands
To work toghether for the sake of everyone

We give our lives
Not for freedom, but a cage
An evil heart survives
Until the end of this age
We see our young
Not with hope, but with fear
Yet we bite our tongue,
And carry on through despair
We must find a way to end this game
We must stop giving power
To the madness up in the tower
We know that these men have gone insane
We are not pieces on a board, we ended kings and queens
Now we must end the elite, we have the means
Truth is the light we shine upon their name
Truth is the light we shine upon their name

All hearts must beat
All children must cry
How can we defeat
Elite who never wonder why
We race to soothe, hurt and wounded flesh
Yet, some men gain power by our grief
This is how we ended up within this mess
We gave our lives and safety up to a thief
They distract us with lies with fear
And pick our pockets and pick our familes
We must open up our eyes and lend an ear
We must end their destroying us by their degrees

We give our lives
Were two world wars not enough for their spell
An evil heart survives
Tell Pike and his ilk to go to hell
We see our young
Not with hope, but with fear
Yet we bite our tongue,
And carry on through despair
We must find a way to end this game
We must stop giving power
To the madness up in the tower
We know that these men have gone insane
We are not pieces on a board, we ended kings and queens
Now we must end the elite, we have the means
Truth is the light we shine upon their name
Truth is the light we shine upon their name

Poem of the Day

poet Robert Frost

Some say the world will end in fire,
Some say in ice.
From what I've tasted of desire
I hold with those who favor fire.
But if it had to perish twice,
