We Live For The Soil

soil

We live for the soil
Over it men and women die
All for the right just to toil
While lives marked in hours pass us by

As societies simmer and boil
Fingers point and feathers fly
Bitter truths inflame, embroil
While those we chose to lead us lie

We live for the soil
Over it men and women die
All for the right just to toil
And listen to hungry children cry

A permanent state of turmoil
And a system that’s bleeding us dry
Like the world that we bleed for it’s oil
And it’s poisons we process and buy

……… We live for the soil
Over it men and women die
All for the right just to toil
With no right to ever question why
