two variations on the same poem and principle

People

People, we come from out of the mud
Made by our nature, our sweat and our blood
Wanting to work for the common good.

Together we stand, divided we fall
People, we hear our history call
For justice and freedom, a fair life for all.

For Capital exploits, and Power tells lies
The poor are ground down while the rich pass them by
People, support us, and Occupy.

Occupy the Churches
Though we are many, we are one body, because we all share in one bread

People, we come from out of God’s mud
Made by our nature, our sweat and our blood
Wanting to work for the common good.

Together we stand and divided we fall
People, your sisters and brothers call
For the love of Jesus, justice for all.

For Capital exploits us, and Church tells us lies
We are being ground down, and the rich pass us by
People, support us, and Occupy.
