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.
