occupy wall street

by Mary Frances Spencer

us 99 percenters
even those in denial

looking for
the re establishment
of the middle

the chance for
peace fulfillment
bills paid

simple requests have
virtual power

dollars gotta flow
so simple

bank fees ridiculous

tv obsolete
turn it off

listen see hear
real reality

1 percent toasting

as we walk

in the streets


Author's Note: I am very inspired by this uprising or movement of people from all walks and trades trying to protest and question what the h*** happened to our country! I hope we can all come together to find mutual peaceful solutions to share our blessings and work TOGETHER to help those in need, to find work and to go forward with POSITIVE intentions! Namaste MFS

I hope so, but I've never been an optimist. I dig all the energy of the people trying to make a difference though, and I definitely dig this piece.

Wow, love it. there is this occupy everything going on all over america right now. i wonder if it has spread to other countries yet. we can't keep bailing out the ones who have it all while we slowly decay.
