When wanted we peace,
they prepared us for war.
When we wanted clean air,
they kept on polluting.
When we wanted health care free and for all,
they said wait.
When we wanted public transportation,
they urged more cars and freeways.
When we wanted the ingredients
of factory-made-food listed on labels,
they resisted.
When we wanted lead out of gasoline
so kids could breathe free of brain damage,
they dragged their feet.

When will we want to start organizing
for control of the controllers
and power to we the people?
