Insidious evil stalks the Market Place
Spreading so fast
It’s deceptive embrace –
Seductive and vast.
From ‘Ivory Towers to City banks
And ‘Corridors of Power’
To our Media’s corrupted face.
Alas for humanity – divided society,
Undermined solidarity –
Lost without trace.
Cry out for the thousands collaterally broken –
Give voice to the millions who never are heard.
There’s not much more time for truth to be spoken,
Let’s make a commitment to spreading this word.
