Amazing Grace no longer flows,
Dammed up by greed so crude.
I once could eat, but now I find
I cant afford the food.
The bright young minds of our country
Now wake to meet their doom;
So why should we apply to school,
When close ahead lies gloom?
What will we say in years ahead
When strewn across the land
Are wretches poor in heart and soul,
By greedy robbers damned?
Made bank from others toil.
I say we have the right to fruits
We've grown on Natures soil.
Aloud, lament all ye who hope
To have a better life;
If our priorities don't change
We all will end in strife.
and doom we may waylay!
Lets make a plan while we still can
And birth a better day!
