Paloma – Radical


 
 
 
 
i’m told to be reasonable
“think of the economy”
when entire forests are fragmented
to give a temporary job
for a feller-buncher

we’re told that we’re radicals
for opposing multinational
thieves of the tattered remains
of the Creator

while the forest DIS-service
sells off the land to the highest bidder
to be raped, pillaged and shorn
they call us “radicals!”

but radical is from the roots
where Wolverine meets riffraff
Goshawk swoops to protect her home
we can do no less

crooked politicians try to steal our voice
invalidating pen and ink
that shouts
“PROTECT THE LAND!”

laws are nothing but paper
changed upon a whim
controlled by corporate dollars
extracting, poisoning and murdering
until there’s nothing left

but radical is from the roots
where Wolverine meets riffraff
Goshawk swoops to protect her home
we can do no less.
