Feed on Liberty

American fear
Spendable currency
To buy red meat
Bloody teeth tear
The pack feeds
While the poor starve
A wasteland
For liberty
Free to roam
The Desert
Until the devil
Temps you to
Take the leap
Of faith
“Feed on freedom
in the valley below
–All you have to do
is jump…”
We have wandered
Longer than
40 Days
We have endured
More than
40 years…
We seek
This land
You’ve promised!
