Black Flag - Obsidian Eagle

Black Flag - Obsidian Eagle

The Bald Eagle of your forefathers has come to represent
Those exploitative and treacherous oligarchs in the White House.
Stars their military might; Stripes are but bars locking society tight.

Banks act as cathedrals for Capital:
Dollar, Pound and Euro are its Eucharists.
Stock brokers and lenders? A priesthood of vendors!

So take to the streets and fly black banners high —
Remind them that Revolution is a thorn at their side >
Freedom is as good a reason as to why many have died.

This darkest of Eagles shall soar with you then
Anarchic flags its feathers upon the wind...
They would have our wills bend, but we Will focus like Zen!

remember also that 'banker' was once a euphemism for something else...and be careful of groupthink! Happy revolutionizing...(echoes Lennon in his mind)...good to see you up and writing! For some reason my Reader did not deliver your recent work until now. I really liked 'a priesthood of vendors' - classic image, nicely rendered.
