The Common Man

The trials of the common man
He knows where his desires stand
righteousness is seldom planned
A puppet for the hidden hand

Shifting thoughts on their demand
He wishes to be shown the truth
Reads the paper and the news
Unaware, it’s what they choose

Drenched in his own happiness
indoctrinated by the best
Content with sport, beer and sex
It’s always been this way, he bets

Can’t comprend the other side
Why the people choose to fight
when the bombs and mortar fly
Not a tear had left his eye

Thinks that others want his life
they’re envious behind his eyes
If only he could see the lies
perhaps his passion would ignite

But all is lost for common men
their happy with the world their in
no need to think or care for them
They are the enemies my friend
