History Ablaze

Did you remember to thank your Capitalist overlords today?

In our fancy fairytales
the evil always lose;
It makes me really wonder
if these authors read the news.

Bad men tend to trample us
and then rewrite the books,
speaking much of liberty,
as pyrates hang from hooks.

So read those books, the glory tales
of how we’ve won the wars;
how close we came to losing out
on feudalistic chores.

Remember as you read them,
they are chronicles of you.
Someday, somewhere, someone’s kid
will study what you do.

Your input does not matter,
the evil ones will win,
but promise me you will at least
regret that you gave in.
