Topic: MOTHER OF EXILES / (No)VACANCY

You will either be offended or right on point with this one.  And just so you know the mother of exiles is the beautiful STATUE OF LIBERTY.   The motivation for this soon to be punk song.

"Tabula Ansata (a tablet evoking the law). Liberty holds a torch in her right hand and a tablet in her left. "

MOTHER OF EXILES
(No)VACANCY
Beamer 10/22/2019

Your huddled masses yearning to breathe free                                                                                         
SEEKING FOREVER TO CROSS TO A NEW LAND
THE TIRED, THE POOR, THE ONES WE CANT UNDERSTAND
IF YOU DON’T HAVE SKILL TO OFFER, HOW GOOD ARE YOU TO BE?                                                               

The wretched refuse of your teeming shores.
FLOATSAM AND JETSOME BOIL FROM THE SEA
WE CANT HANDEL ANY MORE
WE ARE NOT YOUR WHORE

TRANSLATE, TERMINATE, CASH THEM IN
LAND OF THE FREE, EXCEPT FOR YOU,
THIS IS OUR COUNTRY.
NO VACANCY

TRANSLATE, TERMINATE, CASH THEM IN
LAND OF THE FREE, EXCEPT FOR YOU,
THIS IS OUR COUNTRY.
NO VACANCY

CHILDREN AND FAMILIES TORN APART
SO MUCH FOR MAKING A NEW START
SPLIT THEM UP AND PUT THEM IN CAGES
WE ARE LIVING THE MIDDLE AGES

MOTHER OF EXILES YOUR BEACON NOW WANS DIM
WELCOME TO OUR SHORES NOW FORGOTTEN,
CAREER POLITICIANS SHUTTING DOORS,

TRANSLATE, TERMINATE, CASH THEM IN
LAND OF THE FREE, EXCEPT FOR YOU,
THIS IS OUR COUNTRY.
NO VACANCY

TRANSLATE, TERMINATE, CASH THEM IN
LAND OF THE FREE, EXCEPT FOR YOU,
THIS IS OUR COUNTRY.
NO VACANCY

TURN THE TIDE,
CAST OUT THE ONES PROMOTING FEAR
SEND THEM TO THE WAYSIDE
AND DO NOT VEER

TURN THE TIDE!  NO VACANCY!
TURN THE TIDE!  NO VACANCY!
TURN THE TIDE!  NO VACANCY!
TURN THE TIDE!

Its the little mistakes that become great. and when it falls in place, the feeling is  indescribable.

Re: MOTHER OF EXILES / (No)VACANCY

very well written and passionate but also quite politically motivated, so i shan't comment further     

Ask not what Chordie can do for you, but what you can do for Chordie.

Re: MOTHER OF EXILES / (No)VACANCY

yes my dear friend, i fully understand that. but the rule is; no politics and no religion, you might get away with it but i may get into trouble!

i have views on my government which i must keep to myself as Graham does very well, he just puts his thoughts on youtube, or soundcloud or somesuch. i wasn't being snippy as i said your punk/poetry is a fine piece of work and a great opening discussion on those in power in general. but i must keep out of that unless you want to email me and we'll run our respective governments down to our hearts content.     

Ask not what Chordie can do for you, but what you can do for Chordie.
