Like Pawns

Like Pawns

They have the police on their side
They own the banks
And have the politicians in their pockets
They control the judges
And have the blessings of the priest
And we are nothing but pawns on a chess board

We are small yet potent
We can strip the knights of their knighthood
We can destroy their indomitable castles
And expose the hypocrisy of the bishops
We can kill the king
And exile the queen
If we can only rise up like ants

    True talk. I like it. Only wished the verses have equal lines.
