The Root of All Evil

The root of all evil is not money.
It is not anger.
Nor is it greed.
The root of all evil has a far greater seed.
It is the manufactured fear which has led us to believe,
safety and security have now taken leave.
Living in fear is how life must be.

Magnified, manipulated, and used to control
by forces who aren’t working for the good of the whole.
Insidious creatures that lurk through the night,
greatly afraid of the loving light,
as it will melt the illusion that might is right.

They rule by fear,
with elaborate smoke and mirrors
and take great cheer
in saying. ‘Love isn’t here.
Here, there is just fear!’

Oh, the unaware they do think it’s so,
and do fall prey to more government controls.
For the creatures that rule the night,
enjoy making fear their only plight.
For within the darkness fear can grab hold,
and play with the minds of men we’ve been told.

A tangled web of deceit,
synthetic lies which are really cheap,
done in an attempt to hide the truth really deep.
But no matter what they do.
The truth will always ring true.
For the root of all this evil is absolutely clear.
It is built upon the fallacy,
that on Mother Earth we must live in fear.
