Good Music

So, I was listening to this two-hour chill-step (soft dubstep) and in one of the mixes, a poem or prose was spoken in the background and I felt that I should share it with you. Wise words from an unlikely source.

I hope people still have time to read my poppycock. Anyway, here goes…

I am sorry
I don’t want to be an emperor
That’s not my business
I don’t want to rule or conquer  anyone
I should like to help everyone if possible
Jew, Gentile, Black man, White
We all want to help one another
Human beings are like that
They want to live by each other’s happiness
And not by each other’s misery
We don’t want to hate or despise one another
In this world there’s room for everyone
And a good heart is rich and can provide for everyone
The way of life can be free and beautiful

But we have lost the way
Greed has poisoned man’s souls
Has barricaded the world with hate
Has goose stepped us into misery and bloodshed
We have developed speed but we have shut ourselves in
Machinery that gives abundance has left us in want
Our knowledge has made us cynical
Our cleverness hurt and unkind
We think too much and feel too little

The hate of men will pass
And dictators die
And the power they took from the people will return to the people
And so long as men die, liberty will never perish.
