War Profiteering (Dylan-Baton Rouge, LA)


The pain of men is nothing to me,
You’ll find no pity in my two emerald eyes.
I do not care if sheep wave flags and
Hunt dark skinned bastards of evolution down.

We’ll stay home on our tall gold thrones.
When the sheep return they’ll be dragging camels
With foreign riches and plundered goods
Piled high, strapped tightly to their breaking backs.

All I want is life in luxury,
Don’t show me the bill, I care not for the cost.
I’ll sleep on beds of uncut diamonds,
Sedated by the sweetness of rose-red wine.

Moving Forward (Louis Toliver Jr-Swartz, LA)

Step by step, I step     I hear the angels sing    Hope, today, they bring  Flying up with pep  I become Heaven's rep    Riding along God's wing
Moving forward can be hard     Struggling through today      Living life is not all play The fortune teller draws a card It warns that Fate has no guard     Never let pain get in your way
Flying high with my life      I am moving, so I'm living     Heart and heart, I keep giving I will one day meet my afterlife  Everyone's past contains strife       Let my future be thanksgiving
When the steps run out      I will just fly and fly and fly      I leave the past with a goodbye Up on God's wing, I won't pout  Going to heaven, I do not doubt     In hell, I was just a passerby 
Moving forward, strength will build     Letting go is the hardest part     Vitality comes from being smart Trust in those that are strong-willed Our honest actions will be fulfilled      I step, I sing to you, I fly, I depart
