Stocks Up by Veronica Thornton


Stock prices are going up but apparently not far enough

think it’s hard now it hasn’t even gotten rough

the investments are locked up collecting interests

you better exercise good common sense

pay attention to what they fail to mention

history repeats itself

it’s evident check your books collecting dust on the shelf

this country was politically founded by revolutions

designed to break free from an unfair monarchy

according to how they tell it in history

some Europeans weren’t being treated fairly

so they rioted and birthed infamous revolutionary parties

thieves then became immigrants freely

so when will we be allowed to revolt for people like me

and stop persecuting them constantly

you wonder how we can be so resilient

thinking your plan was so brilliant

still saying one day we shall overcome

ok you reworded a few laws but you only fooled some

the psychological warfare has been exposed

no longer can you tell us just anything I suppose

seeds were planted by the ones who could understand

planting soldiers were part of the plan

sometimes they may get a little out of hand

but we gotta keep fighting to correct what’s wrong

until they start doing us right

then more will realize they have a dog in this fight

just look at the math

they divide us from the rest

multiply their assets

subtract the man from the equation

add their stocks up and that’s only part of the situation

so much is invested in keeping most hating those like us

that they would lose dividends if it all came to an end

which is why so many pretend not to see the indifference

others are worried one day we’ll just take our independence

and you wonder why the tactics are getting bolder

history tends to repeat itself until corrected

if you look at history you can clearly identify

who will be effected predominantly

so when you’re the stock that’s constantly going up

at some point you have to ask what’s going to be enough

start collecting interest on their arrogance

while striving for independence

because history has proven we are truly resilient.

About the Author

Veronica Thornton a.k.a. Vee was always gifted with the art of verbal and written communication although she was never a big talker yet quite the observer and listener.

Vee currently resides in Cleveland, Ohio is a survivor of domestic violence and mother of two. In her youth she wrote notes to herself and others when she could not verbalize what she was feeling. Many thought her writings to be poetic and inspiring in nature. Her empathetic feelings caused her to keep writing later in life as a way to release all the emotions and questions that were presented to her that otherwise remained nonverbal. While most of her writings remained private it was during her educational pursuits Vee was strongly encouraged to pursue a writing career due to her versatility in topics, styles and ability to articulate her thoughts in a clear, creative yet relatable manner.
