Sitting Upside Down, Jersey

Are we going to sit with this upside down situation
that covers the vibrant land with chemicals, concrete, and death?

Are we going to sit with this upside down situation
that has war machines dropping bombs on life to protect it?

Are we going to sit with this upside down situation
that deports living community members while importing deadly, destructive corporations?

Are we going to sit with this upside down situation
that privileges economic systems to the great loss of ecosystems?

Are we going to sit with this upside down situation
that has us giving more time to a dead screen than those who breathe?

Are we going to sit with this upside down situation
that gives corporations the same rights as humans?

Are we going to sit with this upside down situation
that has us eating costly globalized food instead of local Earth food?

Are we going to sit with this upside down situation
that has fossil fuel cars exercising while our bodies atrophy?

Are we going to sit with this upside down situation
that focuses our efforts on the globe, instead of stewarding the Earth?

Comrades, if we continue to sit upside down
then we are sure to fall…

¡YA BASTA!
