HIGH HO TO THE SILVER
Elgin Subwaysurfer Bolling Street Artist
People are not dollars and cents,
How we gonna eat or pay the rent?
Corporate Gangsters they need to Repent.
Being reduced to decimal points and numbers on a page,
Only succeeds in increasing my rage
How are people gonna make ends meet
When their source of incomes been reduced to
Another number on ya spread sheet?
“Win some, Lose some”
Very easy for some of YOU to say,
When you GOT a regular nine to fiver
And a guaranteed paycheck waiting for ya
At the end of YOUR day…
Politicians taking away PUBLIC spaces
To improve “Quality of Life???”
Look with me inside the parentheses
(As long as you wearing Armani suits, got money, and a supermodel trophy wife)
“Vendors and Street Artists?” “
get ‘em ALL outta the way”
Corporations need this space!,
C’mon Boys, Let’s Play!!
High Ho to the SILVER! Cow Yippie Yo I PAID!
Herding us Vendors Away like we wuz Cattle
Contemptuous Corporate Cowboyes
Riding High in the saddle
Although they might treat us
Like we’re “burgers for lunch”
I’ve got a feeling, and it’s more then a hunch
Pretty soon they will be feeling the crunch
You can never silence the activity
Of those who possess creativity and the proclivity
To protest and debate
Let’s not stoop to their level and HATE.
Our creative ability is greater than yours
The ONLY thing YOU’VE done
Is put us on PAUSE.
