Give Them Bread and Circuses

"Give them bread and circuses and they will never revolt." Juvenal

Give them bread

Give them circuses

Then they won't revolt 

In your purposes

Give them their games

Give them their sports

Give them their pleasure

Give them resorts

Give them their concerts 

And all of their shows

It will distract them 

From all their woes


Give them freebies

Give them some crumbs 

Blur their clear vision

Make them go numb

Numb their lives 

From all of their pains

Then they won't notice

They are bound by chains
