Woody Harrelson, known for his role in Cheers and many Hollywood blockbuster films, doesn’t see the world through the same eyes as the fickle and fake industry that made him famous. He is now speaking out about the state of the world as it really is.
Written in a poem and put together with related images, Woody Harrelson’s poem hits at the core of what the ordinary people of the world are faced with at the moment.

“I sometimes feel like an alien creature for which there is no earthly explanation
Sure I have human form walking erect with oposing digits but my mind is upside down
I feel like a run on sentence and a punctuation crazy world
And I see the world around me like a mad collective dream
An endless stream of people move likes ants on the freeway, cell phones, PC’s and digital displays
In money we trust will find happiness
Like a genetically modified, irradiated Big Mac that some how is symbolic of food
Morality is legislated, prisons over populate, religions incorporated
The profit modive is permeated all activity
We pay our government to let us park in the streets
And wars are the biggest money makers of all
We all know missile envy only comes from being small
Politicians and Prostitutes are comfortable together.
I wonder if they ever talk about the strange change in the weather
This government was founded by of and for the people,
but everybody feels it like a giant open sore,
They don’t represent us anymore.
And blaming the President for the countries woes is yelling at a puppet for the way it sings.
Who’s the man behind the curtain pulling the strings
A billion people sitting and watching TV in a room they call “Living”
But as for me, I see living is Loving.
And since there is no Loving room I sit on the grass under a tree dreaming of a way things used to be
Pre Industrial Revolution
Which of course was before the rivers and oceans and skies were polluted,
Before Parkinsons and Mad Cow and all the conveluted decaffieny of bad ideas like skyscappers and tree paper and earth rappers
like Monsanto and Dupont had there ways as they continue to today
This Pre Us
Back when the Buffalo roamed and the Indians home was the forest and God was nature and heaven was here and now
Can you imagine clean water and food and air, living in communities with animals and people who care?.
Do you dare to be responsible for every dollar you lay down?.
You gunna make the rich man richer?,
Or you gunna stand your ground?.
You say want a revolution, a communal evolution to be a part of the solution
Maybe I’ll be seeing you around…..”
