Sanity’s defeat is now complete
A lunatic now governs us by tweet
It now is de rigueur to heed each bleat
Coming from this loony’s toilet seat
And while he sits and dumps his shit
Our earth is burning bit by bit
Our water has become unfit
As fellow madmen ignore it
Are we insane? We need to ask
Have we drained the kool aid flask?
Our executioner sits unmasked
Still our necks bare to his task
Our train of thought has jumped the tracks
There are no truths nor any facts
The wall is up against our backs
The reaper smiles and hones his ax
Why don’t we scream, stand up and yell
Eight, then nine, loud tolls the bell
Ten, eleven, clangs its knell
Midnight nears – all is not well
Can’t we see our per’lous plight?
We must stand, kick, scream and fight
We must rage against this night
We must disinfect this blight
Children as yet born will they
See a starry sky in may?
See the dawning of a day
Not if we all shy away
Not if we stay mute and blind
Nor if we’re by fear confined
Not if we are all resigned
Or, have we all just lost our minds?
P. Fucking S.
David Koch of Koch Industries, one of the worst polluters of the planet, died Friday, August 23rd. Good.
