I'm sad for our planet, I'm sad for careful thought,

I'm sad for all the people who will be the new have-nots.

 

I'm sad for the free press becoming a thing of the past,

I'm sad for an education that used to be first class

 

I'm sad for the world who used to look to us

I'm sad for our freedoms, now they'll turn to dust

 

I'm sad to think of all the what-might-have-beens

I'm sad when I think of things that will never be again

 

I'm mad when I think of the sad pathetic clown

who sits in the White House, who is dumbing us down

 

I'm mad, yes, but also sad for him, because he'll never see

what a disaster he is, just sees his feeble fantasy

 

I'm sad for the photographs of only haunted wasteland,

where our shining city on a hill used to stand.
