Abandon All Hope

 

Abandon all hope, oh, ye who expected better,

and ye who saw a national dear John letter,

 

a dear John letter to long-established norms;

nothing left to do but ride out this storm.

 

But, I have a feeling this storm will rage for years,

if it ever goes away, that's my darkest fear.

 

 

 

Have You Seen My Hopes?

 

I know I left them around here somewhere,

along with my optimistic good reason to care.

 

Please, someone call 911, I done been robbed.

I'd like to report a mugging, I've been mobbed

 

by a bunch of blindside freaks who came out of nowhere,

took the reins of power, and never, ever fight fair.

 

Now I'm just watching--one minute, I had hopes a-plenty,

the next I was clubbed, assaulted, and now I ain't got any.

 

I'll admit, officer, that I wasn't too smart, I turned my back,

let my guard down for just a sec, when they launched their attack,
