Silly Names!

 

Let’s just indulge ourselves,

and act like little boys;

you know the ones, the very type

that hate to share their toys.

You can throw an insult,

then I’ll just lob one back;

I guess that when you look at us

there’ll never be a lack.

You want to point the finger,

I’ll hit back with a name;

it’s great to be so childish

when we play a ‘grown-up’ game.

We’ll never see quite eye-to-eye,

of that you can be sure;

so we’ll amass our armies

and we’ll have ourselves a war.

The guns aren’t made of plastic,

and the bullets are not fake;

and we can press a button,

an apocalypse to make.

We are men of power

but we’re boys inside our heads,

but never mind, the game is won

once the world, it is all dead.
