Nightmare before my eyes

Good morning to you there,

but get ready for another nightmare.

 

The coffee is good, the news likely bad,

every time I turn on the tube, see incompetence so sad.

 

I've reached my saturation point on that shit.

I refuse to watch, I've fricking had it.

 

With the idiotic hogging the headlines,

I've finally decided to avoid it like a landmine

 

that'll blow off my sanity, and insult my intelligence,

a long-overdue self-protection move, in a sense.

 

******

 

The above is just how I wish it to be

I'm just deluding myself, I can't help but see.

 

A television's on somewhere in the abode,

to depress me, anger me, and my confidence erode.

 

So, raise a cup of coffee in a cynical toast,

I'll get to see ignorance personified, magnified, an idiot boast,

 

like an eight grade bully dropout stuck in reverse,

it's unbearable to watch, this Hercules's curse.
