Take A Bow

 

For all of the mess, the confusion, unrest;

you’re so out of touch that you can just jest,

for all of the worry and all of the pain...

 

take a bow.

 

For all of the violence let loose on the streets,

for all of the people who can’t find their feet;

you’re safe and secure in your well-feathered nest...

 

take a bow.

 

For the ones that can’t keep up with all of the bills,

for the ones left untreated regardless of ills;

you and your like get the best that is there....

 

take a bow.

 

For the storms that are brewing, we won’t know what for

but we will be led to a nuclear war;

so you can show off your arsenal and all of your might...

 

take a bow.

 

What have you left us with, nothing but waste,

but at least you are left with no egg on your face;

the death of a planet, and the human race....

 

take a bow.
