Summary

I grow so tired of the world going down the drain while our leaders fight like two-year olds.

Oddity has become the norm; and norm is now passé.

Values and beliefs once held; seem to be thrown away.

Wrong is right; and vice versa, it worries me no end;

Just how far will it go; how low will society descend?

~~~~~

The world turned upside down; in state of such decay.

Continuing on this path will cause nothing but dismay.

Drugs and crime; raging children; depression on the rise;

economy declining; politicians pretending to hear our cries.

~~~~~

Still shots are heard in the night; another child is killed;

Mother’s weeping for the life that will never be fulfilled.

Its insanity to say the least; lack of moral’s repercussion;

there has to be an answer; someone to start a discussion.

~~~~~

Bring back parent’s rights; our hands are tied right now;

to discipline our own children; the best way we knew how.

Spared the rod and spoiled the children; we have you to thank;

children learn this law; they know their parents cannot spank.

~~~~~

Vote yourselves another raise in pay; and take a cruise;

back to work well rested; so you won't have to snooze.

The rest of us just struggle on; in our silent disillusion;

while country goes to hell; till you reach some conclusion.

~~~~~

Party’s feuding doesn’t help; wake up you worthless men;

when the world collapses round you; what will you do then?

Blame others for lack of compromise; like you always do;

While we pay the price for political incompetents like you!
