The world is changing for the worst
The computer is now in control;
The man came round with the IOUs
To cart away all of your dreams.

Unemployment is high, so very, very high
Yet prices are set to go even higher;
Television ads. plug wonder drugs
That work by sheer magic (or so it seems)!

The whole world is on your back to conform
To give up your fantasies of being a writer;
Give up your hopes, to fit into the norm
Fit right into the dreary old mainstream.

THE END
