Stupid, Stupid, fall down dumb.

This humanity makes me numb.

The work, the work, where has it gone?

Hey look! Our brains! Lets turn them on.

 

"Common Sense" wrote Thomas Payne.

Right to the point, Its idea so main.

Common sense is what we need.

Ignorance- The minds weed.

 

All of the gardeners, where can they be found?

But 6 feet under the ground

The past, they spoke, to our generation.

They built us this, our home, our nation.

 

They gave us ideas for a better life.

One with work, with strife.

What did we do but toss it to the side.

What can we do if not abide.

 

"Mommy, mommy! He hurt my feelings"

Lets trifle with the worlds dealings.

Get what we want, everyones happy.

My way now, make it snappy.
