There have got to be others out there
Sick of things as they are.
I’m wishing for changes like:
Rules to be rules, not rules with exceptions and loop holes,
Honesty from above to replace the wink and the nod,
Sanity to return to the teaching of our children,
Tolerance to outlast hatred,
Patience to accompany the changes needed in society,
Unions to move beyond salary and benefits,
Organizations to move beyond salary and benefits,
Referees to take back basketball and
Players to respect the referees,
Shorter seasons, fewer playoff teams, and less television time-outs
A legislative branch that will work with the executive branch
And a time where every issue,
Were not automatically partisan in affiliation,
This sociopolitical bipolar disorder has got to stop.
Wouldn’t it be nice if everyone learned to check their egos
For the good of US?
How about getting to the point
Where making a buck
Was more about honesty and hard work
Than about the latest scam or scheme?
Could we recognize that the difference between
Big Pharma, Big Tobacco, and Prop Joe
Is more about acceptance by the government
Than differences in business models,
Protect the product at all costs
I don’t know.
I miss idealism. Realism just isn’t floating my boat
Which makes me some kind of refugee
Trying to find safe harbor
From the aggression of tyranny…
I’m here, that’s what this grand experiment is about.
It’s self-evident, no?
