Just a Symptom

Mister Trump
Is the lump
That you find
In your breast

His soul
Like a mole
That looks different
From the rest

He’s that thought
In your head
You might be better
Off dead

That rasping in your lung
That strange taste on your tongue
That little twinge in your hip
That small sore on your lip

Just a sign of what’s coming
That something’s wrong with the plumbing
Of a rot deep inside
That a suntan won’t hide

He’s a symptom, that’s all
Just a small warning call
The pride before the fall
It’s okay. Build your wall.

The System Functions as Designed

(work in progress)

Just take a look around and you might find
the system functions as designed

the system functions as designed
open up your eyes and you might see that we’re all blind
the system functions as designed

The TV tells you everything but what you need to know
what to buy, what to eat, who to love or hate
what to wear and where to go
yes we have endless choices for things that we don’t need
you can’t choose not to play the game
and you’re not allowed to leave
just set aside your mind
the system functions as designed

why are we so stupid when we’ve all been to school
so easy to manipulate, so easy to be fooled
why are so many hungry while a few are wined and dined
the system functions as designed

the system functions as designed
does just what it’s supposed to do
so you shouldn’t be surprised
as far as they’re concerned y’know
everything is working fine
