AMERICA’S DOWNTRODDEN BLUES

 

Donnie’s in the White House

Tweets are all irrelevant

The men controlling the media

Fleecing the electorate

Dems are in the background

Truth is in the lost and found

 

Jeffersonian democracy

Filled with hypocrisy

Corporate lies are all kept

Tax cuts always prove inept

Human slavery here to stay

Now it’s workers who must pay

Hidden crime on the uprise

Now they’re wearing suits and ties

 

No jobs human race

Robots gonna own the place

Greed and corruption

Is their thing

Hang em by the yardarm

Make em sing

Singular thoughts do abound

Voicing segregations sound

 

Massive rumors all around

Truth is never to be found

Immigration is a bust

Crops disintegrating into dust

A fifty foot wall must be rustled

And when it’s done the public’s been hustled

 

The left is wrong

And so is the right

To follow either

Gives blinded sight

 

Cameras on the lampposts

Recording every occupant

Extremist zealots

Twisting religious documents

 

Behind the screen

And in between

Smoke screens

That will make you scream

Black snake, pipelines

Gonna make your water slime

False religious fanatics

Lying about supremacy

Corporate tax stings

Manipulate your purse strings

Spies are in your laptops

Privacy is lost and such

Political parties

Out of touch

Represent the people

Not so much

 

The end is near

Of this I fear

The song is sung

The day is done

The chords been struck

Madness run amok

In minor keys

Of this I see

When this madness dies

Is when we’ll be free

We want too much of what we don't really know what we want.

Lower corporate taxes and a territorial tax will attract trillions from abroad for investments; hirings; employee salaries; and tax revenues.

I was listening to a college radio station and Dylan's Subteranean Homesick Blues came on. About two hours later the line Donnie's in the White HousE came into my head. Dropped everything went to the laptop and just wrote. Glad all enjoyed that read.

Go back in time? I want to go forward in time, about a thousand years and see if anything of the human species remains. Will it be something out of Star Trek? Or H.G. Wells?

Back in time? Hardly. Throughout history there are periods where humans think sticking their heads in the sands and hiding from the world is advantageous. This works for a very short period of time. Then people realize they are in a downward spiral of regression rather than progression. I highly doubt it will be the H.G. Wells (no relation that I know of) version. WE will struggle with ourselves and pain will ensue but through that struggle will come progress and growth. The old adage a house divided cannot stand. The human race is very young in relation to the universes. We will make mistakes and occasionally fall back. But we will unite with compassion and humanity. Not as a world of one but as a world that respects each other and our differences through commonality.

And the way we are structured we won't last.

But we don't have to commit suicide.
