My head reels and spins, faster than the earth itself
It possesses no orbit and no continental shelf
I’m trying to comprehend what’s going on in the world
To me it’s as unfathomable as the mind of a girl.
A demagogue waits and purrs, like a cat with all of the cream
As we wonder how it’s happened, a real answer we can’t glean
While history is grabbed by it’s coat tails, so grubby
By dishonest men, the sordid and cruddy
Who tell us that cockroaches will swarm to our shores
To take away our freedom and to settle old scores
Dehumanised waste, we should chuck in the bin
Without a second thought, then collect our wages of sin.
Money still flies around, though far too high for the many
As food banks welcome more of the sick and the needy
Then we watch as a dying city sends it’s last tweet
But do nothing to help, as we find the receipts
For the bombs and the missiles, more important than beds
Oh what was I saying? I’m losing my thread
Too many have gone, but we shall remember
As we pick up the pieces of these long dying embers.
I wish you all the best and good tidings to all
I hope you stay safe, not to stumble and fall
It’s the end of another, but they’re always the same
We never seem to learn and we’ve no one else to blame.
