Watching the news last night,
noticed something, caused a fright.
Stories full of depraved, depressing sights,
ads for new medicines, so I will not die tonight
Told who died, was shot, or another dastardly deed.
Told I can’t breathe, my ticker’s bad, but they have what I need.
A plane’s gone missing, another new war’s begun; I must pay heed.
The side-effects of the drugs they praise, may make me puke and bleed.
Or be dizzy, die, or get really sick; I plan to wear dark glasses in coming years,
stuff great big wads of well-chewed bubble gum deep into my ears.
With luck and nose plugs, this will allay all my darkest fears;
don’t worry, there’s really nothing we can do, my dears.
Peace is Purpose, Nonviolence is Strength, Diversity is Unity, Empathy is Empowerment
