I posted this two years ago but it is an election year so I thought I’d bring it back.

 

We stick our fingers in our ears and pretend that we don’t hear,

all the secrets, all the lying, all the unsatisfying

answers to the questions no one’s daring to ask.

 

We dance around the issues and we tear each other down. We

want the glory, not the gory problems we don’t wanna fix.

Honesty is forgotten in our politics.

 

Why should we even bother to hold our pundits to their cause?

We don’t want to vote for a president, we want Santa Clause

to bring us lots of presents and a shiny new year.

 

We give up our rights and freedoms because we don’t want to think

about our responsibilities, we’d rather sit and drink

away our worries while we neglect our country.

 

We don’t want responsibility, we want someone else to blame

for all the darkness in our world and all our lost boys and girls

searching for the reasons why they are left alone.

 

They are dying on our streets and battered in our homes waiting

for someone to love them like they deserve. Unemployment leads

to desperation but that isn’t the problem.

 

We stick our fingers in our ears and pretend that we don’t hear,

all the secrets, all the lying, all the unsatisfying

answers to the questions no one’s daring to ask.
