What do we need and do we need it now and if not now when
where’s the punctuation, was a note tacked on the sheet
no question mark, black mark for the tutor, another question, should we then shoot her?
We’re wilting under this thing that no one has a clue about,
there’ll be no cure for the poor and no cure for the rich either,
we’ll wither or we won’t
I don’t intend to give up.
Getting over it is just like going under but higher,
government that we’ve elected can’t take their
heads from out of their arses and see that
the writing’s on the wall
is beyond my ken,
but I didn’t vote for them?
someone, anyone, everyone,
