Insanity in a Nutshell
Drape a flag and call it a day’s work
say a few words and hop on your foot
for Jesus and his friend the holy ghost,
Uncle Sam rewards us
with a two hundred dollar grave marker
a reward they say for killing and dying.
Post Traumatic Stress they say
will get you through the day
with a gummy bear
and claws of chocolate Easter bunnies
with just a hint of Thorazine.
Innocence is today’s cartoon,
tomorrow’s loss of life.
Somebody’s god must be real
He’s gone fishing I guess,
no time today to cure our nightmares.
