In The Mirror
I said to myself that tomorrow I will change all of the things in the world that I don’t like
I shall give peace to the Middle East, I’ll take millions over the poverty line
I’ll bore into the ground and replenish all of the fossil fuels
Why, I may even jump into the sky and fix the ozone!
Just as soon as I’ve had my cup of tea and been given another speech on how
anyone can change the world, by someone with questionable proclivities
who says we don’t need big business
We all could live without capitalistic greed, right?
Well, I know people who like Coca-Cola and have one of those big-screen Sony television sets,
but they can’t afford organic foods and the word is that the government pays their rent
Moi? I’ll leave saving the world up to someone rich that has a few more morals than many would think…
But I won’t mention any names.
