It’s the end of the world as we know it
And I’m feeling nothing is fine
Since slipping down stairs on the slime of your tears
As we stumble toward one more crime
With our pulses and tempers increasing
‘Til the drumbeats are all we can hear
With the pounding of chests just a signal at best
For there’s plenty out there now to fear
Do we dare raise an eyebrow to challenge?
Would majority views still prevail?
Those whose protesting shocks in the ballot boom box
Were a message: Society? Fail!
Is there hope for our woeful tomorrows?
Can we ever recover the cost?
Now we’re set on a course to an ending of force
May we mourn what it is that we’ve lost?

She set out to state
Though her marriage of late
Seemed as though it had hit on a rock
There were plenty more things
Still in scope of her dreams
So divorce needn’t come as a shock
Thus her offspring she sat
Minding this friend, or that
While she sought a new father-faced fib
Stepping out with a crew
Of the less well-to-do
Who could all see the cut of her jib
But no fellow she met
Could enchant her own set
So she one-by-one cast them aside
For intent in pursuit
Of less forbidding fruit
She, convinced the world must take her side
Simply would not see sense
When it came to pounds, pence
The result too important to count
To escape from her woes
Ignored any who chose
To point out how her theory panned out

A quiet desperation
I see within your eyes
Lit without frustration
Scream volumes with your sighs.
Things haven’t gone your way love
That’s plain enough to see.
I know just how you feel, as life
Has done the same to me.
