Banging my head against
The world. Because you have to
Laugh, before you cry. Even when
It threatens to kick you in
The balls or punch you in
The gut. So you have to fightback,
Take a stand for what you believe,
Not just go along with the
Conservative point of view.
Because you’re a long time dead
And it’s never too late to
Take a different tack. Breathe
And breathe again, just to make
Sure. Because like I said you’re
A long time dead to waste life
Banging heads with the world.
