Solved For A Time
Isn't it great? How you and I
Can settle our differences, win, lose, tie?
And clearly stand, side by side,
If only for a moment.
How one people can do
Just the things they want to
And put to rest their nobodies, too
In hopes to calm their torment.
The will and strength to succeed,
Why, that is all we'd ever need,
If we had that, then maybe
They'd excuse our crime.
But alas, the thoughts of many,
Did not save them a single penny,
But a world to better places, a dummy
Is but solved for a time.
In home, at work, no play is heard,
The price of growing is a new yard
Teeming with life, a young one starts
While playing in the dirt.
The cock crows, the time passes
And suddenly the yard is vanished
The house built upon it touching the sky
The feelings of the earth are hurt.
You will not find the family there,
They shook the hands, the bankers care,
A law avoided as they all glare,
And laugh at their crime,
But forfeiting their generous earnings
To care for another nobody's burning
Desire for a yard, the tables turning,
It's all just solved for a time.
