APOCALYPSE

Too long the wounds have festered
Too long they’ve been ignored
The baby and the bath water
They’ve thrown both overboard

Don’t look now but we’ve been had
We’re bankrupt if you please
And both sides know they’re guilty
After decades filled with sleaze

They haven’t fixed a thing
Yet still they talk of how they care
And one thing is for certain
They’ve made sure they have their share

The arrogance of power
That both parties have displayed
Has led us to the brink
Of this apocalypse they made
