I don’t wanna cry no more
I wanna shout
I’m more pissed off
than I am much put out
fighting for what does not give
while sons and daughters cease to live
screw the talk
and your righteous disregard
babies runnin’ free and easy
without hope
daddies praying while they’re
clinging to their rope
but we live strong and ever free
they are them and never we
screw the talk
and the condescending scorn
fear is rising all around
and all about
people huddle closer in
push strangers out
disconnection is their answer
but worry keeps on like a cancer
screw the talk
and the words that sow discord

One thought on “Screw the Talk
