Sick of the Game


I woke this morning
Cloudy and dank
Flipped on the telly
And the smell was rank

The news it seems
Never really changes
Almost as if
We could be new age sages

As I poured my fair trade coffee
The bankers were set free
No penalty for their greed
Another branch falls from life’s tree

Sick of money
Sick of fame
Sick of poverty
Just more of the same
Sick of disease
Sick of destruction
Sick of pollution
Sick of the game


As I drove to my desk
I watched dirty cloud banks
Tailpipe expulsion
And who do we thank?

Past tar sand and coal plant
And chemicals of war
Spewing toxins to our genes
So just who is deformed?

And the politics of money
Trumps dollars and sense
And this precious globe
That us humans only rent

Sick of garbage
Sick of blame
Sick of lies
Just more of the same
Sick of bombs
Sick of waste
Sick of hate
Sick of the game

Dirty Politics

It’s so hard to imagine the future
The time of our children’s children
Living on planet Third World
Where the losers are always a given

And you ask why I’m angry and bitter
Because you have bought the fake-tear lies
As the uneducated are controlled
And worship is not about love in this life

So why haven’t we risen?
In protest and anger and shame
Because so many have no idea what’s happened
Watching fake tv reality games

Sick of thinking
Sick of arguing
Sick of stupid
Just more of the same
Sick of sickness
Sick of takers
Sick of politicians
Sick of the game


I want you to think for yourselves
But don’t trust any sources
Information control
Is one of their many courses

I want you to want more
For yourselves and your kids and for mine
Not money, not things, not stuff
And in anger, I want you to rise

Because WE are the power
And we’ve let it be taken
And the price that we’ve paid
Is love forsaken

Ask for love
Demand clean
Expect better
Expose their crime
Fight oppression
Take on greed
Want what’s best
We can win this time
