Please, don’t feed the animals

the world shakes to violent change
leave or remain?
bomb or refrain?
thin blue line worked for a while
burning on pyre
heathen and liar
bailing the hay
how did it come to this? you say?
drinking lattes, executions in May
concentration camp gays
grabbing pussy
killing their prey
just like that, you’re out of the game
“daddy, the lawn’s on fire!”
signs burning, flying, hell rising
“I voted to stay”
and all that fucking hatred
all that fucking violence
all that fucking murderous rage...
it just ain’t you babe
it just ain’t me babe
it just ain’t us babe.
