WEIGHT OF THE WORLD–WHO CARES?
It’s hot, I’m bothered and irritable
And long for cooler air…
The weight of the world seems pent-up inside,
And who, besides God really cares?
I know by faith in Heaven
I ‘ll have with my loved ones a home…
Before I get there
I gotta beware
Of lashing out at someone.
The wife would be an easy target,
She can drive me right up a wall…
But if I take it out on her
I am no man at all.
Some idiots think an affair
Would be a whiff of fresh air…
Their good life sours
In the very hours,
Betrayal occurs in pairs.
Our glorious President
And all the money he’s spent…
From the public till
Whatever he will,
It’s all borrowed money we’ve sent.
And since he can’t be re-elected,
Executive orders rain down…
Secretly stringing up millions
While flunkies push people around.
Of course, the “Teflon Don”
Can scarcely be held to account….
With like-minded minions spread all through the works,
His position is in no doubt.
But could this possibly be,
A week’s vacation from ME…
No tempting of eyes
Or feelings disguised,
Just a chance to float and be free!
My temper is often unsettled,
And sleep schedule’s out of whack…
Too much cold coffee in the evenings
Though I’m testing more my blood sugar track.
This economy is a farce
Perpetrated by folks who don’t care…
Daily changes in stocks are parsed,
While folks are stranded mid-air.
It’s not just that this government failed them,
From the get-go they spent too much….
Siphoning off for their buddies
Whatever power they could touch.
Being re-elected emboldened
Tries for new things on the side…
The ones who still think in despair sink
At the losing of national pride.
But still there are optimists out there,
My wife says where there’s life there’s hope…
Today I’m not very hopeful
If it were cooler, ‘t would be easier to cope.
