Madness and Civilization

What's the difference?

Who are we to think we're so smart?

Who gave us the God (always male) who told us that?

How's it workin' out for you
thinkin' 'bout
“unalienable rights”?

Or thinkin' 'bout how
you're gonna pay your bills
when your salary's frozen
but the price of food and gasoline

Age old,
I'm told.
Believe it's time to get bold.

And take it to the streets....

no matter how crazy it looks.
