More of the Same

And that's what I'm here today
To talk to all of you about
I'm relieved to be able to say
Love has been cultured out
And dreams -- by definition unrealistic -- 
We like to catch these things before they begin
While there are still some hopelessly idealistic
We're fond of pointing out they never win
Though they cost society a lot
With their various derangements
With their belief in what is not
Trying to force arrangements
To accommodate this rot
On society as a whole
Luckily they are so few
It's a completely futile goal
There's nothing they can do
Against the majority
And it certainly seems 
They don't realize our priority
Is not love or ideals or dreams
But to get what we want
While playing the game
And that the prize in this hunt
Is more of the same
It has nothing to do with heart
Eliminate feeling and avoid pain
Eliminate all that from the start
That's what's sane
No one can touch us then
And catching these things before they begin
Gives us an edge on what we want   when
What we want -- WHAT WE WANT -- is to WIN !
