Television commercials do not have any effect on me,
Turn away when there’s something I don’t want to see.
I don’t possibly have enough money to send to the poor,
Would I really miss a dollar a day, now that I’m not sure.
Sad, thin dogs tied outside without food, water or a bed,
Humans who do this, deserve worse, that shouldn’t be said.
People carry guns, just because they say its their right.
What do they really need them for, just to cause a fight.
Cars are a necessity, we need to drive them everywhere,
Using gas daily - can I walk there, share a ride, do I dare.
Smoke fills the air but the factories are needed to employ,
Profits may be less but the clean air would bring such joy.
If I am unsatisfied, I’ll just sue because I could use the money,
No wait, I’m Canadian, we don’t sue, we are sweet as honey.
I’ll foster a child, adopt a dog and if in trouble call the police,
Walk to work, accept less salary and promote world peace.
