please dont hang up

yes im calling because im in crisis
you know theres so much i could do for this world...
please dont hang up....
theres so much i could do for this world if they would only
understand my disabilities
if they would only provide decent housing for the disabled...
please dont hang up
if they would only understand these things...
we are the richest country in the world...
but the government is broke, you say?
gotta build more bombs still?
whats that?  you have another call?
please dont hang up
theres so much i could do this world
i could create art, act, and inspire people beyond your wildest dreams
but the governments broke, you say?
gotta keep giving those tyrants money, you know
gotta keep giving the one percent those tax breaks
they are job creators you know
even though i cant find a job
and have a resume that would knock your socks off
whats that?  you have to go?  budgets are tight and they laid off more crisis 
workers?
oh, please dont hang up...
