At an All-Time Low

Violent offenders on the streets Who can afford the price of meat Culture wars are boiling over Screams and shouts, and moreover Teachers quitting in record numbers Police and soldiers too, torn asunder Trust in institutions at an all-time low Kamala’s failed us; so has Joe With most Americans wearing a frown You’d think they wouldn’t double down On the measures that put us in this awful hole Seems they just don’t care ~ about us poor souls
