Goodbye

Goodbye By Linda Hays-Gibbs I saw you slowly walk away My heart exploding in my throat I couldn't think of what to say huddled deep inside my comfort coat of denial,it Wasn't my verdict or trial I don't understand any of this Or your goodbye kiss We rescue the dogs And throw our babies in the trash We can't see through fogs And say nothing ever lasts We peel the fat off the pig and curse the lean meat We've gotten so big We can't see our feet We throw away enough to feed the starving But we grumble over the fat turkey we 're carving Nothing is ever enough Then we are bored And start killing stuff What idiots are born in A society like this We can only wish We can only wish
