Down on my luck
Now out of a job
No end in sight
When will it stop?

Kids out of school
Time on their hands
Needing to feel
That you understand.

Not feeling great
In my MAGA hat
Wondering what happened
Why you said all that.

You don’t wear a mask
Say it’s not your style
There’s a virus out there
But you’re in denial.

People are sick
People are dying
You don’t make an effort
You’re not even trying.

Black lives do matter
Stop the looting and riots
Stop spreading hate
Be kind…. why not try it?

Stop playing golf
Start paying attention
You are the problem
The source of our tension.

It’s under your watch
What are you doing
To inspire through example
To save us from ruin?
