They felt the pressure building
inside their giant heads.
They ignored all the warnings
-all the writing on the wall.
They watched the tube they believed the hype
-the lies the propoganda.
They swam in the pool of ignorance
-washed up on the shore of denial.
They passed on their dysfunctions
to their children to their friends.
They drank poison by the gallon
-smoked anything that burned.
They ate anything that tasted good
-threw out all the rest.
They packed firearms in their pockets
-shot them just for fun.
They condemned anyone who disagreed
-jailed those they feared most.
They killed for revenge
-in the name of God.
For oil, for money,
for power and for land.
They couldn't see Christ's footprints
beside them in the sand.
They shot men up into space
-into orbit around the Earth.
They worshipped pagan idols
-felt no pain when giving birth.
They chopped down all the forests
-made pianos and baseball bats.
They destroyed the ozone layer
-got sunburned in seconds flat.
They exercised infrequently
-got fat, and lazy too.
They built castles out of sand
-mistook lies for what was true.
They burned gasoline to drive around
-to get from place to place.
They all ate cheese, well, after all
-they were only in a rat race.
