Pool of dirt

06.jpg

Hey Mr Gangsta – so you think you’re cool?
Dissin’ every lesson that you learnt in school
Mistakin’ your gun for a useful tool
Killin’ all your brothers like a misbegotten fool

you’re a poisonous grub in a pool of dirt
looking for a host, with no thought of the hurt
you’re one of many and you all breed like fleas
we need to find a cure for this virulent disease
doctor, good doctor please give us some ease
jab us with an anti-gangsta vaccination please

Hey there Mr Racist well waddaya know
Not very much, and it’s starting to show
You’re dissatisfied and your mind’s so slow
You blame our immigrants and whine for them to go

you’re a poisonous grub in a pool of dirt
looking for a host, with no thought of the hurt
you’re one of many and you all breed like fleas
we need to find a cure for this virulent disease
doctor, good doctor please give us some ease
jab us with an anti-racist vaccination please

As for the monster who would stomp on his friends
With his size ten boots, for his own greedy ends
Making more money with each law that he bends
It’s time for him to turn around and make amends

you’re just a poisonous grub in a pool of dirt
looking for a host, with no thought of the hurt
you’re one of many and you all breed like fleas
we need to find a cure for this virulent disease
doctor, good doctor please give us some ease
jab us with an anti-greedy vaccination please

Poor Mr Foolish runs along behind
Longing for escape from his thankless grind
His vision too tunnelled to consider mankind
He votes to drag his future into decline

you’re just a poisonous grub in a pool of dirt
looking for a host, with no thought of the hurt
you’re one of many and you all breed like fleas
we need to find a cure for this virulent disease
doctor, good doctor please give us some ease
jab us with an anti-foolish vaccination please

Written for The Sandbox Writing Challenge #46 A Question of Perspective. This week Calen asks us “Whom do you look down upon?”

Thank you Calen – I wasn’t sure I wanted to do this challenge, but it turned out to be quite… exhilarating. Yup – that’s the word  🙂

    1. I’d love to, but to my shame, I’m so horrified by him that I put a paper bag over my head and scream every time anything comes up about him. I don’t keep up with what he’s doing. What is the matter with the world? It’s terrifying!

    1. Some time ago a musician with a band asked me if he could use my stuff, but it all seemed too complicated – royalties and making sure I wasn’t ripped off and all that jazz, so I turned him down. Sometimes I wish I hadn’t…

  1. Exactly right, Jane – funny but in a pointed way. Hard to be funny about some of the depressing stuff your chosen idiots say and do, but ridicule has a sharp edge and you’ve cut deep there. Loved it 🙂

    1. Thank you Lynn. I’m trying to keep my anger in check, so it was the only way I could write it. I don’t want to be too serious about anything right now 🙂
      Except courgettes. We have a lot of courgettes. 🙂
      And coffee. Coffee’s a serious subject.

      1. You’ve got to try not to get too serious, but lord knows it’s not easy at the moment – so much going on in the world that’s deadly serious. Coffee is however of the utmost importance, you’re right. I know my husband would agree with you! 🙂 Personally, I feel the same about chocolate …

        1. I used to do chocolate in a big way – it’s the addict in me. I had to pretty much give it up – apart from my hot chocolate at night, but I plan to cut that out at some stage as it puts me at risk of going back to chocolate. It sounds as if I’m joking. I’m not.

          1. I’ve become worse over time I think. I used to reserve it as a weekend treat but bits have sneaked into week days too. Must keep an eye on that, but it’s just soo hard not to eat it … 🙂
