The Root of the Problem

Those ancient Greeks would mock the rule that we
In ignorance now call democracy.
That all, the wise men and the fools votes cast —
Athenians would say: “This cannot last”.

Time Bomb

The time-bomb we have made must be disarmed,
Before the damned thing blows us all to Hell!
Before they wake — before they get alarmed,
The time-bomb we have made must be disarmed.
We saboteurs thought we’d escape unharmed!
But now it seems that we’ll be killed as well!
The time-bomb we have made must be disarmed,
Before the damned thing blows us all to Hell!

Dams

The seed that’s planted in the endless rows,
With irrigation sprouts, emerges, grows.
But take away the sprays that make the rain,
And witness then, the graveyard of the grain,
As each seed shrinks and withers where it lies,
As in its blasted shell the life force dies —
A desolation sown thick with the dead,
Where could have been a field of golden bread.

To plant into the ground when parched and dry —
To throw the dice, the seed of wheat, of rye,
Upon the dust — to gamble with the gods;
Or else to irrigate the tumbled sods
And watch the seedlings germinate and thrive,
So those who would destroy the dams — survive.

Google “Equity” — Equality of Outcome

Google “Equity” — Equality of Outcome

You surely must have heard of “equity”,
For it’s the latest catchcry of “The Woke”.
It’s part of Google’s mad diversity
Instructions — they are serious, no joke.
Perhaps they’ve just been snorting too much coke.
How else could they come up with such bullshit?
It really isn’t difficult to poke
Large holes in Google’s brain-washing, to wit:
Science tells us I.Q.s vary — read the lit!
You can’t make a silk purse from a sow’s ear!
If you think otherwise then you’re a twit —
You’ll get a job at Google — never fear,
For they think everyone has the same brain.
Hey Google! I suggest you search “insane”!

Rid us of this Troublesome Scientist!

He says the reef’s as healthy as can be!
Why can’t he just shut up and take the dough!
And whether he’s on land or out at sea,
He says the reef’s as healthy as can be!
Why can’t this stupid physicist agree
With us, and with our tangled tale of woe?
He says the reef’s as healthy as can be!
Why can’t he just shut up and take the dough!

Transparent Togs

The Emperor is wearing his new clothes;
They hide the naked truth, it’s plain to see.
Most everyone throughout the Empire knows,
The Emperor is wearing his new clothes.
And everywhere the stylish monarch goes,
All but the little children, they agree,
The Emperor is wearing his new clothes;
They hide the naked truth, it’s plain to see.
