If Only . . .

If your politicians didn't woffle

And your media didn't lie,

It seems entirely possible

Your country wouldn't die.


If certain corporations were not trying

To drug the people into stupor

Enough of us might stay bright enough

To build a better future.


If government was trying honestly

To work for all the people,

Things might run more happily

And less bedevilled by upheaval.


Sorry to get political

I avoid it when I can

But the whip hand over government

Isn't held by honest men.
