A Lawless Land?

Are we living in a lawless land?
Claiming Law and Order, people
make first and second amendment stands.

But these are just excuses to do as they please,
carry guns, not wear masks
and in your face intentionally sneeze.

Let’s carry that to its logical conclusion —
running stop signs and red lights leading to
injury, death and mass confusion.

It is said that thirty percent of the population
will vote for anyone, for anything
in utterly childish desperation.

They are angry; they feel cheated, impenitent —
just feeling sorry for themselves.
Has anyone seen the seventy-percent?

“Ah, ah, ah, ah, stayin’ alive, stayin’ alive
Ah, ah, ah, ah, stayin’ ali-i-i-i-ive….”
