Driving to the End of the World

Driving to the end of the world
The end times approach
Driving through the smoke filled air




North of Mt Shasta
Heart of bigfoot country
End of the world images
Fill my head with dismal

end of the world visions
the apocalypse is upon us
The wicked evil as hell

blood red sun
Leers at me with an evil grin
Screaming at me

What fools these mortals be
Global climate change
Is as real as the smoky fires

That Burn and burn and burn
As our leaders turn turn turn away
They Can’t handle the truth

They will sacrifice all life on earth
So the oil and coal barons
The so called masters of the universe
Can make their obscene profits
Sending the rest  of us to hell

Merry Christmas from your friends at AT&T

AT and T logo
AT and T logo

Sometimes I wonder
About the morality of the corporate giants
That rule our world




On the day before Christmas
AT and T received a huge Christmas gift
From the President of the United States
The biggest tax cut in U.S. History

And the President proclaimed
That it would unleash jobs jobs jobs
Apparently, ATT never got the memo

And they announced thousands of layoffs
The day before Christmas
A true PR nightmare
That could have been avoided

They could have waited two weeks
And announced their restructuring plan
After the New Years

But no they decided to show the world
Their true colors
Heartless soulless monsters

Who don’t give a damn
About their workers, their customers
Or their employees

And certainly are not Christians
Though I am sure that they think
They are doing what Jesus would

All they care about
Is feathering their own pockets

Is it any wonder
That Americans hate the big corporations
That rule us like ancient emperors?

And will they fade away
Into the dustbin of history

One can only pray
For such a Christmas miracle

It’s a Gun Situation, Mr President



Mr. President

You are wrong once again.
You said that the tragic events in Texas
And Las Vegas were not “gun situations”
But rather, were mental health problems




And that in Texas if there had been gun controls
Perhaps fewer people would have died

Mr. President
I know you a smart man,
The smartest man in the world
According to you

So please contemplate this fact:
According to the latest findings,

It is a gun situation
In fact, the reason the U.S.
Has so many gun deaths
Is because we have so many guns,

45% of the worlds guns in fact
And 33 percent of the world’s shooters
Are Americans killing other Americans

And most of them, the majority of them,
Are White People killing other people
Not murdering terrorists.

Most are in fact,
Out-of-control citizens.

So Mr. President
When will you come to your senses
And do what 90 percent of the public wants,
Enact nation wide effective gun controls?

And tell the NRA
they can take their blood money elsewhere

When, Mr. President
When will you act
When will you take charge

And become a President of the people
Instead of the President of the NRA?

When will this Madness end?

Yet again we turn on the TV
And witness horrible scenes
Of unparalleled violence, hatred, and despair




An old man consumed by his own demons
Opens fire from a hotel room
Killing 58 people injuring hundreds

In Las Vegas, Sin City
And the cry goes out throughout the land
Why yet again this tragedy?

The usual suspects are rounded up
It’s the culture, stupid, cry the conservative voices
Guns are the price of our freedom
Guns Don’t Kill People

The only solution is more guns for everyone
The only solution for a bad guy with a gun
Is a good guy with a gun

An armed society is a polite society

No, it’s the guns, cry the liberal pundits
We must confiscate the guns

Ban Assault weapons
And join the rest of the world
Where such carnage does not occur

And we sit around and argue
Knowing that there will be a next time
And another time and time and time again
Until the end of time

What is the sickness in our souls
That allows for this hatred to fester so
Deep within the minds of our killers

Nothing will change
Until we confront the evil
That lurks deep within each of us

There will be another Las Vegas
Soon enough

Families across 14 states unite in grief after Las Vegas shooting

Donald Trump, Our Great Compassionate Dear Leader


As an elderly man falls
In front of him
During a charity dinner event




Hitting his head bleeding out
Quote the MAGA Donald Trump our future dear leader

“It is disgusting. I mean the guy was bleeding
all over the nice marble floor”

Donald Trump the self-proclaimed
savior of the nation

Could not be bothered to lift a finger
“Thank God for the marines who took out the garbage

But they left a mess on the nice marble floor
And ruined their nice uniforms”

and disrupted a fine dinner

Did he call the grieving family the next day
Of course not

Quote the Great Leader, the Donald

“I forgot to call.” That is not his thing at all
And still, I wonder

How such a disgusting excuse
For a human being became
The leader of the greatest nation
On earth

And what it means for the future
Is it proof that we are doomed

That America is in the final stage
Of terminal decline?

Or will Americans take
out the garbage
From the white house?

The Time Donald Trump Turned Away in Disgust While a Man Was Bleeding to Death in Front of Him

the End
