Harsh strong language
begs the question:

Didn’t we do this before?
Remember that Big Bad Wolf
across the sea?
He played Risk with armies.
I’m sure there are a couple movies about it.

So why then now,
When we are all jet-setters and point-dexters and
smart enough to know better,
is the circumstance becoming more and more despondent?

Desert lessons and forked tongues
do nothing for empty bellies and blank papers.

Land isn’t meant to be bound and quartered.

Folksongs are not going to appease any senses this time.
