The Nursery Rhyme of Life
Mother mother can’t you see,
What this smartphone is doing to me?
Daddy daddy where did you go?
Graveyard because of the tobacco
Poultry poultry why are these chickens so big?
Maybe it is because they feed them with cancer causing pills
Minister Minister what did you do to the altar boy?
Nothing, I just made him into my little toy
God Oh God why does it seem like you don’t care
Maybe it is because he is not really there
Police police, why did you draw your gun and shoot
He was black and I feared for my life, coppers moot
Doctor Doctor, why don’t you cure me and just call it a day
If I did that drug makers and I wouldn’t get a fat pay.
World o world, I am tired, why don’t you take me away
Because you still owe taxes and have them to pay.
