SHOULD YOU BELIEVE
Should you believe we have democracy,
Should you believe Americans are free,
Should you believe Iran's our enemy,
Should you believe in Washington, D. C,
I must say you and I do not agree.
I don't believe we have democracy.
Two parties? Just a joke on you and me,
For both are owned by one plutocracy.
The thought that "we the people' hold the key
To what we think our country ought to be,
Begins to look like base insanity.
I fear it's gone the way of chastity.
It's gone the way of truth and honesty,
Or trust without which love will cease to be.
We're faced with loss of all humanity.
