In A World Gone Mad

When we legalize the illegal
Applaud Poly-thief-cians and Tyrants
Paint black where white existed
Then, we are in a world gone mad

When Churches become lairs
And Pastors transform to liars
All the people are in despair
Then, we are in a world gone mad

When Truth is rare to find
And good men keep silent
While evil reigns in the land
Then, we are in a world gone mad

When children exercise franchise
And we’re ashamed to be good
Proudly calling ourselves bad
Then, we are in a world gone mad

When animals swallow millions
And displace elected Officials
While we are slaughtered like cows
Then, we are in a world gone mad

When we victimize our opponents
And claim we’re fighting corruption
Passing “hate-speech bills” to hang them
Then, we are in a world gone mad

  2. Your world is the world around you so you are right in your insinuation/assertion
