The Lyrics

I first heard this OS at the first concert I ever attended. It was in Pasadena and the year was 1966.
I was sixteen years old when I heard this song
I'm sixty-eight now, yes, I've been here quite long
Time sure has flown
Things I see sometimes here make me frown
Things I witness with chagrin
Things are troubled in this land

Once I thought we would have peace in the world
But now I know that we're fated just to fight
Though I know that is not right
Things I see sometimes here bring me down
Leaders twist us like the wind
As they bumble with no plan

I knew that Donald Trump was a crook
Now watch as things turn out that way
Acts like he shoud wear a crown
Seems to me that's obscene, he's a sick clown
All the shit he puts us in
he just won't accept real facts
It blows, we know he won't atone
Realize just why I despise this guy
Should be dismissed

Makes me grieve as I see just where we're bound

Guess I touched a Trumpette in a way that they felt was "yucky". Thanks for the 1's, they warm my little heart..

Typical political drivel that's bringing the site down. Neither funny nor imaginative.

Bella - wasn't trying to be funny. Sometimes I used this site to express opinions, sometimes I use it to express frustration or anger, particularly with regards to political situations. As far as being imaginative, perhaps not, since I'm writing about how I see things from my point-of-view, i.e., I'm troubled by the direction Trump is taking us, find his understanding of and reaction to issues wrong-headed, divisive, reckless, and ultimately harmful and potentially dangerous. You clearly don't agree and that's your right, too. As far as bringing down the site with politically aimed pieces I will say that I have considered that and agree that this site has been damaged because of it, but I also recall that there were lot's of very pointed political works posted here back in the last decade, many of which raised the ire of those who disagreed, often vehemently. and yet the viewer counts were regularly 500-600+ for most regular author's. I don't see why politically-oriented POV pieces shouldn't be posted. In the past they often inspired lively and interesting dialogues in the comment section.
