The Lyrics

This must be the most Nihilistic song I've even written, but contemplating the current state of world affair (and it sure is not going to get any better in the future), it is just being realistic.
Monday: nothing
Tuesday: nothing
Wednesday and Thursday: nothing
Friday: nothing, Saturday: nothing
Sunday is even less nothing

January ain't nothing
February ain't nothing
March and April and May nothing
June, July and August and September: nothing
Octo-, Novem-, December ain't nothing

USA: nothing,
Russia ain't nothing
Mexico and Canada ain't nothing
India and China and Europe ain't nothing
and Finland in the meantime: nothing

President: nothing
Congress: nothing
House of Representatives: nothing
States ain't nothing
Counties: nothing
Cities and trailer parks ain't nothing

Employment: nothing
Bankruptcies: nothing
Outsourcing, downsizing: nothing
Pink slips: nothing, sacking: nothing
and automatization: nothing

Democrats: nothing
Republicans: nothing
Libertarians ain't nothing
Greens ain't nothing, Communists nothing
and Flat Earth Party even nothing

You're out of work and
I am out of work but
together we just make nothing
Poverty ain't nothing, hunger ain't nothing
and homelessness ain't nothing

Alcohol: nothing
Drugs ain't nothing
Contemplating suicide: nothing
Bible ain't nothing, Marx ain't nothing
and Disney and Pixar ain't nothing

History: nothing
Future: nothing
Home and family: nothing
Praying ain't nothing, begging ain't nothing
Hope for the better: nothing

A paean to nihilism. Is nothing sacred? At least your parody is something.
