Gluttonous People


We’re a gluttonous people, humanity

With our various shades of insanity,

And yet when rationing came

And things stayed the same

It fed right into our vanity.

Then nothing was done,

And with no reason to run, 

We broke into stores long since looted.

We embraced chaotic lawlessness

With joyful flawlessness

And our sense of order was muted.

Elections were canceled.

Schools were no longer in session.

And the restaurants were closed.

No liquor stores,

And nothing to do on the weekend.

Which returns us to gluttonous humanity,

With our laughable Judeo-Christianity

Sitting home with our children

Numbering north of two billion

We shout out our lives are profanity.
