What's with All the Hype?
In a land of forgotten dreams
among shards of broken hearts
you'll find a little Mexican child
all in little parts
In a land of debt and war
among millions of broken wheels
you'll find a puppy with bleeding paws
still following at its master's heels
In a land of freedom and liberty
among piles of little white pills
you'll find a Chinese businessman hanging
for the toy that tries to kill.
In a land where water runs red
among used bandages and broken casts
you'll find the little drummer boy
playing for the innocence that never lasts.
Just a poem I wrote about some of the news I've heard.
