On The Eve of World War III

The evidence is there, it’s plain to see
We’re teetering on the precipice of World War Three
Just take a moment or two to pause and think
And you will see we’re dangling over the brink
You will see we’re clinging to the thinnest thread
And we won’t be satisfied until everyone’s dead
Until corpses are ground into the ground by jackboots
How in Hell did we ever stray so far from our roots?
What of love, acceptance, decency and respect?
Shouldn’t those be the values of the ones we elect?
When did we change the dialogue and let hate grow stronger?
When did we hand the reins over to the War Monger?
When right is left and right is wrong
I ask, why can’t we all get along?
