Swift and Painless

Poison in the food
Addicted to the sugar
Fire in the hearts and minds of Man
and I cannot feign ignorance
as if I don’t understand why

Toxins in the water
Infatuated with the oil
Triggers in the eyes and teeth of owls
and I wouldn’t know where to begin
telling you how to lay down these burdens

Pollution in the air
Smitten by a fever
Cancer in the way we’re acting
and I’ll never promise to play pretend
when all the war hawks beg forgiveness
