The End

It's becoming blatantly clear my friend,
that the word will soon be coming to an end.
A celebrity haircut makes headline news.
But they downplay the persecution of the Jews.
Gay marriage still a topic of debate.
What happened to separation of Church and State?
At school it's illegal to say the word God.
At the mosque next door I hear "praise Allah!"
Blacks and whites still can't get along.
"Ebony and ivory" is just a song.
We send young men and women to war,
sometimes not even knowing what for.
All of this just makes me sad.
Our children deserve better than what we had.
