Build A Boat

Build A Boat

Murphy's Law has broken my heart
we're down and out, and ripped apart
and picking pieces up, by will
while breathing in a merciless chill

Our hands are reaching wide and far
while others are held, up to the stars
Happenings that shape our youth
try to protect the beastly truth

We're labels, labeled jars of jam
bowing down to Uncle Sam
opening up our mouths, for help
then silenced by a pharmacy shelf

We seasoned soldiers are victimized
by textbooks written for the lies
that blackmail us and keep us down
to keep the same heads with a crown
those who are different are a threat
so they'll be drugged
to pay a debt

Why not kill two birds with one stone?
whom have been proven accident prone
by strategically placing booby traps
so we can't touch the top, but lapse

Into a sea of discredited folk
where some may drown and some may choke
I will not fall! I'll build a boat
then paddle out to find you
