What Do You Think About That, Jack?

We live in an age when so many want to be king,

They want to rule our lives and tell us what to think.

They keep the good stuff; we keep the scraps,

What do you think about that, Jack?

Saw a story about a girl, not even 17, living on the streets,

Three babies to feed.

While the government spends money on programs, we don’t need.

The rich keep the riches; we get the scraps,

What do you think about that, Jack?

Probably fake news, right, we see it 24/7,

Some say this nation has moved away from heaven.

Not long ago, in Queens, a 37 year-old-man was shot leaving the scene,

Of a crime, he didn’t commit, though he was shot in the back, guess what, he was black.

What do you think about that, Jack?

Times are not getting better; there’s no doubt about it,

Whether your 10 or 99, get on the rooftops and shout it,

Let the royals know they’re days are numbered,

They’ll be a time soon when they’re no longer unencumbered.

So many folks work 10 hour days, seven days a week,

Just to pay the rent and have something to eat,

The fat cats get fatter, and they throw us the scraps,

What do you think about that, Jack?
