Treasure Island

As Far As Truth And Reality Goes


What is it that they are protesting now?

'They are protesting against the affects,
Of their treasured entitlements...
They protested to keep protected.'

What they are doing makes absolutely no sense.
NOW they protest against what offends them?
It seems to me they are touched with a bit of insanity.

'It's best to ignore them.'

Why?

'They are the same people who fought for the right,
For their sons and daughters to create havoc...
Wherever they go day and night.
With a doing of their best obscenities.'

But...
Didn't they once protest to 'get' these entitlements?

'Didn't you hear me say,
It is best to ignore them and walk away?
Everytime they come face to face with reality,
They either attempt to change it...
Or deny its existence.
And that is what we are now witnessing.'

Oh.
I didn't hear the walk away part.

'Try it.
But as far as truth and reality goes?
You will still confront those same folks,
Who will find some excuse to oppose it.'
