Values '67


Pass by citizen
don't look left or right
Keep those drip dry eyes straight ahead
A tree? Chop it down- it's a danger
to lightning!
Pansies calling for water,
Let 'em die- queer bastards-
Seek comfort in the scarlet, labour
saving plastic rose
Fresh with the frangrance of Daz!
Sunday! Pray citizen;
Pray no rain will fall
On your newly polished
Four wheeled
God

Envoi

Beauty is in the eye of the beholder
Get it out with Optrex

    'Pass by citizen,
    don't look left or right',

    Keep those glassy eyed stares straight to the floor,

    A scruffy outstretched hand? Call the police - it's a danger to itself!

    Flowers calling for water,
    It'll be right, - somebody else will do it,

    You're always giving to charity,
    the one that begins at home,

    too protective of your fragrence,

    Sunday! Pray citizen;
    that your god may not see all.
