Half The People Agree... - Poem by david lessard

Half the people in this country agree,
We should be tougher on immigration;
Half the people cannot see,
Where we are going as a nation.

Some don't even care, they don't vote,
Some are much to busy to take the time;
Some people, will always 'miss the boat, '
And that, my friends, should be a crime.

If people stand by and do nothing at all,
Then evil will rear its ugly head;
If people cough up excuses and stall,
Think of the alternatives instead.

A land of willing and useless bodies,
While the others do all the work;
They sit around and drink hot toddies,
And care not about the things they shirk.

They take the handouts when they're given,
Hey, it's free, why dirty up your precious hands?
While the rest of us are proud and driven,
And we're not content, the way it stands.

Com'n you people, time's a-flying,
Feel some pride and do your part;
There's no need to pout, nor sighing,
It's not too late to change and start.
