I Blame This On The A B C

Of late in my mind i feel confused and i blame this on the A B C
From listening to people on radio who seem far more clever than me
People known and admired by many some of them with uni degrees
The famous of the early twenty first century who command high appearance fees

Politicians and successful people who think their opinions cannot be wrong
Their waffling keeps jumbling my thinking i must not be mentally strong
They feel their own opinions only matter though someone's loss becomes their gain
One wonders how their inflated egos find the room to fit into their brain

Each time i turn on news radio demonization of poor people i hear
By people who need power in a bad way who broadcast their message of fear
Of poor homeless and stateless people asylum seekers and refugees
Who risk their lives for a better life in unsafe boats on the deep seas

Perhaps listening to the A B C is something i should give away
The opinions of judgemental people i hear too much of every day
I have grown tired of so called honorable people who in their opinions seem small
By their very words it is obvious they do not believe on a fair go for all.
