SocıAl Network - Poem by Kris Whelan (1971)

There are doctors and nurses, the truthers and the liars
Theorists and lurkers, the occasional frequent fliers
From the jihad to the Taliban and the lonely holy Joe
The I wanna be a rock star, the amateur the pro
The greenies and the lefties, all plying for your view
We got the government and cowboys, the Indians and Jew
But I got some French connections and a Spanish troubadour
A German and a trucker all peeking through my door
From Bollywood to Hollywood and a wedding in Kuwait
A baseball game in Cuba, a preacher preaching faith
I got the crazies and the ice caps, the god damn BBC
I get to watch this shit all day, oh and reality TV
Politicians spouting lies about Korean submarines
The charities want your money and the U.N. referees
There are even sites for zombies and watching killing sprees
And endless streams of video to set your poor mind free
A conference in Moscow, a dentist pulling teeth
Christ knows what you’ll catch if theses maniacs you meet
A tragedy on a newscast, the fighting Greek and Turk
The insanity of suicide, in my social network
