The Good And The Bad (Poem & Quote) - Poem by Dave Tanguay
The good and the bad we view on TV
We all live here together, in the land of the free
Hollywood decides who is good - and who is bad
The viewers cheer on the good guys - this is so sad.
The good guys all defend the corrupt-and evil empire
We see them all as heroes - caught in the cross fire
The bad guys are paid to play the role of psychological
Have you noticed the way these cops, come on as super
Not only on screen, but in real life as well
For they live to lock up all the misfits - into a cell.
They say it’s their job, to serve the community.
What they see in America, is the land of opportunity.
They protect the rich and powerful, who have control of
The working class
For they would rather kiss a-, than to work like a jackass
To fight for your country, - is not to side with the
But, to rebel against the system - which created such
So many brave men are doing time, with their names
For they would not conform - to this so called - life standard
For, the Lord takes no sides, with him the bad guys are well Understood
Those who side with the system - are truly the real hoods.
“The notion that a radical is one who hates his country is naïve and usually idiotic. He is, more likely, one who likes his country more than the rest of us, and is thus more disturbed than the rest of us when he sees it debauched. He is not a bad citizen turning to crime; he is a good citizen driven to despair.” H.L. Mencken
