It's Clever to Say

Updated on July 26, 2015

It's clever to say

Flying monkeys

They do all the dirty work

Tools in your hands

Clever words.

Wars you start

Something you believe

It's all in the things you say

It's pretty plane.

Nothing's changed

Struggling imaginations cry

Warped inside

Waiting to start another war.

Scapegoats are the monster you create

The audience buys into the game

Victims you leave without a trace

It's a pleasure, while you raise your fist

Acting in your latest charade.
