Don’t Get Upset Because You Asked

Don’t Get Upset Because You Asked

I appear to be making enemies
Everywhere that I go
I get asked what my opinion is
So I let everybody know

It doesn’t matter what the question
They get upset at my answer
I don’t know why they start the inquisition
They react as if I have given them cancer

Then they go assuming I have opinions
On any issue that they raise
Whether on Politics and the Devils minions
Whatever my answer I know I’ll get no praise

I am learning silence is the Golden Rule
To utter anymore you would be a fool

So when they ask me what I think of the war
And the real reasons for the fight
I never again call NATO the Beast and Whore
Or that the NAZIs are the New Right

I never respond about the rise of the Military
Or the Freedoms the security measures have destroyed
I keep silent about our economic long term security
Or where the next invasion force will be deployed

I will never again talk about religion
About Christ being the bastard son of man
Or how close George W Bush came to Armageddon
Blaming Islam for Bushs’ daddies evil plan

I am keeping silent now these days
So it is not me on who everyone preys

I will never utter another word
When someone asks what party I support
That everything they say another lie heard
No matter the Party just another evil rort

Never again will I mention the starving
When someone mentions a pun like Bill Gates
Or mention how many children are dying
While the Wests’ go back twice to fill their plate

Not a word from me will anyone hear
About how many meals the cost of a nuclear bomb
Or how the war on terror is now the fear
Of whom the Liberators will drop another one on

I am keeping my opinion to protect myself
So have your own and blame yourself.
