Extraneous devices, miscellaneous and quixotic times

Extraneous devices in miscellaneous times
Hidden in the cat litter of our quixotic times
Warmongers to the left warmongers to the right
I wonder under which bed the bomb explodes tonight
I thought I was a human being with whatever that entails
But with all this GM food around I may have come from snails
Progress was the word when electricity was invented
But if you say it causes cancer clusters, they say you are demented
The battery hens may deliver, more than a million eggs a day
But stuff it I’m sure their life’s worth more, they just don’t have a say
Progress, give me progress, is the greedy carnivores call
More dollars in my pocket I couldn’t give a stuff for you all
The rapacious hands of bankers in each and every pocket stealing
A least a whore, when taking more, will pretend to do it with feeling
The more we see the more we want the more we’re watched the more were cuffed
To bankers and developers (wankers and those who don’t give a shit)
Now let me get back to the line I started in an earlier time
Extraneous devices, miscellaneous and quixotic times
The wars they crave with our children’s lives they pave a walk to a grave yard new
It’s business, just a business say the arms brokers and makers
If I don’t make them someone else will and remember we are peacemakers
There’s so much in this world that’s full of joy and pleasure
Why do we have to fight a war just to gauge our very own measure?
I don’t know where this is heading; I don’t know where it’s been
It’s just part of that thing I call my life that’s somewhere in between
So here’s to you a human true for you can make the choices
That animals and plants will never have for you are now their voices
But not just for them to say the words for human beings are also muted
Gagged by those who rule the world, through money, greed and abuses
Speak up; speak out for if we don’t, then we get what we deserve
So use your voice, your writing skills and give the world a serve.
