Everything is Fine



Everything is fine
payday comes
on Friday
car payment due
but its all fine

Don't need to worry
about a thing
weather
unusually hot
but not bothered
sitting in idling car
talking on Samsung phone
everything is fine

What's to complain about?
we are on top
tip-top of the  
$$$$ mountain
our global military power
will be safe
even if Bernie wins
heard him say so
we'll stay #1
you got the Bern?

Everything is fine
ships under production
just down the street
paychecks coming in
spending big at local
coffee shop
everybody making $$$$

Just take a walk
see it all
right before your eyes
cars zooming by
windows rolled up
AC turned on
full blast
everything is fine
here in vacation land

feels like southwest
Texas
dry as a bone
not distracted
by anything
except occasional
roar of Blue Angels
practicing
for weekend show
some call it
the price of freedom
I call it
ritual sacrafice
the collapse
of the Aztecs
all over again

nobody noticed
at the time 
everything was fine
