Self Deceivers Evermore

I’m all on edge today

Is it the bushfires and the haze

And the general malaise

That has hung above our head for days?

 

I can’t tell anymore

 

Is it the knowledge that the world

Is trying to rid itself of the plague

Of us humans that have outstayed

Our welcome as we crave

 

more and more and more?

 

Is it that as we argue in our sleep

The deaded earth will keep on spinning

With our corpses madly grinning

But we’ll still think that we are winning?

 

Self deceivers evermore
