Fooling Nobody

Lost mermaids sing of trains running

Above the sea on bridges in bays by seas.

Longing for a ride the side of thanks and

Emblems salutes the coming of the dawn.

Following the sound of deep sadness, the

Innocent children evaluate the legislation

Passed by fools and other rulers who

Doubt the effectiveness of the existing

Heads of state. Humbugs and grouches,

Grinches and dragons, and other funny

Dinosaurs come to grips with the fact

That the end is coming fast, so they

Better do something quickly. Same song,

Different dance. They are fooling nobody.
