Just tell us how it happened. Throw the courtesy aside.
Vague murmurings of hushed restraint are more than I can take.
I’m leaping to conclusions while I wonder how he died.
There is more than vain conjecture I’m presuming one can make . . .
Whether natural, accidental overdose or suicide,
It’s too late for social niceties. He’s reached the other side.
Someone I knew as an acquaintance recently died and no one would say how.

Feathers won't remain when the bird is gone
Nor adornment worn when the nights get long
and the moon is pale, and the lights are loud
and the crowds are strong and the city proud

Yet lyrics remain when the notes are gone
and your legacy after rites are rung
and your spirit soars, far off out of view
but we saw it here when your words were new.

Greta, oh Greta, you’re freaking out.
Our planet won’t perish. You'll grow up.
Hyped and promoted by globalist funds,
Your unbalanced drama makes us cringe.

Greta, oh Greta, you’re barking mad;
Your handlers have let out too much leash.
Time to lie down on your favorite mat
And pray to the Lord Jesus Christ.
What’s infuriating about manipulations by the Non Profit Industrial Complex is that they harvest the goodwill of the people, especially young people. They target those who were not given the skills and knowledge to truly think for themselves by institutions which are designed to serve the ruling class. Capitalism operates systematically and structurally like a cage to raise domesticated animals. Those organizations and their projects which operate under false slogans of humanity in order to prop up the hierarchy of money and violence are fast becoming some of the most crucial elements of the invisible cage of corporatism, colonialism and militarism.”

Dissatisfied Democrats’ latest refrain:
First Russia, then Nazis, now finally Ukraine.
What is their newest peeve with 45 Cheeto ?
At this point I cannot even follow their kangaroo court circus because it makes no sense. I get it . . . they hate Trump. Anything else?

Two particles zooming quickly away
Forever linked no matter where they stray
They've become entangled, their quantum states
Eternally joined in cosmic play

Such is the bond between our souls sublime
Unbroken across all of space-time
We've become entangled, ineffably linked
Our lives fused together in perfect rhyme

There are more than two genders

Trump is a ****

Or the planet will die by 2030

Diversity is strength

Believe women

White supremacists

You create reality

Sounds like conspiracy

I could not care less
concerning global warming.
That's YOUR religion.

I'm not interested
in your fake apocalypse.
You need to get saved.

You substituted
this silly theory of doom
for Faith and true Hope.
As tens of thousands of city school kids left free-cut opportunity to smoke ****, climate advocates can play miniature golf and go shopping to sustain political pressure on governments and companies that produce those emissions.

One of them rolled up a joint and passed it around shortly before noon.

He had no intention of joining the demonstration against fossil fuels that was getting underway.

“I mean,I thought about it, but what could I really do for the Super Lemon Haze **** vape cartridge on a hotter planet and angry at world leaders for failing to arrest the masses of young people in thousands of cities and towns worldwide?"

It was the first time that children and young people had demonstrated to demand climate action in so many places.
