Once for the witches rabbit hole And twice for the foxes hymn While one began to pluck her mole The other tricked and teased men Though two and the same They’re known for different years And both are to blame For trickery and fears
When people are people It's the strangest thing to see Because people are rarely Who they pretend to be Friends soon become your enemy Smiles don their faces wide They will profess to be walking Fornent to God's side
The trickery and fakery The beguiled full of charm The only thing they want to do Is cause you painful harm The sweetness and the light they shine Predatory as seen A flick of a knife in moonlight Quickly turns vulturine
If they seem too good to be true It's no wonder, I say Time will present that truth forthright In a startling display They garner an overdue curse A soul ache deathless slay So I'll take dogs over people True friends in every way
Jackals and ******* Clowns and criminals; Lies and libelous lambastes With integrity minimal. Grande Guignol politics From pusillanimous politicians Poisoning the populace With only selfish ambitions.
Sleight of hand shysters And self-appointed diplomats Throw out all their morals And set out the welcome mat For those the most likely To pay the highest bribe And have no care if they sell The land from under the tribe.
So what if water is poisoned? As long as they make money. After all, the rich aren’t harmed. Now isn’t that incredibly funny? Who cares about the future? What matters is right now And the profit they can make. It is what the law will allow.
And those that wrote those laws So cleverly and quietly confused The very people stupid enough To so gullibly to be thus used. But jackals and ******* Really aren’t animals at all. Nor are they household pets Who come when they are called.
