Garda Corruption

Why did the guards conspire against an honest man?

Is it because he knew their plan?

Why did they frame him for something he didn’t do?

Why did they pretend they hadn’t got a clue?

Watch out or they’ll do the same to you.

Objectivity 101

Objective about others but not yourself, does that hit home?

Are you the pope of Rome?

Seeing things from others point of view is all very well on the road to Hell.

Or only from your own, leave me alone.

You may infer, I may imply, and on and on until we die.

So objectivity is not possible someone said I don’t know who. You?

Absolute subjectivity may be a contradiction in terms.

Your body may be eaten by worms.

Are absolutes absolutely wrong?

You be the judge, I end my song.

I’m not quite sure about one line here, so what?

That’s your lot.

Eye

There’s more to things than meets the eye, I ask myself, I wonder why.

Is life a lie?

A commoner seems less than a king but is he really, what’s the thing?

They have arms and legs and walk and talk, have you heard a jackdaw squalk?

Who is less and what is more, a window is not quite a door.

When you see things as they are, the planet Mars, the morning star, then maybe you realise its time you opened both your eyes.

Can you tell truth from lies?

Lies do not fool the wise.

Who Shoots First?

Okay, international relations are at a critical point.

Someone’s nose is out of joint.

If I bomb you should you bomb me too, two can play that game.

Eternal shame.

Go on punk, make my day, I’ll blow you to smithereens.

Human beings.

It was ever thus, why make a fuss?

Will there be any left of us?

Here comes my bus.

I know I’m just a slob.

Someone has to do this job.

Straw Man

They clutch at straws because they are ignored.

When war comes you won’t be bored.

God preserve us from people who say they know it all.

I suppose I might as well be talking to the wall.

The great white hope or black may be a dope.

Leaving you hanging on a rope.

Who, just who, are the people who kill each other?

They kill father mother sister brother.

Anger is not the answer.

Don’t choose a chancer.

Who wants cancer?

They may be right for the wrong reason.

Is love out of season?

Cyber Warfare

Does cyber warfare work both ways, do we do it too?

I ask you.

Can you believe a word you hear, is Putin whispering in your ear or maybe Donald Trump?

Thanks for the tea, one lump.

Who are the good guys, who the bad, the question drives me mad.

There are no good guys said a soldier in some one or other war.

We pretend we are, that’s what lies are for.

So now you troll, so now you hate, hoping to destabilise each other’s state.

More fool you if you believe the people who deceive.

Take it with a grain of salt, what was Disney’s first name, Walt.

Its never anybody’s fault.

Not mine or ours, or so they say.

They want it all to be their way.

Well, okay, happy ending.

Bridges need mending.

Gentle

Be gentle with the paranoid, they become quite easily annoyed.

Do not expect reasonability, that’s not in their sensibility.

The paranoid are mad, that’s true but sad.

They mistrust you and your actions, they form themselves into factions.

They are not sane, causing death and pain.

They can be extreme, hear the news, see what I mean.

Tit for tat, that’s that.

They are sure they’re right, so they fight.

With all their might.

They want to be king in control of everything.

Me? I sing.
