Of course, the government is to blame

We smear our streets with fiendish fodder
Destroy nature without a bother
but the government is to blame

We speed up at a yellow light
And Always think we are right
but the government is to blame

We call people names, yell and swear
Tear out clothes, break some chairs
yet the government is to blame

We avouch politics but do not vote
hope magic keeps the country afloat
yet the government is to blame

We’ll drive polluting cars,
break the law, clog the streets,
run-down public transports
but we won’t go green
Of course, the government is to blame

We’ll call them gods, yet bribe them all
& somehow hope divine grace will fall
YET the government is to blame

When we make the government
We are the government
Stop & think of what we could do,
Then think some more,
And then, think again
