Feeling the lash today
of those who tell us “go away”,
Seems our story’s getting sort of stale
time to hear another tale.
They enjoyed a vicarious thriller,
chatting about your vicious killer,
but now its old hat
so enough of that.
What I thought they came to see
was how to act with dignity
when life hits its fiercest blow,
but they want a trumped up reality show
with plots and yelling
drama most compelling.
Don’t they get that this is our life, that we live every day.
Wish I could make it go away.
Morgan you’re just as dead as you were before
pity it doesn’t interest any more
Sorry the story’s lost its cachet, but its a story we must tell
to put a killer in a cell.
So if you really want to give advise
and make snarky comments that aren’t nice
Fine, and welcome to the “game” its great.
Though the admission is pricey – its somebody’s fate.
Is it your son or your daughter you’ll throw on the plate?
