I will tell you why you have the Heebie- Jeebies
Which you haven’t had since you were a kid
Before you knew the Boogie Men were fiction.
The Boogie Men are real, not at all what once you thought them to be
You meet them every day
Your head spinning every way.
You try to avoid their message.
War is Peace…Greed is Good…Hate is love
Facts are Fiction…Money is Speech…Climate change a Hoax…
The Enemy is the Other…The Poor are the Lazy…
The Rich are the Savior…the Establishment out of touch…
Our Taxes are for Guns… how else is there to keep the Peace?
Science is for the Fuzzy Headed…The Bomb the Voice of God!
The thirteen commandments of the extreme…
They put Christ back in “Merry Christmas” take all else away.
The extreme, once we thought could never rise in this precious land
Much less receive our vote at the ballot box
Left hand on our hearts right arms raised in salute.
So, now, we have the Heebie-Jeebies
Little did we know the Boogie Men are us!
May it be not too late to restore the original Second Commandment.
The bomb is ticking… we must hurry… the earth is in the balance.
