The Day the Bomb Dropped

And so I’m hanging with my main man, Dan

Who can’t afford rent, dignity now inept,

Cause federal subsidy is a damn scam!

 

And we imagine shelterless street sultans

Rooting through boarding home shanties, stench swept

And so I’m hanging with my main man, Dan

 

And he curses disability program,

Cursing the fate that he must accept

Cause federal subsidy is a damn scam.

 

I offer him choices. He rejects every plan.

Costly mansions adorn our cross town schlep.

And so I am hanging with my main man, Dan

 

My flesh freezes, colors mannequin clam:

Cause he just cursed at me; cause he just wept;

Cause federal subsidy is a damn scam!

 

The radio talks, bombing just began.

Foreigners die in same insane power concept

And so I’m hanging with my main man, Dan

Cause federal subsidy is a damn scam.
