December’s Song of the Month

I’m proud to announce that I have successfully finished my 12th song of the year.

there seems to be a tendency to guarantee we all be busy

we hurry and scurry all in a flurry we race

to consume and balloon we produce so much it makes us dizzy

under the assumption our gumption will not go to waste   

to be free we all need  to get on our knees and feed the economy

we got to grow, put on a show, 

go with the flow, and keep on being devotees

we’ve got to drill, mine those hills, pay those bills, push, pull, and shove

all I really want to do is live, learn, laugh, and love

they tell me to pick my team , my nominee

and concede to their rules

where we defeat ourselves, compete, mistreat, and beat each other red, white, black and blue

we get all emotional about things we can’t control  as we play the roles they approve

to meet someone else’s goals and bargain with our souls, do we really win or do we lose?

I don’t want to fight just to prove my might and beat my chest

I don’t need the extremes of these teams who need to prove they are the best

I don’t need to crow, overthrow, those below so I can be above

all I really want to do is live, learn, laugh, and love

I want to live each day as if it is its own

I want to learn all the things I thought I would know when I was grown

l want to laugh at my folly and not be afraid of the unknown

I want to love whomever I’m with even if I’m all alone

we’ve agreed that our deeds will proceed to meet our needs

and all that we do, as we fuss, cuss and fume to receive 

our piece of the pie, though it’s high in the sky out of our reach

as we concede to appease the creed to feed the greedyiest

but I don’t feel compelled to offer help to build a wealth of stuff

 I understand the demand to plan and expand, advance and crush

I don’t need to be the bourgeoisie

my life fits me like a glove

all I really want to do is live, learn, laugh, and love

all I really want to do is live, learn, laugh, and love
