You ask why we can’t have nice things?

You ask why we can’t have nice things?

Then you tell me you don’t vote,
because it brings no change of note.
This I say to your lack of conviction,
This is why we have no nice things.

Then you pass a homeless man,
and blame him for his state.
And so I respond to your lack of feeling,
This is why we have no nice things.

Then you bring up immigration,
and how it steals from job creation.
That attitude which from you beams,
This is why we have no nice things.

Then you ask me why it is,
that you should be your brothers keeper.
To this I ask you straight and true,
when you fall, don’t they help you?
If you respond, but that’s on them,
you really should now make amends.

For these are many the reasons grim,
That we can’t have any nice things again.
