‘Tis the Season

‘Tis The Season

by Derek Flex Felix


‘Tis the season

For dreaming and believing

When all we do is hurt each other

Pain and anguish like former lovers


We are constantly fighting

Cause hard words are biting

Revealing the ugly side inside ourselves

This is America a nation in bad mental health


Impatient drivers who abuse the law

Even if it means hit and runs causing an uproar

Broken hearts for families due to idiocy

No wonder Donald Trump could get elected sheer lunacy


There’s no hope for the future if we don’t change

It’s time to take back the streets and lock up these thugs in a cage

Cause it could be yours or mine who’s next

This ain’t the world we grew up in what the heck


I see a lot of heartless people uneducated without any soul

They’re too busy running a muck having lost all control

The kind of spineless self serving individualists who must go

Lock them up toss the key throw them out of this show


You don’t belong on these streets

It’s time to take out the trash and miscreants

Let the rats have at it for their next meal

Making us a stronger city with better appeal


‘Tis the season

For deceit and cheating

From drug dealers

Crooks and feelers


Who’d kill their own

Just for quick cash and a new i-phone

The kind who destroy society

While living in luxury and proprietary


The kind who get rich pushing heroin

Contributing to addicts overdosing and deaths

You’re the real felons who don’t deserve to live

The next stop is jail without bail and no wealth


No more lenient sentences

For hurtful people with no conscience

Sending you away to barbed wire and caged fences

You’re the ones who should suffer and be unconscious


Rot in hell like the criminals you are

You work for the Devil see fire red

No more lifestyle just a wall and bars

Sealed off from the outside world in bed


Let’s rid ourselves of the weak

Who are leeches that drain us

The time has come to rise up and speak

Leaving behind the cruel hopeless murderers
