Floodlights pouring into the cemetery, all night long

Tombstones afire in ghoulish orange

So much for rest in peace -- none do now, either

Can't even live a single day without looking at a clock.


Growing the economy, like a cancer

Let's pull the plug, start over, reboot.

I must admit, there's a certain allure...

Today's sacrifices will become tomorrow's opportunities.
