"I'm trying to tell you"



Note: When I was 19 I had a friend who refused to write poetry. Know why? Because in the Deaf school she'd been in growing up, her teachers had said Deaf people couldn't write poetry, or only crappy poetry. Uh-huh. So while some Deafies I've talked to dislike my obsession with music and poetry (I can understand why y'all avoid the singing) you'll still see it popping up here now and then. Just cuz.

Saw President Bush on my tv last night
Tellin my nation the country's all right
Well Mama lost her job at the store last week
And Daddy's got to close the farm to earn his keep
And it's screw down, double thick, tinfoil hat
Don't listen to the wingnut he's just saying that

They were saying the Pressie had powers galore
"he doesn't deserve them" "but we're going to war!"
Well, Mama's got a wiretap on her Nokia phone
and Daddy's sweating it out in a jail cell alone
but it's screw down, double thick, tinfoil hat
Don't listen to the wingnut he's just saying that

He was sayin somethin shallow bout the Clean Air Act
well my sister in New York gets asthma attacks
a whole lot of coughing since 11-oh-Nine
The government gave our money to Jack and Tom
but it's screw down, double thick, tinfoil hat
Don't listen to the wingnut he's just saying that
