They Forgot My Butter Knife

Oh silly world

First you took away my rights to live as a free human

You did this by telling me how to eat, how to sleep, what to do.


It worked, because then you took away my guns

Took away my religion

Took away my color and gender

You even took away my work.


They say they can help, that they can make life better

as they make the shit pile ever more high and deep



Seems a bit hopeless what with voter fraud, and people who can't make up their minds on what sex they shoulde be...


But it't not

You see, I cannot wage rebellion or war as Twitter would ban me

I cannot post on Facebook that China is killing Americans with a smile on their face

It does seem like they won, that power of a few is better than all of those idiots like me


They took alot from me... and her... and him... and a lot of others, but they forgot to take my butter knife

a simple tool

and with it, i can spread butter on them anywhere those fuckers sleep...
