Standing in line At some government office Where they think You have time just to wait I’ve waded through traffic jams, bad weather and worse crowds Then they tell me the caseworker is late I’m Mad as Hell!! I aiin’t taking it no more While some bureaucrat Sits back and scoffs So, I’m warning you now I’ve pledged with a vow For my own self-defense I’m a button: Push Me And I Go Off!!! Buying a burger At the local McDonald’s I don’t get no ‘extra value’ With my meal I try to be patient I can understand complications So I shrug like it’s No big deal
But when some managerial type Serves me bullshit and hype Then threatens to call in the la I stare dead into the eyes Of malicious incompetence And, dammit, I just have to Go Off!!! Sitting all alone In my own little world Considering the mysteries of life When some nickel-slick hustler With a two dollar pitch Feels compelled to give me some strife I excuse myself Apologizing profusely Not wanting to be blamed for a fault But this joy stealing menace Is plain rude and offensive And like a ‘Saturday Night Special’ I Go Off!!! I’m not hard to please And like anyone else I like to play around; Sing, dance and laugh But don’t crowd VirgilArtVerbal Graphics my world
