THE WRONG PRIORITIES

YOU SPEND BILLIONS ON WARS
WHILE THE HUNGRY STARVES
WHAT, YOUR PRIORITIES ARE?
PEOPLE ARE IN NEED OF MEDICAL CARE
AND YET THE GOVERNMENT 
DON’T HAVE FUNDS TO SPARE
 THEIR PRIORITIES LIES IN WARFARE
THE POPULACE ARE TAXED-BURDEN
THEIR CHILDREN’S FUTURES ARE UNCERTAIN
MOST OWE STUDENTS LOANS
MANY HAVE LOST THEIR HOMES
HOMELESSNESS HAS GROWN
THEY SAY OUR COMPLAINTS 
ARE OVERBLOWN
MEANTIME MILLIONS ARE SPENT
ON YOUR MISSIONS TO SPACE
WHILE GUN CULTURE 
THE SOCIETY HAS EMBRACED 
 CRIME HAS NOW OUTPACED
LAWFULNESS, WHAT DISGRACE
AS THE GOVERNMENT PRIORITIZED
ARMS RACE
HUMAN LIVES ARE NOT FIRST PLACE
WE NEED GOD’S MERCY
 WE NEED GOD’S GRACE
