Earth Bound

Is it to anyone's surprise,
That those who had despised their attempts...
To live better lives,
With a focus and seriousness.
And criticized by the ones who perceived themselves,
As being 'down-to-Earth'...
Are the very ones who today complain,
About the people who accepted their philosophy.
By remaining ignorant and depending upon stupidity.

And this effectively has created their detriment.
With a witnessing of their wishes eroding their communities.

Is it to anyone's surprise,
That those who had despised their attempts...
To live better lives,
Are the very ones who today complain,
About the people who accepted their philosophy.
And...
Can not believe to accept,
These are the people they kept Earth bound.
And...
These are the people,
Today they don't want to be around.

'We need better education.
We need better jobs.
We need police protection.
We need, we need, we need...'

~More professional mental assistance,
Perhaps?
To help you adjust to 'reality' as it is? ~

'We just want to be perceived as being 'Down-to-Earth'.'

~Don't worry about that.
You've been very convincing.
It continues to cost us a fortune,
To get you to acknowledge your own garbage.~
