A Psalm

By the rivers of Babylon
We sat down and looked around
And we said, this is fine

We put away our ballots and our protest signs
Because those that carried away the vulnerable
Asked us to choose between their evils
And really, what’s the point?

Plus, you and I, we’ve got it pretty good
And did our hands ever truly know
How to create new things?
Did our tongues ever have a clue
About changing hearts?

These horrors we see around us
There’s plenty of time
And distraction enough
To forget them

Blessed are we
Who get to see the new
Summer blockbuster this weekend
