Twisting and flapping
Never making sense
At the end of the argument
Offered no defence
Stacking the odds
Before the debts accrue
A sign of the times
A case of déjà vu

Tongue, bite your tongue
Declaring the winner
Before the race has run

Like a kid let loose
In the candy store
Suitably rationed
But left wanting more
Addicted to shame
Come to steal the show
Can’t be hurt
By what is never known

Draped in the flag
Never fringed with gold
Follow the trail
Down to Mexico
Fortune favours
The less than the brave
Under CPR
But still can’t be saved
