Do we all suffer from some strange affliction
Or is all we observe a real contradiction?
Who’s the pursuer the fox or the hound?
Is the suspect the victim or those underground?
Is celebrity in of itself a virtue?
Could laws to protect you ultimately hurt you?
Where is it going and where will it end?
Must we now use caution when we speak to a “friend”?
Is it chic to use language that’s vulgar and crass?
Do you think we’ve gone through the looking glass?
We know all the answers to solve this riddle
But we answer in whispers, we guys in the middle
Is it noble to suffer the arrows and slings?
Well take heart it’s not over, the pendulum swings!
