sometimes it happens on the street
right down from us
sometimes it happens to us
we are all in this together

I don't particularly give a shit if Inhofe and Coburn are both assholes
seriously, I don't. Oklahoma got plowed
there are dogs and horses and cows and kids
that don't know left from right

somebody got to feed them
somebody got to find them somewhere to sleep
maybe just maybe we can get together long enough to do something worth
remembering this time next week

goddamit, I really do not give a flying fuck about politics sometimes
but the concern of the polis of the moment
of get my neighbor safe
and stand together in the midst of the blitz
when the storm comes we have to stand together
no matter how much i can't stand that rat bastard
his kids are just kids
and his horses and cows
and his dogs
do I really despise them too?

when the sun comes up tomorrow and the gavel rings it open
maybe
just fucking maybe we can settle differences for five minutes or five days
but i might just be half stoned

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
