Forget Calm and Get Angry

The sage avoids extremes, excesses, and complacency. -Tao Te Ching 29

Complacency: self-satisfaction accompanied by unawareness of actual dangers or deficiencies (Webster’s)

Working outside the lines, under the law

Waiting to see if the State will fall

See no evil, hear no evil,

Me and mine are doing fine

Don’t know if the taxes are feeding a crackhead

Or babies at school

Mom’s in prison, pops is a fool

Grown up knowing the deck is stacked

Got an Ace in your pocket?

Or a knife in your back?

Hollywood is a vice

Outside the box no one plays nice

Pass me the bottle, Mr. Jones
