Syvis & Friends: All Is Wonderful

I've been taught to say
that I am fine
they ask me How are you?
I say I am fine, on the cloud nine.
Talking superficial things
not deep or shattering
just flattering chattering.

Say all, all is wonderful
all, all is wonderful
smile, be positive
turn a blind eye
and forgive
never tell that it is not ok.

They say I should
never criticize
They say my heritage
I should disguise culturewise.
Hiding religous signs
opinions, ironic lines
the outer shine
the heart of mine.

Say all...

One day you're eating freedom fries
the past is bright when the media rectifies
people don't die, they just pass away
deceased or challenged, black or gay
humor offending, cruel to tell
for an infidel.

They say I should praise
without a cause
they show me signs when I
should give applause or stomp aloud.
A puppet filled with superlatives
taboos, swear words exclusive
political correctness.

Say all...
