Journeyman! Oh ! Journeyman!

All your life you toiled

In the end you faded

You swore by rules always

But the one who didn’t rise through the ranks

Through subterfuge and sweet talk

They became wealthy

You worked 12 hours a day

And when that was not enough

You also got hustled on the side

Journeyman! Oh! Journeyman

All your body stressed

In the end diseased

Now that coworker you knew

Became your commander

At your eulogy

Your colleagues praised you and your work

And that commander filled with jealousy

Spoke ill about you

After a few years at his eulogy

No one came

He got cremated

and they celebrated with joy

Where is the big O? ask the people

O saturation levels dropping below 94

Hospitals falling short of beds

Where is the big O?

The greedy and rich hoarding O cylinders

Where is the big O?

Doctors are running around begging for O cylinders

Where is the big O?

Nurses testing positi+ve

Where is the big O?

Bodies lying on the road

Where is the big O?

Parks turning into crematoriums

Where is the big O?

The land turning into Zombieland

Where is the big O?

There is a shortage of O plants

Where is the big O?

The leader and his lawyers telling courts there is sufficient O for all

So can anyone tell us : Where is the big O?

They worship the Savannah

They feast on Mint leaves

They sing folk songs of the River

They beat drums to awaken their kin

They make and travel through their canoe

They live among flora and fauna

One day they see aliens from a vantage point

They see machines destroying the Savannah

They see machines polluting the River

They are driven away from their habitat

Their culture and lives are hijacked

They now live under rules imposed by the alien government

The alien leader is a sadist

A decade later they are extinct

I like fried fish

Its the top dish

Rich in vitamin D

Strengthens the knee

Salmon, good for health

Gives increased wealth

Prawns are tasty

With condiments spicy

Fish and chips near beaches

Snacks when he or she reaches

These tales of seafood ponder

nutrients we need and wander
