We don't seem to have the answer, to eliminate the cancer.

This American society is very problematic
reasons being is republican and democratic
Too much stupid alcoholic and dope attic
Police and criminals carrying the automatic
Crooks don't have a good aim
police officers about the same
Many governors and politicians game
almost everyone looking to blame
The animals run the asphalt jungle untamed 
almost everywhere society is inflamed
Yet the real crooks never get named

All our problems are very well known
yet the problem solvers brains seem gone
we continue to reap what's sown
like the solutions aren't well known
Rapist and criminals get put in
turn around they're back out again
committing some of the same toxic sin
Good sensible peoples hair grows thin
because they can't seem to win

The same problems that captivate
are the same ones that instigate
On the books
too many crooks
The sheriff even know their looks
Many sit right in plain view
if only the president knew
he'd probably arrest a few
Here's the stinger
the count might be on one finger
which keeps us all in anger
Peep out the scope
you can almost see the drug dealers
bag up the dope
They might live right next door
call the police they can't seem to score
Give our soldiers a great big hug
they're fighting an Afgan war that's
mostly about the drug
yet it's swept under the rug
Holy war my eye
as American as apple pie
and we all know why
the buzzard flies up high

In our polarized society, one person's crook is another person's hero. Enjoyed.
