In lieu of…
instead of life, chose death,
see how far you get.
instead of death, choose life,
more we will see of strife.
instead of love, choose hate,
see you at the hells gate.
instead of hate, choose love,
fits us all like that of a glove.
instead of fear, choose to be brave,
we will find in the end many that will rave.
instead of rich, choose poor,
funny how it does open more doors.
instead of light, choose dark,
we will never get to see a lark.
instead of dark, choose light,
when we die, we will go to the heights.
instead of anger & rage, choose to forgive,
we will see just how happy we can live.
instead of welfare, choose to pay our fair,
we will learn what in life is our share.
in lieu of this, choose that,
we will see just how much there is to accomplish…
