IT'S ONLY RIGHT
It's only right we should cheer ourselves up
when hearing of the death of innocents,
of those fresh from the womb,
and of those who have outstayed their welcome
through age; of those who were
in the way of someone's plans
through strife, moving objects,
gun or knife, it's only right.
It's only right we should feel guilty
though innocent ourselves, for who would not
rather be here than dragged off to uncertainty.
So let's raise a glass, or two or three or four,
as we cheer ourselves up a little bit more.
It could have been one of us after all,
it's only right.
