Stranger In Disguise

They don't make friends like useta be
when the world was a safer place  
and biology was about human behavior  
now everyone is a stranger in disguise,
potatoes with eyes may be watching you  

Now we are becoming the shadow people
a Smart Phone without common sense  
afraid to walk at midnight beneath the stars
as hypocrites control the news and media  
taking away The Pledge of Allegiance

Debit cards take the place of a quarter
a bottle of water is sold in jars
people live on the streets or in shelters
saying, Jesus, is a dirty word,
potatoes with eyes may be watching you  

What's the sauce for the goose or the gander
who has the hammer for mistaken identity
to be the judge of a broken-down society  
yet celebrities are transgendered heroes
and yes, God made little green apples
