Listen, they’re talking in capitals 
Nevermind who
Usually on my computer, it gives me a headache
But I try to look
Once in the morning for any and every development
Today’s conversation:
The things we’ve yet to learn
About the things that yesterday
We had to wait to learn tomorrow.

If it paid to be informed, I would still be overdrawn
Most of the time I care a lot, or not at all 
I feel guilty if I don’t, lack conviction when I do
There was a protest on Saturday 
I followed the report
And read of others elsewhere too
While I was sitting in my room
Trying to write something political
How difficult it is to strike a chord
When you’re worried that the neighbours might complain about the noise.
