Horn of plenty
A shitload of promise
But it’s always empty

A bus and a yacht and a sharp-nosed jet
And a blue passport are as good as it gets
In the land of milk and honey
Where the hope is all sunny for
Controlling our borders, our laws and our money

Weep because it’s pitiful and laugh because it’s funny
How the upper lip is stiff but the follow-through is runny
