An open letter to our politicians:

Will it be worth it in the end?

When your children question the role that you played

Will you be able to look in their eyes

And state from your heart that you did the right thing?

What did they promise you, what did it take for you

To join the insanity, to betray humanity

It didn’t take much to acquire your soul

Some power and money turned your heart to coal

Should you decide that your greed is enough

To justify all of the things that you’ve done

Should you conclude that you’ve been really lucky

Glad to have been given the opportunity

To make your own personal deal with the devil

What makes you think that you’ll get what was promised?

What makes you think that he’ll keep his word?

You think you are certain to get the reward?

Will you find safety behind massive stone walls

When due to your betrayal the rest of the world falls?

Will you find solace behind gilded gates

While down to your greed the world disintegrates?

I give you my personal damn guarantee

That you’ll come to see it eventually

It’s more than just certain, there’s less than no doubt

Your Faustian deals will never work out.
