People with Placards


People with placards
All over this town
People with placards
Bring me down

Come buy the leather
Sofa that must go
This is the final week
For the twelfth week in a row

Every item 6 dollars
And splotched all with flowers
Every item 6 dollars
And it lasts 6 hours

Hire someone desperate
Forty-nine bucks a pop
To stand in a cow suit
On the corner block

Ousting the unborn
Out of the womb
I'll never do it
Do I have to look?

If I didn't think
Getting saved was required
Is one verse on a poster
Going to save me from fire?

People with placards
All over this town
People with placards
Bring me down

That guy in the picture could easily be me.

Anyhow, I really hate when people are advertising something really cheap, like "little ceasars breadsticks, free with purchase of 2 large pizzas". That is some one's life, they advertise free breadsticks.

Right, Trevor. It's like anyone with a placard isn't doing anything worthwhile, they're just trying to persuade others, a tactic that is ineffective 90% of the time.

And the cow suits thing wasn't made up. I see cows and Uncle Sams on corner blocks on a regular basis around here.
