Fuckin' Folkie

I've slipped through
the cracks of time
My tunes won't be
heard by many
Only my close friends
and family
know my rhymes
Record company's
don't want to hear
songs about peace
and love and non-violence
and anti-prejudice
These things just
aren't chic and
they don't make
the big bucks
So, the good
message goes
unheard
by the masses
and the good fight
seems in vain
Sex, greed
hate, money
and corruption
is what the labels push
Pardon me for
being a peacemaker
After all I'm just
a fuckin' folkie
with an acoustic guitar
