Gone Jackals

Gone Jackals - Legacy

rate me

December '61

My Dad's wages light

Still on that salary

We, all four, could sleep tight

Right now if you drank from

That very same well

You'd need a run of luck

To score a bed in a trick hotel

Is this the legacy of too much for too few that I see?

The kind of legacy that's tossin' some good men to their knees

The "Great Society's"

Maligned concrete cage

Sits dead and vacant now -

At least it kept out rain

With all those corners cut

The cracks grow wide and near

I heard some cash was saved

But where it's gone ain't clear...

Who goes down next I don't know

I don't know nothin' anymore

Tomorrow's legacy that's layin' in state awaits reprieve

I always thought that when a man goes down

You do your best to pick him up

But how can the milk of kindness trickle down

When it's syphoned off and cheats the cup?
