This Is Fine

The inspiration for this is pretty self-explanatory, I think.

Two panels from the webcomic "Gunshow" by KC Green show a dog sitting at a table with a cup of coffee in a burning house. "This is fine," the dog says in the second panel.

It’s a beautiful morning, the city’s on fire
This. Is. Fine.
Our circumstances are not at all dire
This. Is. Fine.
Everything’s normal as normal can be
Though what “normal” means now, we can’t quite agree
What it means tomorrow, I guess that we’ll see
This. Is. Fine.

The market’s rebounding and so are the dead
This. Is. Fine.
Our Glorious Leader is out of his head
This. Is. Fine.
We have to reopen, no matter the price
We have to be willing to sacrifice
By “we” I mean “you,” of course — isn’t that nice?
This. Is. Fine.


There’s someone else killed just because he was black
This. Is. Fine.
Of terrible news there does not seem a lack
This. Is. Fine.
We mustn’t show weakness, so roll out the corps
We’ll shoot and gas protests to even the score
You know all lives matter, but some matter more
This. Is. Fine.

On ballots and masks and the facts that are wrong
We’ll likely be fighting the whole summer long
I don’t even know how to finish this song…




This is the bio am I doing this right? Probably not.
