The Chinese have had one for centuries.
Pink Floyd rose to international fame because of it.

Mother, do you think they'll drop the bomb?
 Mother, do you think they'll like this song?
 Mother, do you think they'll try to break my balls?

Ya can't have any pudding if ya don't eat yer meat.
How can ya have any pudding if ya don't eat yer meat?

Teacher: What have we here, laddie? Mysterious scribblings? A secret code? No! Poems, no less! Poems, everybody!

[classmates laughs]

Teacher: The laddie reckons himself a poet!

[reads poem from Pink's little black book]


Donald Trump

President Donald Trump told reporters  aboard Air Force One on Wednesday night that his proposed wall along the US-Mexico border would need to be see-through so that people on the US side wouldn't get hit by massive sacks of drugs tossed over it.

He wants to do it now.
Like the great Wizard of Oz.
Giving us all what we want.
Turning out to be nothing but illusion.
A return to the Dark Ages.
We already possess what he portends to bestow.
"Just follow the yellow brick road".
"Pay no attention to that man behind the curtain."
Remember, these things work both ways.
Keeping people in, as well as out.
Be careful what you wish for, you just might get it.
"Run Like Hell" as we all become just ...
... "Another Brick in the Wall" ...

Author's Note

Pete
'We don't need no education
We don't need no thought control
No dark sarcasm in the classroom
Teachers leave them kids alone
Hey! Teachers! Leave them kids alone
All in all it's just another brick in the wall
All in all you're just another brick in the wall
We don't need no education
We don't need no thought control
No dark sarcasm in the classroom
Teachers leave those kids alone
Hey! Teachers! Leave those kids alone
All in all you're just another brick in the wall
All in all you're just another brick in the wall
"Wrong, do it again!"
"If you don't eat yer meat, you can't have any pudding
How can you have any pudding if you don't eat yer meat?"
"You! Yes, you behind the bike sheds, stand still laddy!"'

- Roger Waters
