They told me they were safe,

The pesticides, the herbicides, the biocides
They told me not to worry
What's your hurry?
We use them all
In schools, and malls
On smalls and talls
Day care's and nursing homes too?
All true.

They told me "EPA Approved"
To drill into our home
To spray our yard
To kill the pests (the pets)
That used to bug us, that used to love us

Now no living thing disturbs our sleep
Except the cough, the sneeze, the wheeze
"Lucky to be alive"
We are being told
(At least for now)

Our life forever changed,
Our heads untroubled by the carpenter ants,
Poisons, new, improved
These people-cides

Used for genocide, a Holocaust ago
Born in the Camps, these neurotoxins
Now deodorized to deceive
What you might perceive
Easier to breathe the fumes
That seal your doom
Our brains are now oblivious
To the obvious
Our muscles twitch, our memories fail
Concentration, concentrate, conc...

They told me they were safe,
These brain poisons
They told me they were safe
These pet poisons
They told me they were safe,
These people poisons
These terrible toxins
