They say inflation is getting worse.

They

They say inflation
  is getting worse.
They say things are
  getting out of hand.
They say we should
  tighten our belts.
If we try,
  we can win.
They say we can.

They say many people
  are out of work.
They say smokers should
  try to quit today.
Morale, in general,
  is going downhill.
Pollution is
  killing us,
They say.

Did you ever
  stop to wonder?
Give it a thought,
  a moment or two.
About how much
  they have to say?
About how little
  they really do?!

They say the world
  is ending.
It just might
  end today.
So they carry signs,
  they look so sad.
What strange people
  are they.

They think they
  know it all.
They even told us
  God was dead.
They soon discovered
  they were wrong.
No one listened,
  or believed,
What they said.

Now who are they?
  Would you like to know?
The anonymous they?
  Who can they be?
Is it possible
  they are us?
Are they
  sometimes you?
Sometimes me?

They tend to say
  so many things.
Some are good,
  most are bad.
Yet I cannot believe
  I am one of they.
Because they usually
  get me angry,
And make me mad!!!
