Like so many other cities
Your name also went down in history
For stopping hearts and ending lives
“It’s not guns, don’t be melodramatic
It’s mental health and video games“
Hmm, maybe you are right
If so, I apologize
So should we tackle the problem of mental health?
“Wo wo wo, healthcare is so very costly
Who will pay for it?
Debt is in trillions! Do you even fathom that, you minion?“
Hmm, so what about video games?
We can surely make that a difference.
“Wo wo wo, who are you? a socialist?
Profits dictate our country, which’s capitalist.”
Hmm, then what we do is nothing and let people be killed?!
“Now we are talking, you see, everything is already fixed.“
