It has to get worse before it gets better



Watts warned us fifty years ago and clearly was clever.

He said, "It has to get worse before it gets better."


Yet you're still pushing numbers, focused on the end, on the earn.

Never in the present, your mind racing with concern.

Life is serious, so you miss the point, day in and day out.

Keep it up, so hopefully, soon you will SHOUT!

You'll see it's a scam, it'a a sham, it's a joke.

Life's not supposed to be a drag, have a drag, have a toke.

This life is a choice and far from a curse.

So if it's bad enough now, does it have to get worse?
