Observing Sweden 29 May 2013

In Borläng, in Sweden

One time every year

A party was held that the people held dear

It was called Peace & Love

Great music was played

All had a good time

And good money was made

But promoters weren’t happy

They wanted still more

So they went out and tried

To triple their score

But it didn’t work well

They lost all their money

And those who bought tickets

Don’t think this is funny

Cash spent for their tickets

Will not be paid back

Since the Peace & Love party

Was given the sack

Once again we are shown

That when good things succeed

They are easily ruined by people with greed.

    Sad but it’s kind of the same the world over, isn’t it?
