I updated it and tryed to make it better. I made it about politics from two points of views; people who like Reagan and Bush (Aren't much for helping poor people), and for people who want to help poor people. I am sorry if I offend anyone.

I was trying to go in a more silly direction with this. I wrote this while I was listening to Syd Barrett. It's about a Super-Hero. Yeah, I know it sounds weird, but here it is:


Never was a big fan of the suit and cape,
but the public manages to keep me awake.
Never liked to hide my indentity,
It's good for the women if you know what I mean.
Don't like to share my political views,
People might think I have a few issues.
My ideas aren't crazy and they're really okay,
It's just that the old dream is fading away
But someone's in danger, so here I am,
I'm the Interstellar Man.

My name sounds weird, and I can't fly,
Sometimes I wonder why I try.
People I meet me ask me what I can do,
I say "Get in danger and I'll show you"
I ignore some people who might get hurt,
'Cause I'm afraid I'll get some dirt on my shirt.
The rich politician says I am cool
While the people rags say I'm really cruel
I don't help people out, or give them a hand,
I'm the one who makes it hard, I'm the Money Man


Not the best I've done, but I'm also not finished.

The rymes and language weren't spectacular, but it was really entertaining. Not too many songs about super-heroes these days. I liked it.

I had to think it sounded a bit like a left-wing style poem about the United States...

I liked it though...for the most part, the above is true.
I think there are a few typoes you need to get rid of:

It's just that war tends to give me blues put 'the' in before blues

People I meet me ask me what I can do, People I meet ask me what it is I can do

Some of the rhymes were sorta weak...not really rhymes unless you stretched them...some of it was plain stupid. I realize you were going for silly, but be careful.

Entertaining though, comment on one of the ones in my sig please...
