Someone call

 911,

  render assistance,

   we’ve lost our respect

    for life.

     Killing sprees are now

      in vogue,

       ethnic cleansing

        is business as usual.

         We need a Charlotte

 to make a web,

  spell it out for us,

   help us see the writing

    in silk.

     Draw attention to

      the hand basket we’re in

       shootin’ the rapids

        to our demise.

Zuckerman’s famous pig

 should be our example.

  We need such radiant friends.

   Charlotte, give us a

sign!
