Saving the World

While you were out saving the world
I made up a to-do list.
I'm glad that your flag is unfurled,
But there's places your presence is missed.
They'll be needing it still though your candidate wins,
And if you could save this whole world from its sins.
The trash would still be here: it's filled up the bins
While you were out saving the world.

Since you've been out saving the world
You've put all your old friends in a bind:
To bend as your own life is curled
Or you'll leave them still further behind.
For if truly such danger's about in the air
They'd be blind to ignore it and fools not to care.
They still love you, although their concern is not there --
But you were out saving the world.
