"The Masses Are Asses" as written by Donita Sparks and Suzi Gardner....
I still get angry
I still get sad
And the losers still drive me mad
And I wonder

If I have anything to say anymore
Oh yeah I wonder if i have anything to say
Except the masses are asses
They're all asses

Things still piss me off
And things still make me cry
Poetry's in motion but not in mind
Poetry's in motion but not in my mind
Poetic justice will come in time

And I just have to laugh
I just have to laugh
Because the masses are asses
We're all asses

Masses are asses every day
Masses are asses in every way
Woo woo

    General CommentI think most of the song is self-explanatory except for this:

    "Poetry's in motion, not in mind
    Poetry's in motion but not in my mind
    Poetic justice will come in time"

    For the third line of that, you need to know the definition of poetic justice (an outcome in which vice is punished and virtue rewarded usually in a manner peculiarly or ironically appropriate). The masses (a.k.a. the asses) will be punished eventually and probably in a way that is ironically appropriate. The way they've been asses will come back to get them. The minority of people who aren't asses will be rewarded (maybe). Seeing the masses punished might be reward enough.

    I'm less sure what the first two lines mean. Maybe people aren't thinking about poetry including her. People might not be thinking about it because the masses of them are asses. She might not be thinking about poetry because she's preoccupied with how the masses are asses. But even though people aren't thinking about poetry, it's still in motion, it's still happening. One definition of poetry is this: "something likened to poetry especially in beauty of expression." So maybe it's saying that things are being beautifully expressed, but people are too busy being asses or dealing with asses to notice them, and even if they do notice them, they aren't really thinking about them.

    General CommentIsn't this a swipe at certain types of fans and their choices in music? By extension a criticism consumer habits.
