I would say "busts" sounds like a sour note and should be "bursts." Also maybe "drifting" should be "drifts." If it were my sentiment, I would drop the adjective "far" as overstating and hence weakening the point -- the same with the words "irresponsible" and "groaning."
A remark about the use of "busts" here -- I like it as a way of strengthening the emotion and if the intent were ironic it would be perfect. To get respect though it fails.
