THE CAR CULTURE


Mr. Big loves cars
especially the financing
the oil is a nice
additional
addiction
to the wallet

We were taught
to carry our wallet,
like bearing the cross
around our necks,
a public
acknowledgement
of our servitude

we are all on this sinking
ship together

Obama says to Africa

"Coca-Cola will help provide clean water, General Electric will assist with infrastructure development, and Marriott will build more hotels."

Look the hell out
Africa!
Mr. Big
is coming to town
tonight

You gonna get,
like India got,
cars and wallets
financing is nice

from the west
to the east
Mr. Big
loves them all

Just don't object
or you get
drilled
shelled
locked down
the hard way

Go along
and you'll suffer less
bullies always get
their way

Obama is a
damn pig
working for the man
dancing and smiling
his way along


Some fear telling the truth
about the man of
African descent
who sells out black, brown
and white folks
in the land of the free
and home of the brave

Look out Africa
Obama wants to
bring you
the car culture
and slavery,
slavery with a smile,
it's all Hollywood now
everyone's an actor

I read that China's putting in 15-lane highways in Africa. Apparently they're investing there but without the same kind of provisos the Western investors make?

But, for sure, I hope they can defend themselves against the proposed developments the capitalists are after.
