Coke, Drugs, Pickup Trucks & War


Despite the torture
horrors
Americans
by half
say CIA
cruelty is
justified

How could
that be a surprise?
We are a war
addicted nation
our economy
runs off
blood money
the signs
are everywhere

We are proud
to plant flags
(made in China)
in cemeteries
honoring
those formerly
jobless
working class
servants
who
'sacrificed'
their lives
on behalf
of
Mr. Big

We uncritically
salute the flag
Hitler would
have been
impressed
by how
our 'blitzkrieg'
has seeped
deeper into
our culture
than
'Sieg Heil'
did into his

We are
arrogant
we fabricate
embellish
lie
and then
deny it all
before god
and the
devil

We've been
trained
like rats
to take
the cheese

It's time
to spit out
the poison
that eats
away at
our souls
