For Another 100 Years

U.S. says
is our unsinkable
aircraft carrier
our power projection
in the Asia-Pacific

Uncle Sam
tells Tokyo
build us
a new airfield
put the twin-runways
on top of
pristine Oura Bay

Fuck the coral reefs
and the last three
endangered dugongs
sea mammals
that feed there

Since Tokyo
is paying
the freight
for the airfield
Washington's hands
are clean

Tokyo can deal
with the domestic fallout
citizens in Okinawa,
all 80%
of them,
defending nature
they are
blocking the
construction gates
early every morning

tells Tokyo
bring in the police
from Japan
and drag
the people off
who have planted
their asses
at the gate

Uncle Sam
we are bringing you democracy
Why do you complain
so much?

in rebellion
since 1953,
told to
get used to it
the new runway
will be built
to last
for another
100 years
