Repeat it Often Enough



Repeat it
often enough
easy to do
with corporate
dominated
media

say it
over and over
again
drum it into
thick skulls
turned to mush
by endless
info-tainment
poor schools
consumerism

Pentagon says
America's role
under corporate
globalization
is
'security export'
endless war

watch the
movie previews
see our future
here at home
the message
to the kids
war
it's 'all you can be'
keep repeating it
Captain America
to
Star Wars

Throw in some
nationalism
exceptionalism
we are #1
the big lie

Sell the wars
lie to
recruit the jobless

A Global Force
For Good

Army Strong

The Few,
The Proud

Above all

Aim High

├╝ber alles
all lies

Our minds
are occupied
by Madison Avenue
Madmen
fill our brains
with the
big lies

My Sunday prayer:
Wake up
take back
our souls

decolonize
our minds

they belong
to us
not to
the devil
or his
congressional
agents
