Propagandhi - Name And Address Withheldrate me
The following views expressed do not necessarily reflect
those of the prevailing order,
who prostrate to their naked kings,
tailor the seams of funeral shrouds on foreign shores,
but shed no tears for the dead of the endless list
of informal wars â?? the justification for will be
spelled out coming soon to a screen near you.
I'm feeling less hopeful and so much less human as
my days are reduced to little more than settling for
revenge and wondering whatever happened to the kid
that pledged â??first do no harmâ?
&#65533;? Chalk it up to an overdeveloped sense of unbridled
vengeance. Somebody fed me too much New Hope for breakfast,
'cause as the empire preemptively strikes back
(again) and the voice of Luke's father baritones this
is CNN I recall Arab kids slaughtered reduced to sand-niggers
and rag-heads. And now I'm expected to mourn dead Americans?
The executioner's willing citizens?
I'm so sorry and I'm trying to think it through,
but when the chickens came home to roost and hand-delivered
matching funeral urns to the bully that never learns
I could've swore I heard a chorus rise and fall wishing
them so many more unhappy returns.
But in every war waged, only kings emerged unscathed.
