In Dependence Of Mass Destruction And Mass Production.

You were a petulant child
When you cut your mother's apron strings
On July 4th.
Free at last
To carve your way
To riches and glory
Through native lands
Yanking God's bells
With chains of black men:
Mass production
And mass destruction.

Now look at you

Free to bear arms and kill
In your own country
Or any other of your choosing.
Free to ignore the United Nations
And global warming.
Free to consume
Forty percent of the world's resources.
Free trade peddlers behind protectionist doors.

A brotherhood of multinationals
And arms dealers touting WOMADS
And more rounds of ammunition
Than there are human beings
Per Annum.

You have so many kinds
And not so kinds.

Now look at you.

In dependence
On oil
Laws and Lawyers (Oh how you value liberty)
Nuclear weapons for security
Nuclear electricity
Current deficits and alien immigrantry.

WAKE UP America.
Smell the thermonuclear coffee.
Get off your LAZY burger buns
And show the world
THINK. Mass action.

the hell is WOMADS ??
but hey easy for you
to say off in the land of gandalf
we gotta live here and it aint easy being
the greatest country in the world everybody
wants to take a shot at the champ it's all
we can do to keep the rest of you in line
and on the right path sometimes freedom
and democracy needs a good kick in the pants
from an F16 know what i mean ??
and it leaves precious little for the kiddos
down the street and besides all that ever
try to loosen the winos grip on his bottle of
cheap booze ?? stay out of range of that wicked
left hook is a good trick to remember and let
him drink one day he'll pass out and let go
more than one way to watch it unfold

WOMAD weapon of mass destruction.
Bill Clinton is loved when he walks the streets here. George would probably have to stay in his car. I know that its easy to take shots at America, but we realise Americans are not the same as American foreign policy - however we can't vote in your elections. Why do so few Americans vote?
Eternal Vigilance is the Price of Liberty and all that.
Or how about “The ignorance of one voter in a democracy impairs the security of all.” -- John F. Kennedy, 1963
Thanks for your reply Rohn.

a phalanx of suvs armed with
9 mm laser canons
a couple a guys
from the matrix some F16s
bradley fighting vehicles
18 or 20 apache attack helicopters
not to mention those wild ass
womads circling overhead from
the death star

You're right Glenn..."The only thing required for evil to prevail is for one good man to do nothing." hmmm. Said by somebody with a better memory than I!

John Dean's book Conservatives without Conscience exposes just how deviously radical this movement means to be. I try to believe that for every action . . so that the reaction will be worth the aggravation.
