after working nine-to-five
and I’m here popping anti-depressants
for the suicide side effects
ready to bow out
after one too many esoteric nightmares
of collateral murder,

and party in the streets,

get high on Muslim blood
and nod as the newsman tells us what to think,
drink GMO beer, drink!
Buy a new made-in-China flag
And cheer as the bombs begin to fall again
And democracy reigns down
Leaving splintered hospital cribs
Filled with more birth-defected babies
Next to women missing limbs
