a public service message

a military occupation
is a prison-minded expedition
in the interest of freedom

this is not a contradiction
in terms

the beneficiaries of our program
quickly learn

to eat under the muzzle of a gun
to sleep under the muzzle of a gun

to love
our friendly fire

forgive us the blood
of your mothers, fathers, sons,
daughters, sisters, brother & friends
or relations

please disregard all missing days,
weeks or years of lost
opportunity
& all accidental & collateral
damage

for which, of course,
we are not responsible

we’re amerika
& we’re here to make you
free!
