the downward path

i

what is christmas
without spirit?

a flag without
stars?

an oath with nothing
to believe in?

this is no place for
sensitivity

we’re on the
downward path.

ii

it’s time to loose the
nukes, my boys, &
kill ‘em while we
can.

the world is ours, we’re
here to stay & want you
all to know it.

we’re #1, that’s how it
is. what’s good on
this earth is us.

the poor may protest, the
smart may scheme, but it
doesn’t matter a
damn.

the heathens may run. the
bogeys may hide, but
we’ll hunt ‘em down
& smash ‘em.

we’ll round ‘em up
& lock ‘em away. that’s
what a prison’s for.

we’re on the
downward path.

iii

what is a war
without reason?

why is a death
without cause?

when is homicide
justified?

how will this
nightmare end?

iv

the body counts are
rising, the enemy is
through.

we’ll crush that
fiend Saddam Hussein
& turn him into
stew.

the UN is no ally,
we’ve overpaid our
dues.

we’ll shut it up &
dump it, with
western europe too.

we’re on the
downward path.

v

what is a mind
without memory?

a country without
conscience?

a war without
purpose?

a world without
peace?

vi

we need no
allies. no laws
can bind us.

there is no force we
cannot overcome.

we have the
brains. we’ve worked out all
the scenarios.

we have the power.

we are invincible.

on the downward path.

vii

one false move &
the world ends.

one false move &
the world ends.

viii

the stars gaze
distantly
down.
