Declaration of Intervention

I am from the super power
And the document of flex
Which stirs your heart with writing
On truth and freedom’s quest

I pay the oligarchy
to train their military
Who police the peasantry
For my profitability

They take charge of everything
Deciding what you grow
Dismissing you when you’re not needed
Hunting you if you won’t go

I am from the superpower
With inefficient splendor
Your labor feeds my people
So I’m your biggest lender

I am quite determined
I’ll kill you for your oil
If Uncle Ho’s your Washington
I’ll bomb you where you toil

I’m a bastard son
This land and culture raped
Fathers the moral idiots
The ruling class
And race

Our document’s heart
Is but a front
Righteous words of revolution
We only recall their meaning
If you make the contribution

I am from the superpower
With a deadly constitution
I force it on my neighbor to
Stem his evolution

With Cape on shoulders,
Flag on my chests
With the CIA and AID
The markets I run best

I’ll burn your house
To catch a mouse
Who served as my connection
I invade in dead of night to
Fix a false election

I am from the superpower
Your poor fulfill my dreams
Advisors come a ‘calling
But it’s never what it seems

With cash in hand
And gun in cloak
I offer no confessions

I break the law
And run your land
And you’ll make all concessions

I have the UN sanction
I’m the tail that wags the dog
From the land of glass and metal
Radiation, smog

I’ll protect your kingdom
I’ll send begotten sons
They forget the lesson
The revolution’s done

I am from America
Dropper of the bomb
For lust-cult
And legal tender

I sing an empty song

New York, 1991
