On questions of military actions of yore

Or more presently

That Americans are asked to endure

Yet more

Taxpayer funded Shock and Awe

While millions are unemployed

And without healthcare on our shore

What is it all for?

With all of it’s death, mutilations, and gore

The American government wants us to

See it as exalted

So as for it not to be halted

That is why they implore

Just this one time more

For more war

But the particular business

Is rotten to the core

It has become a friend

To some immoral men

A place to buy and spend


A relation with

A more realistic sensation

Of that of interacting with

A whore

When things go wrong

Too easy to reach for

We claim now we must enter into it

As if it were a chore

Somehow a way to restore

Some strange nationalistic decor

Framed to restore

All that we adore

This is what our elected officials

Practically roar

Yet it is all so damned impure

And it’s undertaking only makes sure

That instead of a cure

It’s initiation tends to act

Like a fish to a lure

And like the


It will seek to endure

The answer to the question then

Is quite simple to conjure

No More War
