All Hail, GITMO


I'm writing this sh! # like a Greek myth

But I'm not taking it as far as the Sith

Bringing it to the now and land giving Law Giver

Watch the wheat fields whither

Make a serpent zombie to watch Life slither

See within the maze of the Empire

The ancient passages still lit with fire

We can hide it as best we can

The abomination of our land

The Debt for which our children stand

Trapped in the labyrinth of our making

Someone's children are destined for Taking

A Law Giver tells us what needs breaking

Vietnam saw youth was meant for forsaking

And into our bellows we sent our young men

The Minotaur will devour all he can

And spit their bone and blood on his hooved feet

He will dance for joy and quake the streets

He will rape rhythm and smoother beats

The spawn of our orgy with Rome and Crete

Their Minotaur was nameless to know

Our's we loving hail 'Gitmo'

Most sacred cite Guantanamo Bay

The Arch in which our Empire lay

It is very nice to think
The world is full of meat and drink,
With little children saying grace
In every Christian kind of place.... Read complete »
