Golf Course Berlin


Make a fortress of the golf course
With eighteen feet high walls
And at each corner towers build
Send Dobermans abroad!

Oh razor-wire the sixteenth hole
And booby-trap the green
Turn bunkers into bunkers
String claymores in-between

Lay mines about the fairways
Dig trenches round the course
Machine-gun mounted golf carts
For the Quick Reaction Force

“And we can send the kids to school
In columns 4X4
They’ll think it fun the U.N. run
A school-run corridor”

Blue helmeted the escorts
Reminders of Berlin
All this to keep the riff-raff out
Or the other fuckers in

Bright stars, yellow stars, flashing through the air,
Are you errant strands of Lady Mary's hair?
