I AM EMPIRE


For our children's sake
War is what we make
To live in peace not need
None conquered can be freed
Pandora's case has been replaced
But it contents still must be faced
We raise our youth to tain us well
Empire's most powerful spell
Our Minotaur is satisfied
For which 10 million children died
Our talons, men who dictate our will
Our wingspan, how we kill
Our beak, how we take
Our eyes, why we rape
Our order is the chaos we cause
Disease rife blankets we call laws
We soar in the heavens to masquerade gods
Devour those who claim we're frauds
Feed their stories to the fire
That is the light of our holy empire
How could we be anything but great
We see it in our victims' hate
To spread our gospel we'll never tire
For God's declared, 'I AM EMPIRE'

Just Home and Love! the words are small
Four little letters unto each;
And yet you will not find in all
The wide and gracious range of speech
Two more so tenderly complete:
