Krieg Dem Kriege (War Against War) : - Poem by Chris Leermakers

KRIEG DEM KRIEGE (WAR AGAINST WAR) :

SOME DOCTORS ON A RAMPAGE
READY TO WAGE WAR
THEY'RE ALL LIKE ONE GREAT BIG SAVAGE
WAITING TO EAT US RAW
THEY CAN'T EVEN WAIT UNTIL WE'RE COOKED
THEY WANT US TO THINK THEY ARE CIVILIZED
HUH, WHAT A JOKE, THEY'RE ALL JUST PLAIN HOOKED
ON SOME DRUG WHICH HELPS THEM TERRORIZE
WHAT'S LURKING AROUND THE CORNER
A DOCTOR, A PHYSIO, YEAH ANY
AT ALL WITH PREY IN SIGHT
THE POOR, HELPLESS PATIENT
WANTS TO, BUT CAN'T MOVE LIKE THE LIGHT

THE HOSPITAL
WHERE THEY FATTEN THEIR LIVESTOCK
US POOR PATIENTS DESPERATELY WANT A RIOT
TO ESCAPE THEIR OMINOUS DIET
WE ARE ALL FRIGHTENED TO DEATH
THEY ALL THINK IT'S A FUNNY FARM, WHAT A SIN
IT'S JUST ONE BIG LAUGH AFTER ANOTHER
TO THEM, THE ONLY MEDICINE
LET'S FOR JUST ONE MINUTE, REVERSE THE ROLES
AND OUR THERAPY IS QUICKER AND WOULD PROVE
THAT AT SIX FEET UNDER POT HOLES
THEY WOULD FIND
IT A TOUCH HARDER TO MOVE…
