  Details   DMCA

Somewhere in Wash-town there's a room filled with smoke,

Where adults sit around and make doom a joke.

They argue, debate and work out the next years,

Schedule some wars and gun-victim tears,

Plan to squeeze Russia and twist China's nose,

And lead John Q. Public to smell the right rose.


And up until now things have gone pretty well:

Governments in debt and under banks' spell,

Armies competing and boosting arms sales,

Unemployed crowds who don't question tales

From well-combed poseurs who tell them the news,

Never quite adding that these are just views.
