Them people say it’s peacetime

Say we ain’t got no fear

So why build up the military?

The wife, she says, “My dear…”

 

“If this ain’t wartime

I don’t know what is –

Wars on religion

Wars on ethnicity

Wars on sexuality

Wars on gender

Wars on thinking

Wars on guns

Wars on WMD’s

Wars on prejudice

Wars on freedom

Wars on tyranny

Wars on corporation

Wars on democracy

Wars on war

Wars on peace

Wars on me and

Wars on you.”

 

Flicking on the news tonight

Man dressed in his suit

Telling me it’s peacetime –

Well, I think his point is mute.
