Clemens is on trial for “juice”
Edwards for campaign abuse
But Cheney and W
Reduced Iraq to rubble who
Lied just to do it – are loose
Bradley Manning told all of us facts
The Pentagon’s political hacks
Don’t want us to know
So now he must go
On trial for his heroic acts
One hundred sixty thousand are dead
By George Bush’ hand, Cheney’s head
Yet they walk around free
In our “democracy”
Where the rich run what’s done and what’s said
Julian Assange with some verve
Threw the militant warhawks a curve
When he used Wikileaks
To bust the Pentagon freaks
Imagine; the truth –what a nerve!
So tell me again – what’s obscene?
I need to be clear what this means
Why’s a war where kids die
That’s based on a lie
Just a matter of ho-hum routine
And a blowjob is really the sin
Not the bloodbath Dick and Bush got us in
I’m really perplexed
Values voters think sex
Is dirty – but war’s never been
So tell me again –what’s obscene?
What’s dirty and what the hell’s clean
Why pornography’s vile
But we wave flags and smile
When we bomb and send in the Marine’s
And is it okay that the blood
Of the dead in the dust and the mud
Be washed from the hands
Of the liars who scammed
Us by claiming Iraqis had Scuds
And Cheney and Bush who’re to blame
For all this death walk unashamed
While John, Rog, and Brad
Not only break bad
But may enter some prison in chains
So I ask once again what’s obscene
What is filth, what is dirt, what’s unclean?
A ballplayer’s on trial
While the vilest of vile
Live in high style on our TV screen
So let me ask just one more time
Is this now the new paradigm?
Do we now let real villains
Who did some real killin’
Go free for this most heinous crime?
Yes, Bush and Dick are who I mean
One stupid, one slick, both obscene
