Third-World Politics


Is it wrong to wish for the death of a wicked man?
One who takes wealth from poverty stricken hands,
Because he knows the laws of supply and demand
Manipulating distribution for a sense of scarcity to withstand

How about one who occupies foreign land
Stealing resources from local food stands
So they can sell it from United Fruit's brand
Plenty profit, but give denizens a penny for every grand

If they feel they need justice, let them take chance
The time will come to see who's weapons are more advanced
Wont hesitate to kill because this is a skill we've enhanced
Been here too many times before, we've mastered this devilish dance

You would think the decisions are made by corporals with no lance
But the sad reality is that corporate head's write the plans
Millions murdered, yet we still name no culprit to the offense
Leaving the victims to somehow cope with the sense
