Four More Years - An American Tune

Four more years; all we need (Chorus)
is four more years.
Four more years of fractured words
disbelief and laughter
as Georgie's boys lead us on
to the sweet hereafter.

Afghanistan's gone up in smoke
Iraq is going down the tubes
Iran's the next to bend the knee
so Georgie's boys
can shock and awe them to be free.

Man of faith our George, they say
crusadin' all the night away.
Ossie boogies to a different tune but
Stop these guys or
we better teach their Gods to pray

War 'gainst 'tourism's' goin' strong
who gives a shit what's right or wrong
screw the world, our Georgie calls
their minds will follow
once we got 'em by the balls.

Might is right is Georgie's tune
no one's freedom is immune
We choke the air with impunity
guzzlin' all the gas
so fuck the world community.

Country Joe and the Fish, eh?

Sorry, must have missed them at Glastonbury. Did they do the main stage?

Bit of a political statement I think we have here,Zettel. Perhaps given what's happening on the other side of the pond at the moment, someone might pick this up and run with it as a rallying song.

Got a bit confused wit the scanning of what I think is the second verse. Man of faith our George, they say...etc. The metre seems to change, as does the rhyme pattern.

But your words have a nice bite to them!

All the best
