Another child dies in Palestine,
while we sit and drink some wine.
How could we be so cold
with all the shit that we uphold?
What the Jews are doing ain’t right.
And this should be our fight.
We wouldn’t like an occupation.
And Israel has no justification,
for what it’s doing to the Gaza Strip
with our leaders in partnership.
When evil reigns supreme,
all is not as it might seem.
Israel is wrong and that’s a fact.
The Palestinians are under attack.
It’s Israel over them,
but Israel ain’t no gem.
They scream, “The Holocaust!”
But look who’s paying the cost.

What are we doing to each other? What is the matter with us? How can we even stand to look at ourselves? Many of us are an abomination and THAT is a fact! Screw this goddamn shit! I’m calling it like I see it! I saw pictures that brought tears to my eyes of innocent Palestinian children being carried in the arms of their loved ones, to be buried. And the American ‘leaders’ are a willing party to the murdering of these children and without an ounce of concern for them.
…and here I was all bent out of shape and cussing up a blue streak about some basketball and NAACP bull when innocence is dying and we don’t even care because we’re so full of ourselves. It’s ALL about me, me, me. I don’t look to the East and wonder. I don’t look to the East with concern, but I should. But you see, we’re Americans and we’re just SO goddamn ‘exceptional’ and all that we just reek with it! We’re some stinking shits and yeah, I’m not the only one stinking here! But it still don’t make my stinking any less for stinking alongside of you! How about we try putting someone else and what’s going horribly wrong with them, first? Yeah, I know! Another pipe dream of mine because we’re just too busy stinking with ‘American exceptionalism’!
