No arms they sell will keep us any safer
No uniform can make me salute any harder
Your flag stands in for bad ideas on paper
Your love of country has emptied our larder

Ain't no ardor for your next can't-lose caper
Your love of order seems like so much ordure
Ain't no wine enough to wash away your wafer
Because the last line you crossed was a border

When will is work, we fight sadness with action
Amuse ourselves with new toys and old laughter
Leave nothing to chance, not even satisfaction
We'll slit its throat so we can gut and hoist it after
