Vetting Washington

by Delahay

You can tell they're lying
Their lips are a moving
You thought you were blue
But that's just from the bruising
Better be careful when
You go do your choosing
Seems like the truth
Will be their undoing

They always say Jesus
When looking at Mary
They gave her more names
Than she could carry
Wild like a witch
Floats like a fairy
Marching in lockstep
Just like the Jerries

Which train will you take
When you get to the station
Do you know which car
You will ride to damnation
Are you ready to work
On a new brand's plantation
Where they're burning books
For a new education

You can't say you weren't warned
When you look in the mirror
It's a treacherous triumph
You should be in fear of
The day's getting nearer
While you bathe in the lies
Of your new hero

Remember how and why
Our country came to be
Genocide and slavery
It was taken for free
A country so proud
Of its treachery
The warlords of wealth
Made the right people bleed

You can say what you think
And think what you say
Great-grandfather was Pima
Fought for our USA
How many have heard
Of his name, Ira Hays
And from a tribe that is one
They've call "civilized"
Grandmother did come
Where are they these days
