Jesus With a Banana Clip

From the streets of Chicago,

to rural Newtown.

Denver to Houston

and all in between,

the vengeance of mad women,

torn old men and brainless boys

kill and why I ask?

We call our wars just

to Iraqi children and their mothers

Afghanistan babies seek grace in Allah

we brag about our God

as we rattle our sabers and scream hallelujah.

Vengeance belongs to America,

sayeth the Lord and his children.

If a god there be,

he has turned his back

to the ignorance.

The loveless murderers,

hiding behind bullet proof

excuses and lies

singing give me another clip.
