    prostitutes are dying
    on corners they are not wanted...
    the Johns are not buying
    the disease infested offering of
    sex...the talk of democracy
    has a funny ring doesn't it?

    soldiers are dying...STILL...
    occupying lands where they are not
    wanted...trying to sell freedom
    in a red, white, and blue nickel bag
    ...there is freedom in consentual sex
    when both parties agree to be
    pleasured...

    but when one party has not agreed
    to intercourse it's called rape...and the
    people fight...

    soldier take inner courses plotted by
    DC planted politicians and Commanders
    in Chief, among people that despise theier
    very existence...

    "Man, the visual propaganda of soldiers
    toppling statues and low domestic body
    counts got ya'll counting down days to
    a "terror free" society"


    car bombs and ambushes
    suicide bombers and

    "...ring the alarm the war has
    started OOooh O"


    pompous western christians
    devile the islam religion and stay quiet
    when crooked politrickcians
    use ploys to set up wanna be war time heroes

    who just wanted to go to school
    when they enlisted...now they walk
    in the quest for lower domesstic gas prices
    and the way home...

    with targets on their heads
    while oil men sit in white houses
    with iraqi black gold seeping out their pockets
    and profits are made on the blood
    of patriotic poor people...

    dying
    while
    standing on
    the corner
    trying to protect
    demo(n)cracy's sexy as(s)

    for 10 dollars
    a hit.
