The “Good Guys”

We kill innocent children with drones
We destroy their families and their homes
We bomb other countries that never invaded us
We murder and kill, so why all the fuss?
We’re the “good guys”

We ally with dictators who chop off heads
We are their partners, in making people dead
We consort with evil and spread it around
We are its allies and mass bombings abounds
But hey, we’re the “good guys”

We finance and train terrorists, we say, “we oppose”
We play this deadly game while helping our foes
We are “respectable” hypocrites, and have the power
We really are gangsters but an “honourable” shower
 Still, we’re “the good guys”

We are the “leaders” who rule the masses
We peddle bullsh-t and are dangerous asses
We are the “warriors” that never fight in battle
We send the serfs, who obey like dumb cattle
But, we’re the “good guys”

We perform and parade on the world stage
We really should be in handcuffs and locked in a cage
We are dictators and despots and “statesmen” too
We all would look “impressive” in an animal zoo
Because we’re the “good guys”

We “bring democracy” and have a “responsibility to protect”
We bomb and blitz countries with hellish effect
We form coalitions with other war criminals
We devilishly succeed in making many countries unliveable
But, hey we’re the “good guys”

We spout words like “rule of law” and “democracy”
We are creative liars, and market and sell hypocrisy
We speak about “freedom” and “human rights”
We are bloody hypocrites whose forte is to incite
Hey, we’re the “good guys”

We are running amok and nothing will stop us
We are a deadly disease and we are filled with pus
We are Satan’s helpers and fiends from hell
We will eventually contribute to the Earth’s farewell
So goodbye: We are the “good guys”
