Who cares if we’re a superpower
If that means that we get to kill
All those not in our ivory tower
Atop our city on the hill?
It started off with independence
And ended with us as defendants
Who parcel out electric shocks
To who sits in the jury box.
What profits us to go flag-waving
And say it stands for equal rights
When we distribute human blights?
Yet don’t believe we’re misbehaving
When we elect us pols who tend
To treat the world as “as man’s best friend.”
