 god gotta shotgun
Copyright 2008 by Ewuare X. Osayande

god gotta shotgun
mowing down wolves & the caribou
riding high in his holycopter
paid for by
earmarks that've been blessed by the 700 club

all praises due
to the ones who brought you
abstinence-only education
on their way to a shotgun wedding
endorsed by the nra

vp in the image of aphrodite
spawned from the mind of mccain
the new face of patriarchy
hoodwinking at hockey-moms and joe six-packs
as she takes the ax to roe v.wade
reading last rites to women's rights

who has the power?
he-man and she-ra
masters of the universe
multi-millionaire coldwarmongers
singing paul revere the remix
"the russians are coming"
"the russians are coming"

mccain as "rambo pt. 6:
the original maverick"
crying "country first"
white nationalism reprise
re-birth of a nation
here comes the calvary
riding in robes of white skin
sacrificing their sons & daughters
on the altar of a lie
brandishing the red, white & blue
as gang colors
initiating immigrants with
"pledge allegiance to the flag
or die!"

Indeed. A different face on the same machine.

It has been very interesting to observe the Obama phenomena, and the great symbolism that is infused and referenced upon this president elect. Much expectation for him to be whatever the symbol represents in the populist mind.
