Tourism

It’s just another poor country starved by Washington and Wall Street
Go there and bless them with Imperial dollars
Buy their quaint local goods and place them as trophies on your mantle
Pity their street children as they scramble

Welcome to another neocolony, it’s just like all the others
Tourist cities built up for the local elite to gorge themselves
The rest starve and are allowed to compete “freely” with American subsidized goods
Do your liberal duty and bless them with your white face

Say hello to the American military base if you ever get off the beaten path
Which you won’t, you’re very well behaved
Your behavior rewards you with whatever the Empire can spare
They even wash the blood off the money for you

And then you gasp, you shake your fist, at Neocon excess
How could they? Your brain cell quivers in outrage
How could the Neocons abuse Americans? We’re supposed to be protected
The more they abuse us, the happier we are that they abuse them
Get them out of our hair, send them to Iraq or Iran
Bask in the warm glow of murdering with impunity

Buy their quaint local goods and place them as trophies on your mantle
