    Our money is earned and sent away –

    There isn’t any red tape

    When a government official

    Wants a $300,000 honeymoon.


    Do they ever think

    (while spending every last penny of my mother’s income)

    That a war with no morality

    Is not a respectable investment?


    There is enough money in the sun

    Millions, billions of times over

    To power your houses, your cities, your nations –

    But I’m not turning down my A/C.


    When looking up to the bright spots of fire

    Just isn’t enough.

    Star gazing isn’t a $50 backyard sport anymore,

    It’s an industry!


    But who cares about Africa,

    Where a child sits calmly

    With a gut

    The size of a basketball.
