9/11 and Counting

9/11 and Counting

Because

We have the need

To look like heroes

Because

We have so many

Well oiled friends

Because

We're somewhat

Oily our selves

And because

We are

Selectively blind,

9/11 exploded

Shattering

Our delicate

Thin skinned

Power balloon

And castrating

Our twin

Phallic symbols

That'd injected

Themselves into

The economic arms

Of this country

Causing our current

currency crisis

Our CEOs concluded,

Well, what now?

Suspect everybody!

But just blame those

That you don't like.

Then you too

Can look like a hero

And get as oily

As you like.
