America, Gun Salutes, Gold Medals etc
The Americans sent five million Viets to collective hell
They have also sent two million Afghans to heaven
We know the figures, the facts and figures
How many All India Radio stations are in India;
How many inches the global warming is increasing the sea level;
How many North Koreans are crossing into South Korea,
How many Jamaicans are becoming Americans each year.
But the numbers are uncertain
How many people have the armies made them martyrs;
How many patriots have prompted police promotion.
How many gun salutes and gold medals do we need more?
We need no number
We need, in this weather, just more beers.
