Banana Clips for Heaven

Banana Clips for Heaven

From the streets of Chicago

to rural Newtown,

Denver to Houston

and all between,

the vengeance of mad women

torn old men and brainless boys

kill and fools ask why?

We call our wars just,

to Iraqi children and their mothers,

Afghanistan babies seek grace in Allah.

We brag about our God

as we rattle our sabers and scream hallelujah

vengeance belongs to America

sayeth the Lord and his children.

If a god exists

he has turned his back

to ignorance,

loveless murderers

hiding behind bullet proof

excuses and lies

singing, “give me another clip.”
