Table is Optional, War is not

Table is Optional, War is not

All options are on the table
The shills are out in force again
Whipping up hatred and fear
to bomb another nation, oh dear!

Our leaders trip over each other
Raring to bend over, for a foreign power
The day is not too far
to hear the drums for another war.

Mothers, hide your sons!
They will come for them again
Glory and pride, they’ll offer in exchange
to ease your loss and enduring pain.
