America is on fire

America is on Fire

                                  Fire

coming soon to your local

town or municipality

America is on Fire

Police acting like they are all Wyatt Earp

and have just been appointed

Sheriff of Tombstone

orders to clean it up

by whatever means necessary

      whatever means necessary

America is on Fire

with Police using discarded Military weapons

using discarded military ideas

using discarded military men and wimmen

the new Militsiya of Amerika

America is on Fire

not black vs white

but blue vs black

blue vs white

blue vs us

America is on fire

it doesn’t need to be this way

be this way

but until you get a new Sheriff in the oval

who’s not from the one party system

our one party system

Did you really think

it’s only NFL Players

talkin’ ’bout change

Did you really think

people aren’t tired of

all the dying

Did you really think

only our Politburo could think
