no love for this our country

but somehow we managed a war

without need or gallantry

but somehow we've seen this before

parading our wealth with pageantry

but somehow we still can ignore

the rime of life's poetry

but somehow we writhe in it more

what lies with our bigotry

but somehow we manage to score

bored with usual harlotry

but somehow we learn to abhor
