A new paradigm for a post-imperial world

We should know by now that NATO kills

We should know by now that NATO kills

Cailean Bochanan

We should know by now that NATO kills

Killing in Serbia and Iraq

In Afghanistan the plan of attack

Bombing weddings in the hills

We should know by now that NATO kills

Taking away the child’s breath

In tribute to the cult of death

Is this really what God wills?

We should know by now that NATO kills

What is it?What is this beast

That amidst the carnage comes to feast

as in its bloody trough it swills?

We should know by now that NATO kills

The image of Obama smirking there

Reminding me of Tony Blair

With deep disgust my soul it fills

We should know by now that NATO kills

Ever there the news to manage

Telling us of collateral damage

Their army of despicable, lying shills

We should know by now that NATO kills

What exotic locations to destroy!

What wonderful weapons to deploy!

Is this how they get their thrills?

We should know by now that NATO kills

What kind of mind could spawn

Weapons meant to kill the unborn

And the marrow of my bones chills

We should know by now that NATO kills

So now the moment to end its reign

To be subject never again

To all its crimes and attendant ills

We should know by now that NATO kills
