The Money Men
by Rebecca Lawton

We are in Iraq
Because the war coffers must not run dry
There must be enemies
So there can be arms deals
There must be war
For the money men to continue to be
The money men

We are not there to win
There can be no winning a "war on terrorism"
Especially not
When we are the terrorists
But, there must be war
For the money men to continue to be
The money men

If not in Iraq, then Iran
If not in Iran, then Korea
If not in Korea, then Lebanon
If not in Lebanon, then .... (fill in the blank)
The MOST important thing to remember is
There must be war
For the money men to continue to be
The money men
