Inauguration of These Lands

Inauguration of These Lands
I HAVE NOT SIGNED A TREATY
WITH THE U. S. GOVERNMENT


nor has my father nor his father
nor any grandmothers
We don't recognize these names on old sorry paper
Therefore we declare the United States a crazy person
nightmare lousy food ugly clothes bad meat
nobody we know
No one wants to go there This U.S. is theory illusion
terrible ceremony The United States can't dance can't cook
has no children no elders no relatives
They build funny houses no one lives in
Everything the United States does to everybody is bad
No this U.S. is not a good idea We declare you terminated
You've had your fun now go home we're tired We signed
no treaty WHAT are you still doing here Go somewhere else &
build a McDonald's We're going to tear all this ugly mess
down now We revoke your immigration papers
your assimilation soap suds your stories are no good
your colors hurt our feet our eyes are sore
our bellies are tied in sour knots Go Away Now
