Here's a poem written by a Gainesville, Fla, man about the gulf war: NO BLOOD FOR OIL It's all about how money's spent Freedom is irrelevant A word used as an instrument To motivate the innocent Bush and Hussein in corners coil While children are taught to be loyal To slogans, symbols and to soil They're tricked to trade their blood for oil NO BLOOD FOR OIL NO BLOOD FOR OIL We saw them slaughtered in Beijing Reagan and Bush said not a thing To human rights they did not cling Because no profit would it bring So typical of the right wing Now listen to the song they sing "Naked aggression" they say why 10,000 missions the boys fly But not a plane took to the air When thousands shot in Tiananmen Square We're tricked to trade our blood for oil NO BLOOD FOR OIL NO BLOOD FOR OIL Kuwait you're gonna liberate The honesty of Contra-gate While homeless cannot beg a plate Research for AIDS will have to wait Condemn the blacks to ghetto state Forgive the rich loans they create Let's "kick some ass" from swivel chair More young will die but who will care? Just hail them "heroes" mouth a prayer And bury them with flag and flair But who will profit from their toil They're tricked to trade our blood for oil NO BLOOD FOR OIL NO BLOOD FOR OIL There's one thing more I have to say Are any rich kids sent away? They're put in schools to drink and play To keep them out of horror's way "Support our troops" they write on vans Too costly for the common man But words are cheap like desert sand Hussein and Bush possess one mind For Texas tea they kill their kind The struggle is for currency Not "jihad" or "democracy" These words they use dupliciously A trick to trade our blood for oil NO BLOOD FOR OIL NO BLOOD FOR OIL - Matt Kulmacz
