Fake Plastic Smiles 

Let us kiss and make up
Brothers in peace
Let us make these wars stop
Fonder we’ll grow in blissful ease

Let us stab the knives deeper
As the swords cut to the quick
As we laugh guilty and chipper
And inwardly glory in our sins so sick

Let us shake hands
Brothers in oneness
As we dissolve war parties and bands
And project hope in admirable rightness

Let us make our soldiers faster
And our bombs a tad more deadly
Helping the war rooms grow fatter
While our men lay waste to all and sundry

Let us know we have done ultimate good
For are we not the mad?
Yea, for war is our blessed food
A sustenance that forever must be had
