well my interpretation ;)

Leader Speak

This is the poverty you must live by
So we personally may remain rich.

And we have held this view ever since
We adopted those boxes with the frogs-
The green backs with the spawn.
And we mean this from the heart of our bottoms
As we stand before you
Which we wish that we could moon at you
And be done with it!

But we can't
So we don't
But we want to.

Also when we offer you the Earth
With the dead smile we mean
Keep going slaves...

We expect it.

Oh, I believe that we've been mooned. We've even been farted upon.

When I was young and idealistic (and naive) I would have said this is cynical . . . I haven't thought that in a very very long time. Our elections will be in November here, and this will be the first one in which I will not vote, truly having no choice I can live with making, which is also a choice of course. Damned if you do, damned if you don't.
