Reply to The Creature by ziq

There is a creature. It has to feed.

It stops at nothing to fill its need.

The people live in gruesome squalor,

So that the creature may grow taller.

Those with nothing have to bleed,

To help the creature spread its seed.

They learn to dine on fecal matter,

So that the creature may grow fatter.

The creature tells of evil gnomes,

Coming to destroy our homes.

And trolls who come with gun and knife,

To threaten our way of life.

The creature has enslaved our town,

But no one thinks to bring it down.

Provided with so much distraction,

The people can't be moved to action.

And when the people are all dead,

Still the creature needs its bread.

When we've been sucked completely dry,

The creature needs its food supply

(a parasite cannot survive unless its host remains alive.)

It has amassed such awesome wealth,

Maybe it can eat itself.

excerpt from the lyrics:

The idea concerns the fact that this country wants nostalgia They want to go back as far as they can ... Even if it's only as far as last week Not to face now or tomorrow, but to face backwards

And yesterday was the day of our cinema heroes Riding to the rescue at the last possible moment The day of the man in the white hat or the man on the white horse Or, the man who always came to save America at the last moment Someone always came to save America at the last moment Especially in "B" movies

And when America found itself having a hard time ... Facing the future, they looked for people like John Wayne But since John Wayne was no longer available, they settled for Ronald the Ray-Gun And it has placed us in a situation that we can only look at ... Like a "B" movie

Come with us back to those inglorious days when heroes weren't zeros Before fair was square When the cavalry came straight away and all-American men were like Hemingway ... To the days of the wondrous "B" movie

The producer underwritten by all the millionaires necessary Will be Casper "The Defensive" Weinberger; No more animated choice is available The director will be Attila the Haig, ... Running around frantically declaring himself in control and in charge The ultimate realization of the inmates taking over at the asylum The screenplay will be adapted from the book called "Voodoo Economics" By George "Papa Doc" Bush Music by the "Village People" the very military "Macho Man."
