DIVIDE AND RULE (You’re Only a Tool)

In the Divide and Rule game,

We assign the blame,

With show trials for the losers,

Courtrooms always have their uses.

**

Ten million televisions,

One million radios,

Endlessly repeat,

The horrors we expose.

**

Slap on sanctions,

Pour in guns,

Fear not victims,

In we come!

**

“Are you qualified to hate?”

“We’ve got weapons for you mate.”

You idiot! You fool!

You’re nothing but our tool.

**

Children carry rifles,

Firearms bought with drugs,

You cynically promote,

An army full of thugs.

**

Try to take our friends to court?

Your plans will come to nought.

A hostile UN mission,

Will never get permission.

**

In the Divide and Rule game,

We assign the blame,

With show trials for the losers,

Courtrooms always have their uses.

**

It’s a stagnant land of death,

The young ones have all left.

After twenty years of ‘peace’,

The economy has ceased.

**

Why d’you endlessly declaim,

The sins of foes long beaten.

Our children clothed in rags,

Their mother has not eaten.

**

Well paid experts from the West,

Travel heavy in flak vest,

They come to write reports,

But nothing ever gets support.

You idiot! You fool!

You’re nothing but a tool.

**

In the mixed up world you’ve made,

Invaders are all victims,

Aggressors in the right,

All problems solved by might.
