"To strut like barnyard roosters through the earth / ... // The dove lies bleeding and will soon be dead / Shut up sit down for a hell of a ride / Guns before butter and bombs before bread"


Shut Up

 

Guns before butter and bombs before bread

The winds of war are blowing us away

Intelligence which seems madness instead

For them or else against them so they say

If you resist them they say you are mad

But have you seen the latest news today?

 

Their guns between their legs they seem so glad

To strut like barnyard roosters through the earth

As if they owned it and there were no God

No life after death nor life after birth

The peaceful are considered quaint and odd

And life is cheap when on the other side

 

The dove lies bleeding and will soon be dead

Shut up sit down for a hell of a ride

Guns before butter and bombs before bread

Now this is a great write and a great statement and that line is definately worthy of copyright and publishin.." Gins before butter and bombs before bread" very sixties retro.
