Tyrant Lady Columbia 

Mighty, with reign unchecked

A stiff mirage of liberty

Robed with tainted Christian sect

She, a shadow, rare a beacon

This whore of shredded moral haul

She begs of grieving widowed mothers

Might each, bravely, toss their all

 

Tyrant Lady Columbia 

Like carrion caws, she circles death

To chew the cattled cud of bravery

In trade, impoverish civilian breath

And proudly stands her eerie eye

Above the soldier, written home

In a crate of scenic honor

To an anguished woe, condoned 

 

Tyrant Lady Columbia 

Fodder soon is me

Consumed in what is progress 

Another nameless casualty 

I beg of cowards, have no shame

Fear is well and free

Boasting her omnipotence 

Lady Columbia; Tyranny!
