A Thanksgiving Prayer by William Seward Burroughs

Thanks for the wild turkey andthe passenger pigeons, destinedto be shit out through wholesomeAmerican guts. Thanks for a continent to despoiland poison.
Thanks for Indians to provide amodicum of challenge anddanger. Thanks for vast herds of bison tokill and skin leaving thecarcasses to rot.
Thanks for bounties on wolvesand coyotes. Thanks for the American dream,To vulgarize and to falsify untilthe bare lies shine through. Thanks for the KKK. For nigger-killin' lawmen,feelin' their notches. For decent church-goin' women,with their mean, pinched, bitter,evil faces. Thanks for "Kill a Queer forChrist" stickers. Thanks for laboratory AIDS. Thanks for Prohibition and thewar against drugs. Thanks for a country wherenobody's allowed to mind theown business. Thanks for a nation of finks. Yes, thanks for all thememories-- all right let's seeyour arms! You always were a headache andyou always were a bore. Thanks for the last and greatestbetrayal of the last and greatestof human dreams.

So when do we get invaded to remove the rogue government that spies on its own people, gases its own people during anti War protests, stages "terrorist" attacks, holds crooked elections, attacks other nations without cause, and uses torture on innocent people looking for WMD that don't exist?
