as you were…

 

it’s
a free market
those children
torn
from
their parents’ arms
are
commodities
made in
the
usa
an
adoption bonanza
for
sex slave dealers
a business
only
interrupted
briefly
by
public outrage
but
the media’s
gone
and
public concern
is
on
monday night football
so
dealers
as you were
did anyone
really care
about
those black children
murdered
by
the police
when
even
the president
says
he could kill someone
and
the american public
would
forgive
and
forget
no doubt
with the claim
of
fake news
so
officers
as you were
oh
and
mentioning denials
have you heard
the one about
where 15 saudi assassins
enter a consulate
and
only
they
come out
saying
what murder
but
they have no fear
for
the path was clearly
outlined
by
the us president
whose
outrage
over the event
has lasted
as long as
his tweets
so
assassins
as you were
and
one cannot
have such a verse
without
mentioning
for
you to forget
the
weekly
target practice
israeli soldiers
take
on
palestinian children
world outrage
with
a flurry of words
but
in the end
soldiers
as you were
should
i
mention
starving children
here
and
abroad
diseased ravaged bodies
from
war
and
natural worldwide disasters
oh
probably not
your
favorite
podcast
or
roman colosseum type event
is
certainly
due to begin
so
as you were

 

 

“As you were” is a standard military command. It means, literally, “[return] to your previous posture”.
