Play time

In this country children are encouraged to play sports
to help prepare them for wars to come

The cheerleading, the fierce mascots, the school spirit
the speeches, the bullying, the fight songs
the sacrifices, the demonization of opponents

In this country football is supreme
as a game of trench warfare in militaristic uniforms

The insatiable sports audience often in a coliseum look alike
feeds on the violence and the trauma of the game

Guns and God / God and Guns
Children in this country are encouraged to play sports

In this country football is supreme
but do not look at the crippled players with mangled bodies and brains
as there are plenty of young and upcoming gladiators for cannon fodder

Moloch is a demanding god and children
must be sacrificed to placate the greed.
