Water Canons

I’ve been craving bacon again;
In all my self-imposed laws
It’s a sin. Suddenly
I wondered what became of you,
As I might some day too become
Reincarnated on a lower rung;
So I placed my sandwich down
On a plate, and pushed it away.

It is more or less the same
As taxpayers’ dollars
Remunerating suppliers
(Often related to legislators
With spending decisions to make)
Of rubber bullets and pepper spray.
For water canons, will always
Be bought, come what may,
By the drowning.
