Bob Dylan: Aged 70

We’re all going to war
Lovely, lovely war
We’re all going to war

We’re going to war
Fighting for the glory of:
Tony the deceiver
George the mission accomplisher
Saddam the Kurd killer
Osama the humbler

We’re all going to war
Fighting for our rights to:
Land
History
Oil
Heavenly virgins

We’re all going to war
Fighting for the happiness of:
Medal- givers
Limb-makers
Embalmers
Grave- diggers

As Abraham Lincoln said
“You can fool
Some of the people all of the time
And you can fool
All of the people some of the time
But you can’t fool
All of the people all of the time

Or, as Bob Dylan didn’t say
“You can fight in my war
If I can fight in yours.”
