That Good Ole Fashioned Troy Davis Waltz

Hook him to the I.V.
Shoot him three times
Innocent or not.
Last President wiped out thirty thousand
With stroke of microphone
TV and a smirk he can’t hide.
So what? Go ahead.
Whirl on your toes.
Spin the next kill
To your own persuasion.
Don’t matter no how
A forever Georgia Peach
You can’t wait for the next call
The next game, the next gas leak.
The next orchestrated know how
Kickback to when how
Take a bow
Do the American jig.
Needle him for good.
Dance like hell.
