It is Fourth of July –Independence Day! Are ALL Americans Independent?
D E A T H I N D O D G E C I T Y
A gunshot from the river bed.
A Mexican. A white man: dead.
Let some wetbacks out of jail –
another herds’ arrived by rail.
Hey, Panama! El Salvador!
Get those cattle in the door.
That’s what God has made you for.
Cattle prods make young steers do
anything you want them to.
We’ve got other prods for you.
Shoot a spike through each steer’s head:
They’re still alive, but dream they’re dead.
You’re dreamers too – each one of you.
That’s the way you make it through.
You have to make your dreams come true –
they’re people. They depend on you:
one life exchanged for twenty-two.
