Don’t buy our cola
our chips
and our not so good chocolate

Don’t use our banks
or watch our violent
TV shows or movies

Don’t travel
to the U.S.
there are much
friendlier,
interesting,
and more peaceful places
to visit
around the world

Don’t believe
the arrogance
coming
from Washington

Don’t buy our weapons
and don’t buy
our bullshit

The time has come
for the people
of the world
to put America
in its place

America is not
exceptional
it’s not great
it is a global bully
a collapsing empire
a childish brat
who must be sent
into the timeout
corner
before it blows
up the world

Don’t buy it
anymore
