The rifles are clean, the water drawn
Cans stacked up on a shelf
A media simulation gone wrong
And we're praying for détente

We lived a dream, tried to ignore
The shit leaking out of the pipes
Now with the power out on this bitter cold night
We're waiting for the war

The commentariat left weeks ago
For their rocky mountain bungalows
Jettisoned the mess of their creation

The militia family down the street
Drills out a false retreat
Preparing for their personal Ilerda

The activist, the angry mob
The bootlegger and baptist all
Sloppy drunk in a pool of self-delusion

Fingers point across the hall
Stick to the script, heed the call
A third act towards a forgone conclusion
