Linda Breitag 2003

with inspiration from the kids of Peace Village

Embarrassingly enough, people around the world often seem to know and care more about what the U.S. is up to—starting wars, polluting, torturing, etc.—than we ourselves do. ¡Basta! sprouts new verses continually; here’s today’s snapshot. (Plus one thankfully-obsolete, full-snark stanza, below).

lipstick on a pitbull, lipstick on a pig

lipstick on a polar bear who runs an oil rig

well I don’t care if she wears lipstick, has fresh and minty breath

cause Palin near the White House, well, that’s the kiss of death
