So there I was, putting together January's STREET SHEET, and I was 
looking at it and thought 'geeze, this is a little "wonk-y." with two 
reports, a legislative analysis, and a ballot argument there is 
precious little shit-stirring in this issue'.

Then I checked out the Direct Action Media Network url.  This was a 
song all of our valiant brothers and sisters in Seattle used a an 
xmas carol to the WTO. Reflects my feelings, exactly.

Peace,

A Song in Honor of the Cops

Come and gather round you people now and listen to me yak,
All you doctors and you lawyers and you folks who push the crack,

And you folks who push the buttons and you folks who push the mops,
Come listen while I tell you how I really like the cops!

Oh I really like the cops, I think they're pretty cool,
I like them in my neighborhood, I like them in my school,
I think the cops are wonderful. I think the cops are nice.
And I like to have a broken jaw and carry a pack of ice.

I really like the cops. I think they're pretty neat.
I like it when they take my face and smash it in the street,
And then they drag me to the station, and they lock me in a room,
And then I like it when they rape me up the anus with a broom.

I really like the cops. They make me want to sing.
You know my favorite movie is that tape of Rodney King,
And so I really get pissed off whenever somebody like you
Suggests we should subject them to a citizen's review.

I really like the cops. I am so glad that they're around.
To hassle me and ticket me for sitting on the ground.
I really love the cops, I'd be so sad if they were gone.
There's something about a uniform that always turns me on.

I really like the cops. Just to see them gets me high;
I hope that I get taken into custody and die.
And then I hope that every fact that's in the coroner's report
Gets chucked into a dumpster so it won't be heard in court

And when I hear you making statements that you know are quite obscene,
Like how the cops are nasty, and how the cops are mean,
It makes me want to tell you that you ought to get some class
And help your local officers by kicking your own ass!

So gather round you people now and listen to me yak,
All you doctors and you lawyers and you folks who push the crack,

And you folks who push the buttons and you folks who push the mops,
Come listen while I tell you how I really like the cops!
