The killers that run
the other countries
are trying to get us
to overthrow the killers
that run our own
I for one
prefer the rule
of our native killers
I am convinced
the foreign killer
will kill more of us
than the old familiar killer does
From the poem “The killers that run the other countries” from The Energy of Slaves by Leonard Cohen.  (Entitled “The Killers” in Stranger Music)
