Panama Zone Canal Blues

Richard Prince 
famous thief
was born in the Panama Canal Zone

Famous pilfered poet plot of land
made the subject of demands 
time and time again by North American hands 

they fan the flames of war and don’t even know it 
Assemblage of stolen opportunities 
Moments memorialized by absence 

I share my horoscope 
with a gas and oil company 
I share my company 
with the gas and oil industry 

An abscess upon your legacy 
Spit upon your pity party 
A tart to ruin your life 
and steer the knife into your heart
