Lynched by Hugh Dysart


Rope lynching was impractical,
drew big crowds
Stupid hoods, tree requirements
The rolling heads,
scared the shit out of the wife and kids

Electrical lynching had potential,
Great V.I.P. section,
killer utilities, don’t have that swing,
no rolling heads
Bored the shit out of the wife and kids

Lynched by Authority,
lynched by cop
Death in second, hand amendments
Shot in movies, shot in class,
bloody previews, cap in the ass
Red river, blood streams

Lynched by Amerikan Dream.
