Is Aham’s yellow like my yellow
or is it red like rain?
Is Aham’s world like my world
or is it stained with pain?
If I could see through Aham’s eyes
what kind of a world would I sing?
watch an alien sun set in a foreign sea
through the glass of a naked king
And what about Aham’s thanksgiving bird
with yellow cranberry sauce and stuffing
and what about truckloads of turkeys
on their way to their yellow snuffing?
And what about Aham’s yellow anthem
and yellow democracy and socialism
and what about dying for the yellow cause
and holy yellow acts of terrorism?
