The fierce dissidence of Williams’s polemical poetry is as radical as Shelley’s. “America: How It Works” bears witness to the monster within “the most dangerous country in world history.”
The business of America is business,
And it’s number one business is war.
It uses Hollywood to peddle its values
To turn the world into its whore.
But few of its citizens have the guts to say boo.
Otherwise they’d be refusing to pay taxes.
So, like their own media, they back war after war,
And they’re turning the world into ashes.
