Imperialism is Dead: Long Live Imperialism!

Our aging population has a need;
through immigration then we must expand.
Because we cannot satiate our greed
we must employ more people on the land.
We know that none born here will bear a hand
in picking produce or in planting seed.
Yet really you should try to understand:
our aging population has a need.
And so too does our youthful one, indeed
its needs are greater still, so they demand
support, their sort can't bend to pick a weed;
through immigration then we must expand.
We have to grow and so we must command
our former slaves to come and work again, succeed
in building our economy. Our visions must be grand,
because we cannot satiate our greed.
We cannot stop to think but only plead
our case in terms of kindness and make sure to reprimand
those ignoramuses who pay no heed.
We must employ more people on the land
and in our factories and hospitals and take a stand
of righteousness, yet not profess we're willing to proceed
in stealing from the poor in every war torn land
the very source of their own future wealth, in order to feed
our aging population.
