A Postville Lament

Lyrics  about the Postville raid from Leslie Holman


A Postville Lament


Mama’n Papa they rolled outta bed
Had to get to the slaughter’n station
What they soon found out was they’d been sold out
ICE had started its “investigation.”

It’s against the law
It was against the law
What Postville saw
It was against the law

Judge Reade looked down and spit on the ground
Every time a bond was mentioned
The manu’l a ploy just to get those boys
and stick em in a barn of detention

You’ll try it my way!
They won’t know what we’re saying
Got seven days, I’m giving no time
And I won’t be fair

Goodbye to justice and constitution
Holding Juan and Julio out in a cow barn
Holding Juan and Julio out in a cow barn

Oh, In a couple of days they would’ve
Put em away
But Erik let the story leak
And when the gallant Rockne
Dared to say not me
It should’ve been on the cover of Newsweek

If I had my way
When H.R. they’re trying
They’ll now delay, Just taking their time
Cuz its only fair

Goodbye to justice and constitution
Rubushkin and Althouse now in the cow barn
Reade and Dummermuth next in the cow barn.


Then no one else in a f#@ing cow barn.

KJ
