What God Wants

What God Wants, January 2011 (acrylic, wallpaint, string, and paper on wood; 60,5 x 52,5 cm)

This was inspired by Roger Waters' song: What God Wants, Part II, on the album Amused to Death, 1992. I love this album, and all the rest from Waters, and Pink Floyd.
The lyrics to this particular song can be found here.

And they include:

"God wants dollars
God wants cents
God wants pounds shillings and pence
God wants guilders
God wants kroner
God wants Swiss francs
God wants French francs
Oui il veut des francs francais
God wants escudos
God wants pesetas
Don't send lira
God don't want small potatoes"

(You can find clips of Waters performing the song on youtube - but you won't be able to view it in some countries.)
