Shoot while It’s Hot!

You are on death row.

You are blindfolded and tied in a pile, 
saying, “I am the target.”

This I am the executioner.

Wear a uniform, hold a rifle, 
and say, “I will shoot you.”

I have no regrets on you, 
but this is my job, so please forgive me.

Usually there are about three executors, 
who disperse the feelings of hate and guilt, 
but because of the fiscal deficit, 
it seems that only I am the best.

It’s a disappointing story, but you too.
Indeed, crime is a profitable business.

Well, because of the fiscal deficit, 
there will be more crimes.

I don’t feel like riding.
It’s no different that I killed you.

You have killed the greatest people in this country, 
but after all, nothing has changed.
 


【 熱いうちに撃て! 】

あんたは死刑囚。

目隠しされ、杭に縛られ 
標的ですよ、と言わんばかり。

この俺は死刑執行人。

制服を着て、ライフル銃を持ち 
撃ちますよ、と言わんばかり。

あんたに恨みはないが 
これが俺の仕事だから、勘弁してくれ。

普通は三人ぐらい執行人がいてよ、
恨みや罪悪感やら分散させるもんだが 
財政赤字なんで、俺ひとりが精一杯なんだと。

情けねえ話だが、あんたもあんただよ。
まったく、犯罪なんか儲からねえのによ。

まあ、財政赤字だから犯罪も増えるんだけどな。

どうも、気が乗らねえな。
あんたを殺したって、なんにも変わらねえよ。

あんた、この国の一番偉い人、殺しちゃったけど 
結局、なんにも変わってないんだもんな。
