he is a coward

August 27, 2007

he once stopped by
and promised to resolve
my shattered bones.

he dried my tears,
placed a candle in my heart,
but not a flame.

he proclaimed,
I will never abandon you.
then he left.

he left to have sex
with violence – like John Wayne
slapping a woman.

although he showed up,
he never returned.
again and again.

    This is a repost from 9/18/2006. This week marks the second anniversary of Hurricane Katrina.

    Thanks for reading.

    The crowd in the White House cares more about Israel than it does America. These lowlifes laughed at New Orleans and talked of cleaning it up by getting rid of poor blacks so they didn’t care what happened.

    Obviously Americans would perfer our tax money be spent to help New Orleans rather than to rebuild Iraq or take out mucking Israel’s enemies. Maybe god will send a hurricane to blow Israel off the map and a mircle so that we can get our government back from the blankety blank zionists.

    At least I hope you are no longer fooled by the lies out of this white house and our sorry Zionist run media propagandists. They care about you about as much as they care about the holocaust against Iraqis and Palestinians.

    SV – Looks to me like your comment is primarily agenda driven. Blowing Israel off the map will solve nothing. It will only create more ill will in mankind. I believe no one group or phenomenon is to blame for our plight. It is more complex than that. To make Zionists and media into scapegoats seems like the easy way out.

    I believe if you take a couple steps back you will see irrationality and fear are employed by those in power (no matter their religion, country, or ethnicity) to keep their advantages and security. Their insecurity and narcissism are what hold us back among many other things such as our willingness to suck up or look up to the rich and powerful. Peace.

    If there’s no money to be made, then it’s There, there… and out.

    This was an embarrassment.
