Class Warfare ?

May 28, 2008

Why not?
The rich are already
kicking our asses

Our country was born of
contempt for privilege.

Yet we are now besmirched

for having those same
patriotic opinions.

divisiveness

divisiveness
keeps us separated –
easier to use

what if
we stopped
building mansions

what if
we began
to build ourselves.

our home
in our hearts
freedom

our home
in each other
humanity

our home
in love compassion
reality

until
there are
no soldiers
we have all
died in
vain

I heard oral sex
ten thousand times
more
than terrorism.

I saw her face
ten thousand times
more
than bin Laden’s.

atop wooden consoles
we pulled in whatever
was out there

footage of tanks
in hopeless mud
cannons flashing
through the night

our rugged life,
at the television
we would stare

zeros twisting
down in flames
der fuhrer pounding
with indignant might

in truculent german
to adoring masses
who would cheer

as he screamed
we versus them
follow the dream
the deutsches reich

I would wonder
what is he saying?
why is he so angry?

why are people
cheering
goose stepping
haling heiling

singing crying
like fools
smiling?

(just as a non
anglophone might think
when first hearing Limbaugh)

screwing common people

May 30, 2007

common people
want peace
and harmony

those who divide us
are manipulators
and misfits
power brokers
and fist lovers

how do we cope?
drugs and tv
earning and spending

through escape
we join them

pro-life
pro-death penalty
