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

no soldiers

obsessions leave wakes

I heard “oral sex”
ten thousand times more
than “terrorism”.

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

If only it had been otherwise…

In the days of antennae
atop wooden consoles –
we pulled in whatever
was out there.

Much of it, war footage:
tanks in mud
men on stretchers
cannon flashing
Zeros falling

and Der Fuhrer
pounding his fist
in truculent German
to adoring masses.

I would wonder:
what is he saying?
why is he so pissed?
why would people like him?

(just as a non anglophone might think
when first seeing a 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
