Afghan Drone Attack--The Road to Elsewhere
Are you feeling like Vonnegut after the debacle'd news of the last few months?
Here's a poem by me to chew on:
The Road to Elsewhere
The highway to ‘hail,
Hail Afghans all here,’
(“Give me your ears…”)
Is paved with good intentions and ‘IUO’s.’
On that yellow ‘book’ road, quran
Men of lairs acclaim allah’s offense…
Come out of your pious lores, you liars.
But over here, we’re First,
We’re all so right, “god’s man”
Of the west wind
Our shocked awe amazes
18 years of twistered god-centered war
“only a little more…”
every precedence tells,
(“You, too …’brutal’?”)
We’re not in Kansas
No more, morals, nor never were. Was?
A last ‘stand’ stammering
In that season—us dogs of Mars and a sheep’s head,
Let’s make pieces with the Muslims,
More mothers slump to that deserted bleeding ground.*
Balmed for All...
Can't we humans get a heart?
Work for peace,
