the directness of your lies
The sheer quantity
of your false strands
somehow you never got stuck
inside your own web
Death and Destruction
Those are your powers
How well you trap your prey
for their poison
A demented Predator
unaware of any limits
on its own appetite
way over the ocean
trillions die in the suction.
I will let you know when I'm blogging again. Thanks for stopping by, my friend.
I like that this poem reminds us of how outraged we still need to be. It is apparently so easy to just write it all off, get caught up in the new election, etc, etc-- but this is a well needed slap.
That's a big word, I know, like Marmalade,--but you have to let some things pass wihthout comment,letting the phenemoneon, uh, show itself.
Isn't that what the ancient Greeks meant? :)
CG: alas, Bush is far from alone, he is respected by millions. but he is the most brash president i've ever seen, and a symbol of the things i'm writing about here.
kissa: yeah, i had that same reaction, and this time he seems to have actually won. 911 messed a lot of people up though.
PP: it was a very moving post, very honest, so i'm sure it had an affect on most of your readers.
Ivan: I know that's the general theory of writing, but sometimes one is moved by anger to rant. it won't win me any awards, but it says what i needed to say. and most of the awards go to stupid nature poems anyway.
I guess I'm just not salty enough.
Like James,Shaver Wordsworth?
Maybe I should "Quaff a daff."
Or Croak a Crocus. :)
Egad. March Madness.
Oh, and I got to the "Tin Pan Alley" explanation, too. Have a great weekend.
Ivan: I think you know what you like, and have an appreciation for quality, and I appreciate that, and your honest feedback. It's just that this one's not really intended to be good, so much as from the heart.
BBE: Can't listen to those douchebags. Their cynicism is stifling, infuriating, annihilating, and fruitless. It's just not worth it. I'm familiar with their worldview, and I rejected it in my infancy. No need to re-visit it now.
Eric: I'll be by soon to check out your response and other new things. Good to see your smiling face again.
I'll miss you. So inspiring in your ineptitude. So many words of artistic greatness written about you. You will leave a void when you pass - kind of like the emptying of the lower intestinal tract.
You think McCain will get in?
F**k I hope not.
Ron Paul seemed to be the only republican talking any sense and he got torched in the early runnings.
TC: not that i take the bible literally, but given his track record he's due to burn in a few decades. i think there's a spot saved for him next to suharto. prison, on the other hand, i wouldn't wish on anyone.
