not to take a stand is to be a collaborator
– Howard Zinn

it is not man’s nature that is violent it is his history
pontificating ends do not justify the means
while proceeding to make it so
oopsy poopsy no WMD’s but look at democracy
blooming around the world
meanwhile back in the good old US of A
Christian diehard politicians echo one another
(in psych 101 it is called echolalia)
violence has become our nature it happens
when we poison our very own DNA
mind body spirit out of balance
earthquake tsunami tilts the Earth
