Bushist Rhetoric

RED RIDING HOOD
*
Red may have been foolish,
naive or vain
when she set off alone
to soothe Grandma's pain.
*
One might wonder though,
if she's really sane
to join the Wolf in the bush
for the Wolf's neo-game.
*
His power jaws, in plain site of all
ate Grandma up, no one complained.
Red felt so blue, the Wolf she saw through!
Took a knife, Wolf's life, spared Grandma again.
*
Now when Red travels deep into the woods,
she goes with her brother, Little Boy Blue.
Together they're stronger to face dangers and tricks
"cuz after all, Grandma is his grandma too.

Bush

IMPOTENTate pRESIDENT

*
Bush planned to use his Political Credit
to buy Miers' some Judicial Merit.
*
Whyever want her Supreme Judgment?
He needs a shill for the Impeachment!

Plague

ASHES, ASHES
*
Neglect old cities;
when they're filthy
let them drown.
(we all fall down)
*
Ignore weak people
in hapless efforts;
when they fall down
we all fall down.
*
we are a plague upon our own

New Orleans

KKKatrina and the Terror-eyes/ed
*
Imbedded in their faces,
an unblinking stare;
suffering surges, filling spaces
in us we didn't know were there.
*
Eyes in fear of death, the terror
itself pierces the lens;
our immortal error,
their tribe on ours depends.
*
Refugees, victims, all of us
fear our futures, our children's fates,
to need these men of scorn and lust,
of murder most foul,
and unnatural ways.

Cindy She-shines is a Radical!

Mr. "Ken"
from CNN
has a serious quirk:
he's a hopeless jerk
*
He's at Camp Casey,
uncomfortable and out-of-place-a
woman who can speak her mind,
not be trivialised by his kind
does so, impacts his bloated mind.
He thinks he's going for the kill,
accused her as merely a media thrill.
*
She bares her will
the airwaves fill.
"Yes, we have made mistakes,
Now we ourselves retake."
Mr. Ken pops his biggest fake:
"You're working for the liberal's sake!!"
*
Steady as she goes,
did anyone else hear?
"Yes, dear,
but let's be clear;
I'm more radical, I fear,
than media is, at all, aware.

Genocide Works

Isn't it ironic
Re: genocide Teutonic;

Everybody says,
"Never again."

In America,
Ongoing massacre.

For German youth, genocide is unreal;
No one knows any Jews.

Indians were disappeared
To invisibility. Percent surviving? Two.

Weeping and gnashing of teeth doesn't save
Hutsis when Tutsis are allowed to rampage.

Spain killed the Aztecs, killed them all
Darfur refugees still fall.

Who are the hurricane refugees?
The people trapped or those who could flee?

What is it in some human beings;
Lust for power or for blood.
What are their thoughts. Their feelings.

Will wise and peaceful rulers
Ever supplant these crueler fools?

The BBQ President


the meat of endless war;
slow-roast campaigning
to tenderize this lousy cut
helps digestion of the lying

B-B-Q -in-Chief
his common touch,
have a beer while he turns the spit;
"We like him 'cuz he's just like us"

BBQ and shoot from the whim,
it's not the truth he's cookin';
like a highway toad not lookin'
the truth is cooking him

but don't "misunderestimate"
his ability to "disassemble;"
his lackeys cook the intell,
Bush poisons the well



A Day in the Life of...


driving, young Iraqi man
with his English exam

behind him sees
two Humvees

a ramp, he slows
so they can go

guns blast
as they pass

he swerves off the road,
falls to the concrete below

(old man waits
fears his son's fate)

Army has no report
of conflict; (do they shoot for sport?)

doctor said, " hit twice in the head"
when he crashed to earth
he was already dead

Another GOP Mystery

The Republicans always brag about
being the party of the Founding Fathers,
so why, when Howard Dean agrees,
do they get all hot and bothered?

Who would the founders be
if not Christian and white?
(Not really, but this is assumed
by the Christian Right)

The Political Class






The discrepancy between rich and poor
is not explained simply by
their endless greed for more.

Evolution of unbridled capitalism;
question whether democracy
can survive this widening schism.

The powerful, the rich
historic for their deals;
the ante's reached a fever pitch.

Corporations have economies,
(the powerful rule the nations)
larger than the world's countries.

This has created a brand new class,
Their grasp on liberty is tight;
Democracy's expensive, reserved for the Political Class.

The Politicals know to keep us deprived:
People in need have no time or attention
To organize, to stop them. For centuries, they've survived.

The Ownership Society







The regime's philosophy
Like glove to hand, so neatly
Defines exactly who is free
In Ownership Society.

Their template is the rules
That the founding fathers used;
From fetid brains ideas oozed:
"Ownershipless folks are tools
For rich white males to disabuse

Of voice and vote and jury sit,
Of land (no women own it).
Black folks, not slaves, a 4/5 chit
To elect their kings;"

IT DOESN'T FIT!
The Here. The Now.
You must ACQUIT!

King Bush


Every time he's on tv,
Our King walks on red carpeting.
Other presidents talked to the press
In spartan rooms, quite colorless.

His Highness- (is he high?
the pupils of his eyes
dilated, piercing, focused more
than they ever were before.)

- Bush devours freedoms
From within his mental kingdom,
And real countries, far and wide,
How? God's IN him, not merely at his side.
We find not only has he lied,
He's eaten up uncounted lives.

His appetite to rule unchecked,
But to us, the fearful hordes,
It's clear this system stacks the deck
For winning only by King Gorged.

Planes, trains and the 9-11 Commission


Recall Our Lady of Condo-Leeza,
Speaking to Congress,
sweet as you please-until
Asked about a memo titled "Al Quaeda
Planning to attack from INSIDE America"?

She laughed, she tittered and she scoffed.
"Who could imagine this scheme or pulling it off,
Using planes as missles on targets hard or soft??"
BUT, it was tried before; come down from aloft!

Once upon a time President Nixon ruled.
His iron fist enraged a Crazy Dude
Who aspired to assassinate him
By crashing a airliner he had hijacked
Into the White House, with Nixon within.

The would-be killer and his gun
Boarded the airliner,
Shot several people;
He thought he had won.

Two of the injured were the pilot and co-
Hijacker couldn't fly; it was a no-go.

most passengers and crew were saved
The assassination blocked
By brains and bravery
Of a few local cops!

This was all on TV!
Yet it never entered the mind
of Condi?
the Military?
Security?
And she tops it all off with sneers, condescension
Toward people deserving respect
For their years of public service;
( government isn't just her invention.)

Italian Hostage/ American Saint


Guiliana Sgrena loves news writing;
She had the truth about Fallujah
From survivors of the fighting.

Taken hostage then set free
By countrymen, heroically,
But she was shot and he was killed
By US troops they couldn't see
Trying to reach safety.

Marla Ruzica, from America,
Was there to count Iraqi dead;
"We don't record the dead civilians,"
The US Army said.

She was blown to bits by hidden bombs
meant to break the hearts of soldiers moms.

A week before she told friends
new information she had discovered:

The military DOES keep count
Of civilians bodies they'd recovered.
