    As hypocrisies fall down on third world countries
    and tread lands with forked tongues looking
    for a suspect...
    ...I suspect that the food that rains from the
    sky is poisoned with conditions and strings
    attached...attached
    to a lie called Enduring Freedom
    attached to bombs that fall around
    the refugee that follow a maze of
    body parts and oatmeal and pictures
    of Sally Struthers donned as barbara Bush
    claiming that 80 cents to feed a child
    for a day really makes sense....
    and beneath the ******** foreign policies
    and fallacies that control arms to wave
    flags, and "good ole patriots" screaming
    for blood and...
    ...blood...and blood
    and more blood....'til the mississippi
    runs red...and
    beneath the 43 million dollars the Good ole boys
    gave too the bombed to fight a drug war while
    so many patriots are hooked and
    beneath the propaganda that this is a fight against terrorism
    when McVeighs crew hasn't seen anything like this...
    and third world countries are subject to Western
    microscopes and shown to the world
    as experiments of our guvernment as examples
    of "this could happen to you" if you don't
    "do as I say and not as i do"...and
    beneath all the political banter,
    and positioning and checkmating on a chessboard
    we call this global community and beneath all
    the media driven messages fed to
    us on radioactive spoons
    and beneath all the anthrax scares caused by
    sick opprotunistic amerikkkans
    and beneath the 430 billion dollars appropriated
    'just in time" for the defense budget....
    there lies beneath
    Homeless people living in self built
    shanties by underground railroads
    in this hypocritical hell hole
    we call the red,
    the white and the blue...

    ...they are no longer parts
    of this "democratic" SO-ciety
    no longer asked if they slept sound
    at night no longer looked after by
    anyone....these are the people
    who Uncle Sam turned his back on...
    these are people who are icons
    of those like them...

    ..all beneath the skies that fly
    this flag that patriots wave so dearly...
    not understanding that it's reason is
    so badly abused and untrue...

    and beneath the shouts for blood
    and JUSTICE to be served they
    swallow these sounds as food for
    their thoughts...

    And if we dare speak!

    And if we dare speak of war atrocities that we perpetuate
    It is us that are labeled UNpatriotic and us they will alleviate
    Of our personal freedoms we have none now to speak of
    for america the brave bullshyter, and the truth defoulers.....
    We do seeK a more perfect imperfection as we turn your
    attention in another direction.
    AND WE ALL KNOW THAT THE BIGGEST THIRD WORLD POPULATION RESIDES WITHIN THE UNITED STATES!!!!!!!

    behind the curtain!" ;from The Wizard of Oz,

    yo flow!:confused:
    BLESSINGS ON YA HOUSE!
