    Evil
    daycare...
    laissez faire care
    playing dead there

    Save
    the babies
    killing must end
    save the children

    God
    adores them
    short of treason
    you're the reason

    Guns a blazing
    way past CRAZY
    games they're playing

    Call to duty ~
    wherewithal bare
    Show some love here

    i can only imagine this was written because of the Sandy Hook shooting. if not, it's a very prophetic piece. GOOD WORK HERE, 1poetsought. THANKS for sharing.

    Just what are we about?

    Are we merely a bunch of crass comsumers?!?

    Also some become a bad reflection of what they consumed!?!

    Is it 'art' and/or does real life have to be a reflection of it?!?

    I. e., whatever the illusions lead to wrongheaded conclusions, few if any of our young (or not so young) 'call to duty' players are actually joining the real armed services, and draw downs in the Arab World would make them irrrelevant, if they did...

    The concern is about what some might (or do) on the homefront....

    FYI...

    Why did brother Jamal (H. Rap Brown) came that 'violence is as American as Apple Pie'?

    I. e., given the blood history of this nation's rise to power, from sea to sea, maybe he's right!

    Maybe we too are denying the obvious...

    Let us remember the enslavement of our ancestors, and the displacement of this continent's indigenous folk, as well as help to undo the damage...
