    Its a chain reaction,
    our children are born with half the fraction,
    we forget to read the captions,
    on the daily news of actions,
    that decide if well get rations,
    and who lately the government is thrashin,
    the media keep askin,
    Why these planes keep crashin,
    and our children keep askin,
    their parents what happened,
    But the parents only has a third of the fraction,
    cause their parent was slackin,
    so they dont know how respond when,
    the child asks questions,
    So they repeat their parents suggestions,
    tells the child to "stop askin questions,"
    so the child asks no questions,
    at the parents discretions,
    they stop asking questions,
    so the grow up with half the fraction,
    no longer readin the captions,
    Until their child is born,
    and the world is torn,
    but instead of one half the fraction,
    their child is one fourth,
    and you didnt do the math then,
    just becasue a child was askin,
    and your whole family stopped readin captions,
    now Bush is president,
    Cuts your welfare,
    and starts taxin,
    now you have a reaction?
    You better go back,
    and get a re-cap,
    Read them captions,
    answer all the questions
    you were asked back then,
    and talk about the news to your grand-children,
    so when they grow up,
    they will ask all questions,
    and demand all answers,
    Read all captions,
    And wont let another [email protected] win the election,
    And when it comes time for natural selection,
    Your family will have 100% of the fraction,
    so you can start relaxin!

    This piece makes me think about the last two elections, how we felt so disenfranchised, knowing in our hearts we were robbed the first time Bush was elected, and feeling in our hearts that we were the second time. Awaiting part 2 poet.

    This was sheer perfection teaching the lessons so we don't make mistakes because we hesitate to be wise and open our eyes to see those that rob us blind of our knowledge and eventually our vote and then all we do is hope for a better day to come when we could have had the sense to not wish but create one... You inspired a quick somethin' out of me as you can see so continue on because this was the truth fa sho.
