War State of mind: my friends at war Constantly I find myself in a world of confusion ~ seeking food with substance ~ only to be served another illusion ~ hungry ~ starving but withstanding ~ as the metabolism of my curiousity ~ eats at my mentality ~ inflicting headaches from strenuous contemplating ~ speculating ~ capitulating ~ and annihilating ~ theories ~ philosophies ~ complex reasoning ~ for simple catastrophes ~ realistic operatic mealodies. Pro war...so to my understanding ~ maybe I'm wrongfully standing ~ but correct me later if I'm misunderstanding ~ so many lives lost ~ as you hide from impeachment behind war ~ measuring victory ~ by numbers of casualties ~ Mr. President are they casualties ~ to the mothers/ fathers ~ one child less ~ or childless ~ to the sons/daughters ~ without a mother/father ~ the wives ~ who will never feel security in their husbands' embrace ~ or husbands who will never see the warmth in their wife's face ~ when will you realize they are not just casualties ~ they are not faceless numbers ~ they are people ~ like me ~ like you ~ with a role in society. You stand there with a smile filled with pearly white pride ~ and think you have our support ~ don't you know ~ it's not you ~ but our troops ~ we support ~ you say it's all in the name of democracy ~ ha, democracy ~ what a hypocrisy ~ you want to give back a voice to those overseas ~ by setting them free ~ but Mr. President what about me? and so many others ~ you and your campaign silenced when they threw our votes out ~ or do we the people not count? *AuRgh* _______________________________ Shooting blanks...Nah, this gun is loaded!
