How can you have a war on terrorism when war itself is terrorism?

-      Howard Zinn


Flesh and blood time bombs

Do you hear them ticking?

The mechanical heart valves

Frantically clicking?


Breaking the age-old, gilded framework

Ripping up the old fabric, the schema

Crazed on a daily diet of gunpowder and hate

Dreaming of a new Hiroshima


All worthy causes, all worth a bloodbath

Men, women, children on the ground

Fish out of water, caught in a net

Gasping, drowned

The seemingly endless aggressive stupidity of mankind appears to be a condition that will never correct
A poisonous planetary pimple that periodically pops
Another (of many) good writes

It's not enough to feel something, or to experience life. The essence is to be collected and poured into a poem so that it may be understood. That's my philosophy anyway. more..
