Prayer

A prayer to stop world cops
and douse the dreams of oil- crazed old men
A prayer against Empire;
for all imperial designs to fail
A prayer for a return to balance of power
and the establishment of equal exchange.


A prayer for an end to world corporate takeover
A prayer that the whole planet
doesn’t go into full robber baron mode
A prayer to stop more bank blackmail bailouts
and countries held hostage by the IMF
A prayer for an end to the World Bank as King.


A prayer for an end to greed dressed as virtue
For an end to misers disguised as heroes,
a finish to those who would take it all.


A prayer for a return to real political dialogue
For an end to empty campaign rhetoric
and pep rally conventions
and fake populists
who report to corporate masters.


A prayer for an end to people going broke
because they got sick
A prayer for an end to huge medical bills
A prayer for an end to all medical bills,
A prayer for an end to health care for profit
Forever.


A prayer for an end to drone aircraft attacks
extra-judicial killings
and torture
A prayer for re-observance of the Geneva conventions
and for the UN to act as protector
of all nations
not just the rich Western ones


A prayer for the defeat of phony peacekeeping forces
everywhere
And an end to invasion
and infrastructure destruction
Disguised as the spread of democracy


A prayer for an end to world cops and security freaks
We can look after ourselves just fine, thank you
A prayer for the plans of all Empire builders
to go terribly wrong everywhere
to run awry and unravel completely Worldwide
A prayer that the whole
Bossy grabby
Bloody deathy
Meat grinding machine
Chokes on a bolt
and blows a gasket


A prayer for everybody to just
leave each other the fuck alone for once
A prayer for peace and quiet,
even if it’s just for fifteen minutes….
