YOU KNOW WHAT GETS YOU
about these so called leaders with their
photos with their hands raised with their
angry, macho, grave looks, as they lead
us into yet another war?
you know what really gets you?
that on both sides it will be poor people
who die, children, the old, women, the
sick, these are the ones who will die.
not these rich leaders in their palaces,
in their white houses, in their congressional,
senatorial offices, in their chauffeur driven
limousines. they’ll go home at night and sleep
in a warm bed and eat till their bellies
this is what really gets you.
