We Know


By KathleenKirwin.... - Posted on 01 October 2011

They disappeared

caskets of dead

soldiers coming home;

cameras out of

view.

We knew.

They did not count

all they killed;

they did not count

at all.

We knew.

They said the

mission was accomplished.

They said the

mission was through.

Missions made of only lies.

We knew.

Murder and maim,

democracy’s name.

Murder and maim

and use our name.

Death for sale by enterprise.

Devil’s bargains stealing souls.

We know. We know. We know.

CODE ORANGE: Amendments missing!

Description: 1,4,5,8,13               

If you see them,

Call.

Their mother is worried.

Reward for their safe return.

We know.

Supreme Court fire sale:

Half off for

Politicians while they last.

We know.

Dead

Afghan children.

Dead Iraqi

children.

Dead Palestinian children.

We are the greatest

nation in the world. Dead Afghan

children.

Dead

Iraqi children.

Dead Palestinian children.

A plague on both your Houses

of Congress. A plague

on the House that is White.

We know.

Torture in secret.

plane trips to hell;

Bored with water?

Don’t ask

and Don’t tell.

We know.

Robots loom the skies alone.

Robots in command. Let them protest

all they want

but still they’ll pay the bill. We know.

Terror reigns as they terrorize.

Terror never was

if they close their eyes.

We know.

They raid at night while

families sleep,

never waking like the dead.

Impeach for treason; Sue for peace.

The poorest among us

all among us. We know.

Post-Traumatic

Too Late

Stress Syndrome.

We know.

List your occupation please:

Teacher

Nurse

Afghanistan

None.

We know.

Ibn Khaldun:

Government is an institution which prevents injustice

Other than such as

it commits itself.

We know.
