Divide and conquer is the tool used and what we all suffer under is generally called an oligarchy.. Specifically its called a plutocracy... Doesn't matter if you live in a western democracy,monarchy, or a fundamentalist whatever...It is the same, the few at top with most of the wealth rule through various means the many....This what happens when you clump together in herds, become cattle and let others lead you...

The Beast

It’s very difficult to recognize the beast
for he is usually dressed in a wrap-around flag seemingly righteous shining brightly & quite glorious
he sparkles brilliantly studded with seemingly flawless justice & untarnished virtue, proclaiming protection for the helpless & mercy for one and all
so very honorable & is most humbly pious boasting of his merciful means
good intentions that the complacent churches proclaim as well-blessed
for his glorious constitution is the pinnacle of principles & probity at a master freemason level

Ah, but you see the devil is wrapped in deception for his core is corruption
many names does he go by for he is quite exceptional
numerous laws does he develop for he is above them all
all worship & adore him so he believes is the best that’s ever been

Clichés & simple minded maxims he spews forth aplenty
for he supports the troops as he demands that you do & of course it is a faultless force for good as he wars for peace by total terror
all are in wonder &awe shocked by his militarized magnificence
who can dare stand against him in war or peace

Swollen with pride & self-worship he is quite comfortable with his xenophobic vanity on steroids
above all reproach & criticism none care to complain or subject to rendition
the best before & the greatest that will ever be for he is above all, quite incomparable
who would dare not acknowledge such grandeur or criticize his ever cracking whip

Born of fire but such a noble birth
none have ever seen the like or ever will to match its pinnacle of pride
for this path is golden & soars as an eagle above any & all that's even been or ever will be
carved by the gods into perfection from global girth a whole continent cannot contain this hunger

No stranger to violence, terrorism nor war
a day has not gone by that was absent of the three
the city on the hill calls for peace as it wars against friend & foe alike
e'er with patriotism & nationalism his hubris jingoism

When your the biggest, baddest & bawdiest kid on the block anything goes
who could stand up to you when you will bribe, hector or instill regime change anytime anywhere
Your desire is absolute domination & utter global subjugation
as you swallow your youth by indoctrinated brainwashing & turn them into war hoes to tour the foreign sites with a gun in your hand & elitist ego as your demeanor

Freedom is a eves-dropping cage while bravery is propaganda fear
a totalitarian police state of democracy you've'e built on the sheeple’s back into a plutocracy
a house of cards shaped into a tiger roaring rabid rants of diatribes & rage
but one day coming soon the emperor will be shown to have no clothes…

As the eagle has morphed into a vulture
the united states of sparta is a land of mammonistic locust whose ethos is to consume it all
and though no man is no island i have heard
what was once grandiose and manifested to be destined
is now to perfidy to become Easter island as it then consumes itself…

white roses flutter from above...

Just another day in der loyal homeland
when the unfaultable troopers are, without a figment of dissent, honored as untouchable gods
in every school at all the churches awash in perpetual patriotic self-praise at the pied piper parades

at each & every sporting event every time over & over, piled upon more &more until you snap to nationalistic attention automatically
& its always the same self-deluding gratuitous perpetual grandstanding xenophobic bs

Stars will be spangled & the band will be playing as tears gush from pious eyes
eloquent speeches full of bravado & glory for amoral hired guns who execute the bidding of the opulent oligarchy
tears streaming with prideful gratefulness amplified by thunderous clapping

just as the stiff warriors arrive mechanically clutching their soldiers hearts
stoic & resolute as toy soldiers always are
red-eyes raised high to the flag whilst under crackling boots broken little bodies called bugsplat crunch

the little school children set up in the front row like cannon fodder bowling pins lined up for the next frame
as one synchronized complicit machine good obedient citizens stand to pledge
and it looks so mechanically precise very snake-oiled shined indeed

waving majestically untouched above the rule of law the red & white and blue so pure & true
the monotone response with never a dissent or discord as they speak as one
they pledge incessantly blind obedience to a most cruel deception

just as the patriotic explosion reached its climatic crescendo
something happens that no one could foresee nor anticipate
a horn sounded from high above, then white pieces of paper start fluttering from the blue sky

they shimmered as they twinkled & spun like stars on a dark night
gently, quietly spun and descended
each & everyone a name of a victim of a child that these heroes killed

Hundreds came down
thousands upon thousands
a rolling blizzard of papyrus and silk as it slowly piled to the ankles to rise higher and higher

every forgotten name from every decimated nation, every Mexican who was murdered defending his land every freedom fighting flillipino,every Viet, every afghan, Iraqi, Yemenis, Paki kid slaughtered for freedom
so many kids from so many lands & they kept falling as they kept expanding from the floor

every non soldier from every land where the American military has slaughtered for profit, plunder & policy for national interests every child, every orphan, every crippled son & daughter
names in blood as red as red could be

upon each & everyone a photograph of each and every kid
every child, mother, sister brother father cousin uncle & aunt of those who suffered from the military
silence hushed the crowds as the horn note played on an on was never faltering, never wavering

Then as the last piece fell, as a great silence screamed from the past into the present
you could just discern the gentle sobbing of a school girl
a cry of shame, horror, pain for all the victims that surrounded her, reached for her, touched her

as she slowly laboriously raised her head and looked out the school window
a blue sign caught her eye and she read; 'war is not the answer'
she softly moaned more....she wept for the children, she wept for the solders, she wept for the victims of militarism, she wept for the cost of the colossal lie she now saw through with the lucid sight of a child

then without fanfare she gently prayed for a better day when people would war no more & especially worship no more the warrior and the violence they initiate
but she sniveled & prayed quietly for she was afraid of what others would say

Next day the newspapers headlined; 'Great Terrorist Attack from the Sky'
the president called for heads to roll of course as usual congress rolled too but on its back
anyone caught with any of the notes was subject to indefinite detention by secretive executive order

all the notes were assembled confiscated shredded then burned in a great bonfire at the white house
for homeland security, for national interests & to protect and ensure the American way of life
the military was sent all over the world to bomb terrorize, rendition, imprison & drone those responsible

But one little school girl named Sophie talked with her friends as they hid in secret
they stared at their crumbled notes with the names of the innocent murdered children
in the dark with a flashlight hidden in the closet they whispered, sniffed and conspired

they made a pact that one day some day as they grew up
all the notes they could gather would be in every school book, in every locker, in every pew in the land.....
on each and every note in the upper corner
the emblem of the white rose next to the child's photograph...the pledge of a schoolgirl named Sophie

The Silver Drone with Starbucks Clusters
by michael hall

What courage it must take to set yourself apart from those who serve in the trenches
for a kid gangsta of capitalism to sip a cold coke on one hand
while his other hand is stroking a joystick & with just a gentle press
8000 miles away human beings that have never done him or his harm are now droned into bugsplat

What exceptional bravery this act of aggressive violence must demand
for s/he might suffer from carpal tunnel syndrome or worse a blister on the finger
with nerves of steel ne'er to complain for lives are at stake so s/he carries on & pushes the button of terror
careful, what if the soda spilled thereby rendering the keyboard useless? oh the horror

To wreak out death upon terrorists in the making sheep-herding children, ah the bravery
to slaughter dangerous pregnant women at a bridal shower, what pluck & heroism
to kill medics and first-responders who dare to help the wounded from your previous kill, such courage
what gallantry and valor one must exhibit to slaughter mourners at a funeral procession

So to show recognition to the brave souls who kill at command at the press of a knob 1/2 a world way a distinguished 'warfare' medal of honor has been created to award those who have no honor
announced with grandiose fanfare & full flags a' flapping just the other day by war criminal DS Panetta
this will outrank the bronze star and the purple heart and what a triumph is that america?

What a propaganda coup d'état by the bureaucrats in subterranean dusty think tanks
such a wonderful way to legitimize a most immoral and illegal act that defines odium
as they flim-flamed & came up with this 'combat' decoration for a most nefarious deed
and i wonder what lucky american school kid will be the first to touch one or to toss it down a toilet

Back at home in the united states of mordor
a great cackle of cheering and applause droned at every school church & walmart throughout the land
to praise & pay tribute to those daring war-idols who earned such a distinguished medal
the much coveted and respected; 'Silver Drone with Starbucks Clusters'

For who else could earn by total disregard of personal safety with such displays of video gallantry & virtual valor
who else should deserve such a high honor & recognized award squealed Leon Panetta from atop a pile of splattered blood & broken bones
these extraordinary actions by lightening slight of hand upon a joystick of death
to murder anywhere anytime anyone for any reason is now the definition of American Hero

they don't have complete control, they are like anything built on lies...weak...as long as we have us,seeking the truth and then speaking to each other we have something they will never have...integrity....all this in the end will come out in the wash but the washing itself is a very painful thing...Like birth, it is messy,painful,ugly,yet it is a most beautiful thing and it is inevitable...light will always outshine darkness and love will conquer hate not by the sword but by our compassion and empathy and our unconquerable pursuit of justice,truth,egalitarianism, and unconditional love will one day be the natural order of things...it is near...it is just around the corner...dont give up....just as it gets darkest... a light like you shines and that is a most encouraging thing,is it not?
