Full Circle

"In 1968, America was a wounded nation. The wounds were moral ones; the Vietnam war and three summers of inner city riots had inflicted then on the national soul, challenging Americans belief that they were uniquely noble and honorable people." Thurston Clarke

FULL CIRCLE

It is nothing new and I find it strange

That history itself had not brought change

Oppressed these days, the people, we

As we struggle to find some dignity

We have lost our face around the world

We're catching all the insults hurled

Yet our president remains stubbornly idle

A stance that is globally suicidal

As terror grips nations one by one

Peaceful existence has become undone

Racial division on our own shores

The unemployed scream for more

But it's nothing new, we never change

And we the people don't find it strange

That a life of terror is on the horizon

And domestic unrest is steadily rising

Terror

"But there's one thing we must be clear about: Terrorism is not the pursuit of legitimate goals by some sort of illegitimate means...whatever the murderers may be trying to achieve, creating a better world certainly isn't one of their goals...instead they are out to murder innocent people." Salman Rushdie

TERROR

Bomb us, maim us, spill our blood

In the name of Allah they said

The hostages eventually take a slug

Or in gruesome videos loose their heads

Overrun the middle east

Taking Christian cities by force

Dancing in celebration over the men deceased

Raping their women with no remorse

Death to Christians, death to Jews

Did Allah really want what extremists believe?

With stolen weapons that they use

They will leave no survivors to grieve

They are parasites who devour us silently

As they infiltrate our cities

They are bombers who emerge and kill us violently

They are millions with no pity

No Time for Golf

"If you respond to terrorism by appeasement thinking somehow you can tame them then you are not playing with a full deck Mr. Obama." JTD

NO TIME FOR GOLF

They target you as you are sleeping

In tunnels they go creeping

There are bombs strapped tightly around their waists

Happy to die if you are erased

Infidels alive are the ultimate sin

It's their life's goal to do us in

Our daily progression is to live in fear

That they will cut our throats from ear to ear

Obama just golfs another round

While generals plead to double down

Why must our leader appease them?

It is paramount to treason

Starving children in the mountains dwell

Kidnapped women serve in a living hell

The men are tortured, shot and killed

Yet our president has not had his fill

It is time to stop avoiding this war

With terrorists knocking down our doors

Release the hawk from his peaceful cage

The time has come that we engage

Obama hear your generals' pleas

Terror's no longer just over seas

Put the woods and irons away

And vacation on some other day

Injustice

"Justice in the life and conduct of the state is possible ONLY as first it resides in the hearts and souls of citizens."

INJUSTICE

What great injustice has happened here

Within our civil social sphere

Did it touch your hearts to this degree

That violent reaction accompanies thee?

Ignore the truth, forget the reason

The actions have risen to higher treason

Who died tonight? What does it matter?

Will violence make it any better?

The world is round and has no sides

Yet people fall for vicious lies

Their lot in life of violence brings

That cross them once and someone hangs

What is in the hearts of some

That retribution will be done?

Without a trial, without the facts

Ignorance led them to vicious acts

Truth

"Society can exist only on the basis that there are some amount of polished lying and that no one says exactly what he thinks." Lin Yu tang

"Just as truth is the optimal and most respected virtue, truth can also be a catalyst for disdain, and public unrest. Truth cannot always be accepted at face value and people react in violence when the truth does not suit their purpose." MMB

The Inheritance

"Where there are too many policemen, there is no liberty. Where there are too many soldiers, there is no peace. Where there are too many lawyers, there is no justice." Lin Yutang

THE INHERITANCE

Can you picture a future for our survivors

Kept in line by an organizer

More policemen with anxious guns

Daring anyone to try to run

Our soldiers devoid of bleeding hearts

Set upon countries torn apart

It has become easy for them to shoot and kill

Indoctrinated beyond free will

Legal remedy a standing joke

It's been years since We the People spoke

It will be the world we left them, there is no denying

People will never live again, they are here for dying

DroneFingers

Sick

Lin Yutang..."Today we are afraid of simple words like goodness and mercy and kindness. We don't believe in good old values anymore... and that's why the world is sick."

SICK

Riots in the street

Blood at their feet

Rapes and murders a daily fare

Hatred brewing everywhere

Bombs are killing more innocents

In recent mid-east incidents

They beheaded an American hostage today

And shot several children along the way

The death of a black teen is a mere excuse

They say a bigot lit the fuse

The policeman had nowhere to turn?

Don't get the facts, just watch him burn

The headlines are filled with the world's unrest

Whatever happened to "Father Knows Best"?

"The Brady Bunch" were replaced with thugs

When bullets fly there are no hugs
