Concrete words building up to an Iraq War.
Intelligence gathering upon distilled distortions.
Sobering facts diluted into intoxicating illusions.
Body bag’s reality being hidden from the public.
Aircraft carriers Presidential declaration, a war won.
Strutting Republican right winger in a flight suit.
Vietnam veteran of reserved stay at home politics.

Dismissing Iraq’s entire army to fight against US,
Allies treated as filth, America begging for help.
Weapon of Mass Destruction of Patriot Acts,
Presidential denial of Geneva human right accords.
Misinformation of Halliburton inflated contracts.
Republicans of Watergate moral Christian values,
Imprisoning people without trails on life sentences.

Guantanamo, Abu Ghraib, secret American prisons,
Worldwide ignored national legal rights, avoiding
The American legal system of judicial accounting.
President dictating law from the White House steps.
Weak judicial, legislative branches breaking down
From the abuse and torture on Constitutional truth.
Rainbow championed free press branded traitor liberals.

Damn liberals one must serve a conservative king.
Who never lies, never makes human mistakes for US.
High standard, a pedestal for world opinion ‘n ridicule.
His religion is seen on the very streets of New Orleans
Those faceless homeless hurricane faces of nature wrath
Religious patriotic promises to win the War on Poverty.
Washington cutting off food stamps, Halliburton overruns.

Budgeted pork spending, wealthy investments, aborting schools
Tax abatement for religious segregated schools of social standing.
Fraternity of collegiate country clubs, societies privileged class.
America’s royalty of corporate sponsorship in creative manipulation.
Republican right-wingers of creative American human cloning.
Branding Americans upon ticketed town hall meetings.
W of conservative cars for the War president, he labeled himself!

Pyramid of truth comes from honesty, clarity of words.
Each level supporting the weight of a questioning public.
Erection principles bonded upon strength, not fabrication.
Floors stacking in Constitutional free speech guarantees.
Pressing freedom of a media unleashed finding supporting facts.
Perfection never lies in deceit upon secret closed-door agendas
America open door to fresh air liberated free thinking

Power of truth stacked high on the pyramid’s pinnacle.
Foundation of strength over political lies of fabrication
Presidential words must be the litmus test of freedom
The lie detector must be the public right to question
Question, question, question till the bare truth is shown
Truth so naked nothing is hidden from its view of reality
Words upon a Constitution of respect, honor, and values
America needs no Weapons of Mass Destruction inside lies,

Note: These are rambling words weathering the San Francisco weather, looking out at the San Francisco Pyramid Skyscraper. The point of it on a foundation of truth that every fact was revealed to construct it.
