Therapy Of Veteran’s Poetry
Winds of the minds writing roller coaster ruts,
Depressions casting shadows in political cuts,
War fabrications upon “Lies” of Intelligence,
“Truth” creating scars haunting accountability.
Vietnam Vets come home to nagging questions.
Napkins cry inside words trying to seek answers.
Pen marks tearing horizontally wide white canvas,
Incisions from recesses so deep in fermented hazes.
Soldier castaways being denied the right of respect,
Washington of looking the other way in shame.
The sham perpetuated by White House promises,
Soldiers of the Living Suicide of surviving war.
Oh, Hail the Presidents sending off minor patriots
Denying them the privilege of full adulthood.
We must protect them at all cost from drinking,
But teach them how to kill the enemy combatant.
Redefined wars, where torture means Abu Graiths,
Guantanamo Justice without due process Constitution,
Dissolving the Geneva convention moral objections,
Bush Wars after Vietnam lessons of body bags.
Vietnam venting Home Sweet Homes therapy
Banned by Corporate America 24/7 Poetry pain.
Right to Work Alabama to silence veteran workers
Denied the nails of fingers wailing on a pen scars.
Must Americans live muted to Mission Accomplished
Silent to Halliburton, Blackwater ‘n war carpetbaggers?
People profiteering in human misery abusing other souls,
Soldier trained zombies that must come home to cry.
Deny the pen of war as obscenity needing censorship.
Hide the coffin tears of Pentagon human accountability.
For in each coffin lived a true American Patriot dream,
Those never serving scorn them as expendable thoughts.
Vietnam Veteran of Poetry’s Corporate Termination
Ride your civil Liberties high again in Free Speech.
Is it a coincidence that you look like Ben Franklin
That America needs to feel the Constitutional core again!
How many Iraqi and Afghanistan napkins will surrender
To the depth of the quagmire cesspool needing exposed,
So that the heartbeats can breathe again in fresh air smiles,
That civilian Free Speech must rant and vent without fear?
Mercedes why did you ban my American Independent home?
Does not workers have a right to home Freedom and Democracy?
Or are they allowed secret edicts that apply to workers homes?
Mercedes you Terminated me back into Constitutional Poetry,
Where one spreads wings of De-Termination on Mission Impossible.
Note: So how many Corporations within America were Bush intimidated, like the Telecom Companies? What threats were made to force a Totalitarian White House control over Wall Street? How much did the White House restrict the Civil Liberties of American Free Speech workers? How many emails were filtered from going to the media? How many were simply never sent? Yes, never has an Administration failed the core of the Constitution so much, destroyed the scales of Justice, and made war on the separation of power doctrine.
These Bohemian Conglomerate Power Broker only seek the New World Order of Corporate Royalty. They do not believe in equality or diversity, they seek to make a new working slave class without any human or civil rights, where as CEO owners they rule over the world from Dubai. Yes, this is hard to believe but then why are Bohemian politicians trying to bankrupt, and break America will of divine unity.
This is a Vietnam rant that opens up ideas that is why some want to ban them. Are they 100% correct, of course not, it is up to every individual to research their own answer and vent it.
There are a lot of Veterans that need to rant onto paper to release the monster building within. They can then destroy it, store it, or share it as they wish. The therapy is to get it out of your system as a cesspool infestation.
After being banned by Mercedes from writing Poetry, I could have let things build, retreated further inside this solitary shell, given up with the world, or defied them until that Terminated me for Poetry. So sad one has to give up the thing they love, the thing that brings tranquility inside them, conforming in order to fit Human Resources unwritten policy mold. Can you ask Mercedes to never again ban a workers Home Sweet Home, without due process rights of the courts? Do not threaten them but use friendly peaceful persuasion. Maybe later they can Re-Terminate me for a different agreed to reason, like mutual dissatisfaction; with them giving the rights back to Worker Civil Liberties Free Speech homes.
It seems Bush Corporations have invaded the “We the people” rights to speak out from our own property, or dwellings. That in order to be employed, we must give up the Constitution, the Bill of Rights, Civil Liberties, and where everything that make US Independent Americans. Soon signs will state “No Liberals Need Apply Here” like the faded “For Colored Only” bathrooms of the Old South.
It is time that the Veterans have to right to rant about the Bush Wars without “At Will” censorship. We are not yet a Corporate Bohemian nation and our History ‘n Heritage has “We the people” Birthrights in “God Bless America” individuality of equality and diversity of “Made in America” value systems. We do not burn a human effigy in front of a Owl with robes and hoods.
I am dognapping for friends, it saves on the Motel bills of De-Terminated Freedom and Democracy of writing American’s diverse Artmosphere. Why, I something think I need my whole retirement for Cheney Gas inflation, and Bush retirement recession of the dollar. However, I fear the Republicans will tax Liberals for their Free Speech.
