On Facebook today you can see the signs that many activists are feeling that it is hopeless to take on the military machine and stop carnage like in Gaza. They care deeply and are outraged, but like me they have no easy answers.

It's going to take a mind shift for most Americans to step out and demand an end to the utter madness being perpetrated by our government which is run by corporations. Classic fascism...or call it feudalism. We've all been there before.


First they came
for the communists
but I was not a commie
so no big deal

Then they came
for the Palestinians
I was sympathetic
but that 'Hamas' thing
gets sticky,
cause we don't want
to be accused of being
a terror monger,
now do we?

Then they came for
the folks on Jeju
yeah I noticed them
always dancing
caught my eye
but who cares?
what can I do?

Then they came
for the Malaysians
what's the deal there?

make them hate
the Russians and Chinese?
They have to choose sides now
or they get flipped next

in the White House
and Brussels
and London
and 'Gay Paree'
plans are hatched
to keep the white
western oligarchs
in control

This war
is a war
between oligarchs
for final control
of what is left
after they dump
the rest of us
into the shitter

So yeah I see
it coming
like a f*cking
freight train
when your neck is on the tracks
I hear it coming
for sure
