George Bush and Human Sacrifice

today is the day the war machine has their picnic
it is the day King George calls for sacrifice
the penguins clap and chant “Oh yes, oh yes,
we can do that!” And in a cartoon
think bubble they say, “Sacrifice is
tossing the dime into the beggar’s cup.”

human sacrifice
pastoralize poverty
proud and dumb

but the children are educated Georgie Porgie
they smell the stench of give-away-pork
they understand the education given them
which promises more money with higher taxes
which feeds the beast of corruption
which turn their backs
to perpetual war…the ultimate dream
of run-away capitalism
these children of W’s darkness
taught themselves

George Bush and Human sacrifice:

“We will send in 20,000 more troops!”
