Oily Dreams

Richie ain’t worried
about the price of gas for their limousines,
SUV’s, or otherwise gas guzzlers.
They might worry about their slaves
not being able to afford to get to work.
Politicians have a propensity
of proffering the false pretentiousness
that they know everything
…oh how solidly they believe
they were made in God’s image
ergo their actions are Godlike authority
to control all natural resources
Richie Richie go away
do not return another day
this Earth, per se,
et al that lives upon it, is suffocating.
…don’ worry, be happy,
like Pinocchio’s nose
driping with lies
the ultimate end of graspy greed is
(and all of human history proves it)
is to fall – to drown
in Oily Dreams.

Live Earth Corporate Death Dickens County Texas

)Live Earth Concert

Foxy News Laura Ingles goes thru concert garbage
to report non recycled items and claims
the concert’s making a notable carbon foot print
as if she cares
or as if any Fox News Rupert cares
to do anything besides dig and spatter
those who would save us from ourselves

)The Birth and Death of Corporate America

early 1800’s – Corporate law focused on protecting public interest
closely regulated by the states – investors given equal say in corporate governance
mid 1800’s – voided investors equal say (Rockefeller Standard Oil as “trust”
and Carnegie steel as “limited partnership”)
1980’s – public owned services and enterprises sold to corporations / deregulation reduced public-interest
conglomerates – shareholder control diminished and directors assumed more
2000’s accounting scandals brought down Enron and WorldCom
downsizing, contracting-out, off-shoring, reduced labor cost
Corporations assumed human rights.
now is a good time for these non-humans to experience death throes
which will occur when we the people follow Ralph Nader’s suggestion,
“Gotta hear the rumble of the people”

)Dickens County Texas’ Private Jail

where a prisoner would rather be dead
than live in slop and abuse…
now that Alaska made
every thing Not bigger in Texas
where a president can be assassinated
and send us a Bush
who can’t speak proper English
but would make it our national language
in a country where presidential hopefuls
are dialing for Corporate dollars*
we have prisons for profit
health for profit
and the most blasphemy ever
privation (ergo profit driven) of Water!

*quote from Ralph Nader

Still Crazy After All Those Years

lived nearly always
in a nation and house divided upon itself
remembering as recent as yesterday
the Great Bloody American Revolution
which was the gift of laws describing
exactly a Bloodless Revolution
all it ever took takes will take
are equals in ever way
to human rights deemed undeniable
after two hundred and thirty-two years of practice
we are STILL divided
no longer between exactly north and south
1) the leisure rich and the working poor
yes we remember corrupt union leaders
as well we see corrupt corporation leaders
as we hear those contenders to “the throne”
collecting contributions by the millions
insane is Patriotic American Apple Pie
crazy is how it feels
to live in a world where Money is God!
2) the televangelists grow round and rich
after two thousand and seven years
the money changers are still in the temple
that has been infected with perpetual war
between the sexes and between nations

Revolution: Past, Present, Future

British General Henry Clinton:
“it is necessary to gain the hearts and subdue the minds of America.”

how proudly do you stand now oh Yalies?
you graduated from your business school
lame brain Bush who obviously believed
he could win minds by subduing them
with talking points and spinning heads
who’s pointed head is spinning now?
who quacks like a duck in devil speak
hides, then hides, and hides again
Keith Olberman called it right on
on the eve of this 231st celebration
“Be honorable men, Mr. President
and Mr. Vice President, step down,
now.” (Nixon showed you how)
Hey Dick and George whadda ya say?
How many children will you kill today?

Deceitful Sunday


Ally McBeal Dick Chenny
Hollywood like ABC
Brothers and Sisters
covered in ashes make it real
a real real reality show
suggesting every red blooded American male
thus must sign up for the military
to go to Iraq
aka aka yak
the belazububs
owning media
still believe they can turn
we the people
back into follow the leader
ignore that man behind the curtain
spouting thunder bolts of fear
call it Deceitful Sunday
and check the polls on Monday.
