Truth, Torture and The American Way*

“…avoid giving specific responses
to any direct questions on legal issues
likely to come before the Court”

– John Roberts, Supreme Court nominee

i dream the Buddha face offered me
replacing 71 year map of of where
i’ve been the temptation
of appearing as something i am not
alive and well for all citizens of US of A
and whomsoever we profess to protect
around the world take me around the world
as you have done before
now stand and face your foes
now stand and face your partner
tortured truth is black not white
it is not the tail wagging the dog
it is our torch wagging
Lady Liberty turned on her head
turn around don’t drown.
