Poetry about politics and war
    #1448761 - 04/11/03 04:28 AM (13 years, 7 months ago)

Even

Nothing is even, even this line
I am writing, even this line I am waiting in,
waiting for permission to enter
the country, the house, the room.
Nothing is even, even now
that laws have been drawn and peace
is discussed on high tables,
and even if all was said to be even
I would not believe for even I know
that nothing is even ? not the trees,
the flowers, not the mountains or the shadows?
our nature is not even so why even try to get even
instead let us find an even better place
and call it even.

- Nathalie Handal


A Light

they that know
the truth of it
with such brilliant color
in bright eyed remembrance
its breath upon the fire
a light
that feeds
the very birth of it
shattering
into the quiet chaos
like some bright bell
in still silence
a moment
to change the world

-Anita Govan

Bubble Girl Song
Wednesday Kennedy
I shop with my white girl immunity and i?m safe till i get on that plane
I want to stuff myself stupid and go back to sleep
branded right down from my head to my feet
yeah it?s fat and obscene my american dream
but you?re only jealous cause you want the same
tell me?
Who?s gonna die for my SUV
come on?
Who?s gonna die for my SUV
And i?m thinking i might get a facelift
because that might make the world seem more fresh
because it?s not been the same since the day the world changed
and the war cry keeps beating it's tired old refrain
I mean how can i shop in this negative frame.
who knows what?ll be the fashion next week?
Tell me
who?s gonna die for my SUV
come on
who?s gonna die for my SUV
And it?s just not the same as it used to be
the mcmuffins just aren?t quite as sweet
and the tips have dried up and the times nearly up
on the joker who?s taking the heat
And i want another mcsunrise and i want another mcsweet
a mcfuck, a mcstock, a car built like a truck
a gas guzzling rip roaring empire?s last wank
come on?
Who?s gonna die for my SUV
tell me?
Who?s gonna die for my SUV

WE BELIEVE
in Democracy.
But without evidence, we will still proclaim you Guilty.
We enjoy playing global Judge and Jury. We will stridently
enforce Accountability
as we avoid our own disclosures or Transparency.
We fully support the concept of Liberty
(with exceptions for those with whom we Disagree).
We prefer to call it War and not Brutality.
We strive to promote human Dignity
but call you Evil, Liar, warn of your Duplicity.
We have smart bombs but will risk civilian Casualties.
We joined the U.N. but like acting Unilaterally.
Let us avoid discussing our Economy,
ensure oil for our mighty S.U.V.s.
How dare anyone question our Authority,
our blatantly impatient, greedy Policies?
One nation under our own Divinity,
we hold that might makes right
and not Diplomacy. Prepared to march, we will ignore
all calls for Peace.
You would not bend. We gave you time. Now you will bleed.
We are America. We believe in Democracy.
- Kasandra Larsen

Against the war
Susan McMaster

Against the war I?ll refuse
to be insulted today.
Against the war I?ll smile
at my boss till he smiles back.
Against the war I?ll recite
this poem on Wellington Street,
drive my car not at all,
gossip about love,
play F?r Elise badly.
Against the war I?ll take
a break from doing bills
to watch the squirrels play
on the wires outside my room,
sign up for Italian,
listen closely to a child,
joke about the cold
with the newly arrived PhD.
who sweeps my office floor.
Against the war I?ll laugh
at Bush?s foot-in-mouth,
make love in the afternoon,
send clothes to St. Vincent de Paul,
learn to spell Qur?an,
phone up my daughter,
light a birch fire
and turn off the furnace,
shovel the walk for the mailman,
clean up after our old cat,
leave the door unlocked.
Against the war I?ll act
today, as I can, for peace.

Brainstorm
Bruce A Jacobs
We?ve got to
Um,
Protect families children
Weapons mass destruction
Yeah, that?s it,
A war fought from
An SUV. Stomp Saddam
In time for soccer practice.
Trust me, they?ll buy it. Uh-oh:
North Korea.
Shit. Okay: Um,
It?s different.
Help me here, Colin.
Possession isn?t everything.
No proof he?ll use them.
Huh? Contradiction? Well,
Shit. You tell me
How to duck a fucking A-bomb.
Okay. Okay. Think
Story. It?s all in the
Telling:
Mustard gas becomes
Weapons Mass Destruction.
New Hiroshima becomes
Matter of Discussion.
See? We'll rev up an SUV,
Splat Saddam, give Kim the finger
And peel out. He?ll never dare.
Damn! That?s it. That?s definitely
It.

Peace Poem
Charles Potts
"The young men and women standing against the war
have made a green place in my heart," sang Robert Duncan
protesting the Vietnam War in a former time but in the same place.
The earth doesn?t need us; we need the earth.
Let us try to act as holy as we?d like to think we are.
War is the attempt to control the economic future by force.
There are better ways to be secure than by making paranoia public policy.
Intellect and moral integrity are under assault and must survive.
Where the powerful sleep in fits and starts
with their troubled dreams of death,
the death of their system with its interlocking privileges,
no amount of security devices can ever make safe.
They want a stage to pose upon
from the depths of their gated communities
where they can throw fear into the hearts of others
to eclipse the fear in their own.
We are safe in love with truth
willing to march, live and die by and for it.
Peace is the way you live your life.

?Christendom?
Graywyvern
there was once a king
a stupid king
son of a king
and he ruled a great empire
greatest of his time
and a pious king was he
so pious
he wanted to punish
everyone that didn't believe
and he made a department
to spy on his own people
this pious king
but it was war he loved
constant war
war with no object
he made war till he exhausted
the wealth of this richest empire
he ruined his country
to utter bankruptcy
and it became
the most backward country in Europe
and after this king
whose name was Philip the Second
a Golden Age of art & literature
was snuffed out
like it never existed
and it was three hundred years
three hundred years
till Spain produced anything good again

Untitled
d.m.
Since the death
of 500,000 Iraqis goes unmourned
so I will not mourn them
but continue drinking to excess.
Though it has been written
that under the eternal threat of war
children gain anxiety disorders
and are found banging their head against floor and other available cement ?
I will not mourn them.
I will not mourn the dying and deformed
because an idealist cannot be happy.
And I want to be happy.
So I will laugh and marry
and continue drinking to excess.

Bertolt Brecht & Kurt Weill
What keeps mankind alive?

You gentlemen who think you have a mission
To purge us of the seven deadly sins
Should first sort out the basic food position
Then start your preaching, that?s where it begins

You lot who preach restraint and watch your waist as well
Should learn, for once, the way the world is run
However much you twist or whatever lies that you tell
Food is the first thing, morals follow on

So first make sure that those who are now starving
Get proper helpings when we all start carving
What keeps mankind alive?

What keeps mankind alive?
The fact that millions are daily tortured
Stifled, punished, silenced and oppressed
Mankind can keep alive thanks to its brilliance
In keeping its humanity repressed
And for once you must try not to shriek the facts
Mankind is kept alive by bestial acts
