crusader campaigning

“I feel like the flame & you all are the moths” yes
& haven’t we been feeling like moths ever since …
& then on:
”the real answer is found in the hearts of decent caring people
who have heard the call to love their neighbors
as they would like to be loved themselves”
& yes here I’m just quoting GWB &
his true blue “compassionate conservativism”
from some seven years ago when he’d be campaigning
& meanwhile it should have become clear that he’s
been as caring & as compassionate as could be …
& I must confess we have really been
feeling loved in his heart so very much …
so in those times I’d write something like the one below
but then I felt it was probably grossly exaggerated –
well now I let you be the judges:

”god save our planet from GWB office
worst case is not just a word
that devil’s most charming good old boys’ darling
is getting all the credit he needs
from the firm & the clan & all the GOP sheep
may god save our planet indeed

forget all your rights & your wrongs
good bye all your storm watch songs
poor people’s dire hopes going all up in smoke
bushfires’ll be haunting the scene … “

& this guy also said that he was going
to “restore dignity to the White House” – oh well
so I continued:
”devil’s most charming good old boys’ darling
& this is the real neo-cons’ con game
would rake it in for big business & the clan & the firm
& then worst case is not just a word
millions starving … bleeding … dying … – oh well & so what
– but you’re killing the song
if you strangle the bird –
& from GWB office may god please save
our poor tortured planet indeed” …

so now that you’ve finally got
the senate & the house back
we really hope you put it to good use at last
let the word “compassion” that’s
been stolen by these brazen rogues
now regain at least a bit of its real meaning –
& oh yes what about “democracy” then too
& you stand up & help us stop this
obscene insanity running wild – its not just a comedy
& you preserve what little there’s left to be preserved
& let’s hope it’s not too late for us all
& it’s congress instead of con-greed

(in fact we’re all dearly looking forward
to this year’s state of the union address…)
