Become A Person Of Value: Vote Peace


It was Albert Einstein who said
'Try not to become a man of success,
but rather try to become a man of value.'

I forgive my humble point, fail to see value,
in nations press gang forcing their top league
nuclear physicists into race creating insane;

weapons of mass destruction to obliterate
foreign flag civilian cites filled with victim
men women children military maps targeted;

propaganda sold to herd morons tax supporting,
believing in first strike winnable nuclear holocaust.
'M.A.D. not meaning insane but Mutual Assured

Destruction.20 megatons a bomb equals
a thousand Hiroshima's.' Manhattan Project
Trinity Test Gadget plutonium bomb atop;

a 100-foot tower is ghost nuclear nightmare haunting
threatening human race survival doomed to 'dumb'
prepared (deep underground military bunkers) elite;

classified selected citizens living in new age cities,
your plebs tax dollar paid for, never knew existed?
Hide in earthquake proof caves below molten seas.

War sick skull & bones millions of dollars a minute
industry playing Russian Roulette with Peacemaker
nuclear Missiles political leadership new world order!

I reaffirm what I proclaimed in 1984 world vision.
'Bacteria, from millions of unburied dead,
produce all manner of admirable epidemics.

Your immune system - ruined by radiation
you are at merciless mercy of horrific plagues.
The luckless living envy the ashen dead.'

It was Albert Einstein who said
'Try not to become a man of success,
but rather try to become a man of value.'

I think I'm onto it, victims of vision dreams, live this formula.
It is wrong to stockpile play with arsenals of nuclear weapons!
Illuminati kill peacemakers Gandhi, Malcolm X, Doctor King.

'The flash of the president's pen
deals with the life of men.
Starting a war settling a score

all happens so far away.
(Invasion Iraq Afghanistan Libya
puppet oil wars killing your sons.)

Why gamble your life away
why drink into the grave
why sign the death of an age?

It takes a man to say he's wrong
a man to stop the bomb;
any imbecile can push a button.'

Poem of the Day

poet Algernon Charles Swinburne

I hid my heart in a nest of roses,
Out of the sun's way, hidden apart;
In a softer bed than the soft white snow's is,
Under the roses I hid my heart.
