Treasure Island

Tim caffery

(02/09/1978 / San Fernando Valley, Los Angeles, CA)

Really? Yes, Really.

The German Defense Minister,
A victim of the Nazis,
Has called the War in Afghanistan,
An asymetrical global threat,
To human security,
As great or mabey better,
Than all of World War 2,
So now what do YOU do?
Peace as preached,
By M L King,
Malcolm X and JFK,
Lenny Bruce,
H.D. Thoreau,
Nam Myoho Renge Kyo,
You have to read,
To really know,
What you weren't taught,
What Society faught,
The truely free solution,
Human Revolution,
Gandhi did it,
And so can I,
So can you,
So now what are you gonna do?
(Comment made at an international Conference in Halifax '09, in a speech delivered following U.S. Defense Secretary, Robert Gates' Speech requesting additional global support for the current U.S. military campaign.) What is Patriotism/Humanism
