The New American Way Poem by Eric Cockrell

quit banging the drums of war!
war was never meant to be
a means of economic survival...
much less profitable....
human lives mean nothing!
freedom and democracy
are a hoax... a drug
administered through the
late night tv news....
we're not trying to liberate anyone,
it's all profit and loss....
profit to the War Machine...
loss... of lives, any sense of morality
and/or human decency.

it's easy to sell....
just tell the people they're
our enemies... that they're
out to get us.
you dont have to prove
no weapons of mass destruction
needed... just the fear
created by implanting the thought!

profit justifies anything...
the new American Way!
