Gremlins Stop Artists Freedom Marching - Poem by Terence George Craddock (afterglows echoes of starlight)

gremlins
ripping
apart

innards
pa rts
within

my targeted PC wrecking
my old faithful server serving
political freedoms marching

no internet for about 8 hours
the lengths the brain dead
walking zombies will go to trying

to stop an artist from freedom marching
observe in China government power freaks
lock up the artists and throw away the keys

Funny how they torture tortured artists
Funny how I never realized art reaction CIA fears
Funny Chinese activist artist Ai Weiwei causes

ripples freedom aspirations CIA fears spreading
to other lands within their spheres of influence
lands involving secret oil pacts spies are guarding

never realized until after Arab Spring rocked world powers
