The War On Terror Is But A Ruse - Poem by Ray Lucero

The "War on terror" is but a ruse!
Just another in a series of distractions
Designed to instill fear and to confuse,
Or garner sympathetic n' gullible reactions

"Big brother is watching", as Orwell foretold;
A time when gone would be all "Civil rights"
A time when precious lives were bought n' sold
A time when middle class fed greedy appetites

Wake up, get informed n' get some smarts
‘Fore net surrounds n' drags you down to hell
Don't let *TSA Agents grope your private parts,
Or hotel clerks from spying on their clientele

Change shall come from peaceful revolution
Envision and thereby manifest;
"One love" "One heart" "One solution"

    A war against war seems oxymoronic. Global peace is a state that I think would be desirable by all. Accomplishing that at this point though....... I have no answers (Report) Reply
