The World Is Tired Of The Western Whore!

aa-American-Empire-3-12-14

Oh yes, I long for you to die!
You know only too well, the reasons why.

What evil sons of bitches all of you are,
as you deploy your weapons, both near and far.

You scream, “Democracy!” as you drop a bomb.
And you do it with so much aplomb.

You’re a liar, a hypocrite, a thief and a snake.
You murder and plunder, leaving death in your wake.

You’re archaic, obsolete and you’re not needed anymore.
The world is tired of the western whore.

You’re diseased and contagious; someone pull the plug.
There’s no cure for you, no pharmaceutical drug.

Die already and never come back.
The world is tired of your need to attack.

Peace could be had if only you’d die.
No drone would fly through a clear, night sky.

A mother in Pakistan could finally stop crying.
Guantanamo would close and no more spying.

So much would change if you dropped dead.
It’s time to stop the madness; you’re why the whole world has bled.

  1. Your powerful poem recalls another poem/song–Masters of War ~ penned by Bob Dylan. There have been many covers of this song–including a very powerful rendition by Odetta from 1965. Yet its power resonates with contemporary artists as well — hence I’m sharing Ed Sheeran’s performance. I think you’ll ‘hear’ why.

    • Yes, I ‘hear’ why but apparently, those who NEED to ‘hear’ it ain’t listening ’cause we’re still dealing with everything that’s in this song and it ain’t hardly about to stop.

      When will the cannon fodder and everybody else realize that we are ALL expendable and stop feeding the goddamn war machine? When will we understand that the very reasons why they keep people so poor is to try and force them to join the military to die for some shit that ain’t even their fight? When will we finally stop feeding the killing frenzy of the ‘elite’ fucks who start shit and then sit back and watch the grunts and peons die and die and die and their loved ones left behind, cry and cry and cry? For the love of ……!!!!

      Even for a slice of bread to quiet my hunger pangs, I will NOT pick up a weapon and fight no enemy of mine and I have known hunger. I have gone days without a meal and walked to work in sneakers with my feet touching the pavement, but I NEVER once gave a thought to enlisting in the military. Killing for the sake of enriching some white warmonger will never be on my plate, not ever(and no pun intended)!

      • When will it stop?
        It stops when enough people REFUSE to be cannon fodder. When enough people say NO, I won’t torture, rape and murder for the benefit of the power schemes of others. It will stop when ENOUGH of US stand together and say it NO more. It stops when enough of WE–as in the collective US–refuse the demands of the warmongers. There is a tipping point in the ‘numbers’ which is what I mean by ‘enough’—even to stop it.
        I think Mario Savio said it very well even though it was in different context:

        “There is a time when the operation of the machine becomes so odious, makes you so sick at heart, that you can’t take part; you can’t even passively take part, and you’ve got to put your bodies upon the gears and upon the wheels, upon the levers, upon all the apparatus, and you’ve got to make it stop. And you’ve got to indicate to the people who run it, to the people who own it, that unless you’re free, the machine will be prevented from working at all!”

        Sorry for the turn to the videos today–for some reason certain things are coming to my mind in this mode so I’m using it.

        Clearly this time has not YET come regarding the war-mongers. But it can.
