The New Year Will Bring A New War!

never ending war

The New Year will bring a new war,
because there is no other way,
for man to settle his differences,
and so it continues to this day.

When have we ever been at peace?
Can someone give me a date and time?
I’m not looking for a miracle,
just an ever hopeful sign.

If I don’t give you what you want,
then you exert your will,
over me and what is mine.
And for this, you choose to kill.

Those armed goons you send,
I counter with my own.
As we fight to the very end,
the results are already known.

There are solders standing waiting,
they stand waiting to answer the call.
And we make sure they know their duty
is to fight wars that will never stall.

I hear the echo of the flintlocks,
and I see the flash of bayonets.
Now it’s missiles, grenades and drones,
fired by young West Point cadets.

The scenery never changes.
It’s the same old battlefield.
There is smoke and there is carnage,
and soldiers dying from wounds not healed.

So look forward to this New Year,
as we continue the trends of the old.
We don’t want to live in peace.
Peace lies dead in a grave so cold.

Not to end 2014 on such a sour note, but I am a realist and I do not believe that somehow, an epiphany will hit our ‘world leaders’ and that they will come to an understanding that we all share this planet. They seem recklessly and seemingly hell bent on sending us headlong into another world war and if that happens, I really don’t see how any of us will make it through, completely unscathed, if at all.

Peace? We don’t even have a ‘piece’ of it.

Do You Think I Give A Shit?

obama's back as he boards airforce one

Bomb the hell out of Iraq.
Now, y’all just watch my back,
as I board new Air Force One
and the grunts will get it done.

They don’t think, they just do
whatever I tell them to.
I can’t ask for more than that.
They’re just a bug for me to splat.

Oh, I wax and wane real good,
about all the things I should
and then I turn around and spit.
Do you think I give a shit?

As Obama boards Air Force One for his uh hum… much needed vacation on Martha’s Vineyard, the U.S. is bombing Iraq, yet again and the only reason, I said, the only reason that we are again, bombing Iraq is over some shit that we initially unleashed there by starting a war in Iraq based on a WMDs LIE!! There was no ISIS, ISIL or al-Qaeda in Iraq before we initially bombed the hell out of Iraq. The Iraqi people had done not a goddamn thing to the U.S. and the U.S. stands for Useless Shithole as we ain’t fucking united in this shithole.

And what the fuck has been settled between Israel and the Palestinian people? Not a goddamn thing, but it’s ALL good ’cause it’s VACATION TIME!

“It’s All Humanitarian!”

While the champagne’s chillin’
and the steaks are grillin’,
thought I’d type for a spell
and oh, what the hell!

We’re bombing in Iraq
’cause we got it like that.
It’s all humanitarian
we’re such a good Samaritan!

As Gaza gets shelled
Netanyahu ain’t jailed
for genocide and all
’cause Hamas just won’t play ball.

Nor will ISIS or ISIL, trained by the CIA
and Iraq’s security forces all went MIA.

Obama said to Martha, “It’s my vacation time!”
“That shit in Iraq, it’s such a fucking crime!”
“And Palestine, you go to hell and take the Gaza Strip”
“Israel, see to it and don’t let up or slip!”
“We’ve invested American dollars to help you out, my friend!”
“So hop to getting it done and as with Gaza, here’s the end!”

While we here in America are attending a baseball game and gearing up for football and wining and dining, ‘exceptional’ shits that we are, people all over the world are getting fucked up by some shit that we started and either just can’t leave the hell alone or are busy instigating it by gifting millions to Israel to genocide all over the Palestinian people while we bomb Iraq for humanitarian reasons as stated by our piece of shit hypocritical, self-appointed, Emperor despot Obadrone, himself! Hail to the Chief! Emperor ’cause bombing IS the humanitarian thing to do!

“The extremists’ “campaign of terror against the innocent, including the Yazidi and Christian minorities, and its grotesque and targeted acts of violence bear all the warning signs and hallmarks of genocide,” said U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry. “For anyone who needed a wake-up call, this is it.”

Wow! That’s some deep shit right there! John Kerry is against genocide! Can you believe it? Uh…NO! Can you say, “GAZA!!!!????, ANYONE?! And as if what John Kerry, our Secretary of State said wasn’t bad enough, Obama had this to say,

Obama authorizes air strikes to prevent Iraq ‘genocide’

President Barack Obama says he has authorized US air strikes on Iraq to prevent a “genocide” by Islamist extremists against minorities.

So, Obama authorized bombs to prevent genocide in Iraq while giving Israel’s Netanyahu a free pass in bombing and COMMITTING genocide against the Palestinian people! The hypocrisy of the Obama Administration knows no bounds! Unbefuckingbelievable!!!!!! Apparently, there’s ‘good’ genocide and ‘bad’ genocide and the U.S. government gets to pick which is which and ain’t that a bitch!!! Fucking gag me with a goddamn bomb, why doncha!!!!!

Bombing people over and over has always solved SO goddamn much and if you can name one goddamn thing GOOD that a bomb has achieved, then leave your comment and don’t even bother commenting on how bombing the Japanese ended World War II because I’ve read time and time again, that Japan was defeated before they got hell unleashed on them by means of two atomic bombs. Goddamn it!

For nearly seven decades, the American public has accepted one version of the events that led to Japan’s surrender. By the middle of 1945, the war in Europe was over, and it was clear that the Japanese could hold no reasonable hope of victory. After years of grueling battle, fighting island to island across the Pacific, Japan’s Navy and Air Force were all but destroyed. The production of materiel was faltering, completely overmatched by American industry, and the Japanese people were starving. A full-scale invasion of Japan itself would mean hundreds of thousands of dead GIs, and, still, the Japanese leadership refused to surrender.

But in early August 66 years ago, America unveiled a terrifying new weapon, dropping atomic bombs on Hiroshima and Nagasaki. In a matter of days, the Japanese submitted, bringing the fighting, finally, to a close.

On Aug. 6, the United States marks the anniversary of the Hiroshima bombing’s mixed legacy.

…and so, bomb’s away! Here’s to genocide, destruction, chaos, pandemonium and some more shit!!!

The Bombs Of Billionaires

Gaza

You tried to shield her from the bombs
when you cradled her in your arms.

And now both of you are dead.
Is Israel’s thirst for blood now fed?

You loved her ’til the end
that poor child that never sinned.

Innocent blood must be avenged
and I don’t care who I offend.

The cries of the dying all went ignored
while we prayed unto the Lord.

What good are all our prayers
against the bombs of billionaires?
