War is always such a blessing
It never is distressing or depressing.
I know all too well that this is true.
War has been good for me and you.
You proudly give your lives up for the rich.
For us, life never is a bitch.
In a blaze of glory, you go out.
And really, that’s what it’s all about.
The drone operators are so brave
as they send little children to their grave.
Since the world has become a battleground,
the drums of war make a lovely throbbing sound.
Teach your sons and your daughters about their duty.
And one day, when they are dead, we’ll make a movie.
It will honor their brave and noble deeds.
The wounded, we shall see to all their needs.
Through war, we bring peace unto this earth.
And though you break out in dubious peals of mirth,
the last laugh will always be on you,
for none of what is written is ever true.
When we put a lethal weapon in your hand,
and send you to die in a foreign land,
your life means nothing, you should know,
but you never give pause, you just go.
War is not only just a blessing,
to us, it is also quite refreshing,
that you are so willingly prostituted,
and it’s all because you are just too stupid,
to understand that if it were not for you,
no drone would ever strike on cue!

This poem was born thanks to Tubularsock’s latest blog post and what a knock-out it is! If I were you, I would head on over there because when they say that, “The truth shall set you free!” let’s see if indeed that is the case because, CANNON FODDER, WAKE THE FUCK UP! You are not honorable, nor are you brave and you’re certainly not fierce and tough if you’re a drone operator because how is your life on the line? You are sitting thousands of miles away from the target, which happens to be a HUMAN BEING and not a BUG SPLAT that you degenerates refer to them as. And those of you who have killed children, how can you even look at yourself in the mirror, much less at your own children and not see the evil and vile atrocity that is YOU?
And if you are thinking that they are going to make a movie about you, dream on! Oh my bad, they did make a movie about the honorable and the brave and they called it American Sniper. Well isn’t that nice? But guess what? Whoever gets to play your stupid ass in the movie is going to take home a Golden Globe or an Oscar for their performance, but what will you take home? Eh? What’s that? A medal? And you say you need food stamps? Are you fucking kidding me? Get outta here! You don’t need food stamps! The elites pay well for you to do their dirty work for them, don’t they? They don’t? My stars! Ain’t that a bitch! So, let me get this straight. The elite fucks send you to do their dirty work and they pay you peanuts to do it and when some Hollywood bigwigs decides to make a movie about your ‘heroics’. you’re not even invited to give your input, much less get a starring role in it? But then maybe that’s because you are just so severely wounded, you are in no position to even hold your own fork, much less learn your lines. But damn! I didn’t even think of this, the fact that you could be dead and therefore, couldn’t star in a movie about yourself at any rate! Wow! How fucked up is that? And for the poor homeless veterans, are you getting any royalties if the movie is based on your ‘war life’? Yes? No? Indeed, we all ‘NO’ what the answer to that question is or you wouldn’t be homeless.
Seriously, how stupid can you get when you know by now that America will never stop the war machine. America is THE WAR MACHINE! When has America not been the WAR MACHINE? And let me say THIS again. AMERICA, THE WAR MACHINE, COULD NOT BE A WAR MACHINE IF NOT FOR THE CANNON FODDER, THE ELITE’S PROSTITUTES THAT ‘WHORE’ THEMSELVES OUT FOR PEANUTS WHILE THE RICH LAUGH AT YOUR STUPIDITY AND GREEDILY GRAB AND HOARD THE WEALTH THAT THEY ACCUMULATE FROM THE PROFITS OF WAR! War is a booming business for the warmongers. Ask every member of congress. Ask the president. Ask the companies that make the missiles and the drones and the armored vehicles and the military fatigues and all the other military paraphernalia that is required, constantly, to keep the war machine revved up! And please, buy those American flags and just wave ’em back and forth like you just don’t care because guess what? Those who send you off to war, including the president, don’t give a damn about you. That inept, clueless Obama wouldn’t even know how to put an AK-47 together, much less operate a drone. He is your worthless ass cheerleader, cheering you on to your death while he sits back in comfort, waited on hand and foot while you are on active duty guarding poppy plants in Afghanistan. You are away from your families because you are AGAIN, attempting to train Iraqi soldiers how to handle those pesky insurgents that America(CIA) trained. Obama salutes you as though he is doing you a favor. And you stand there smiling and grinning and thinking that you are THE SHIT when in reality, he would have you cleaned off of his shoes just as he would if he had stepped in a pile of shit. Don’t think so! Why are you jobless and homeless if Obama gives a shit? Exactly. Let that marinate!
The sad fact is that this is all a game to those who profit from war. This is all a game to those who send you off to whore your body to them by fighting their wars. Stop being Obama’s whore. He’s already got one. He doesn’t need millions more. Let him and his whore and his VP and John ‘mad dog’ McCain, and John ‘tan man’ Boehner and every other Washington, DC asshole do their own dirty work. Let those who make the war machine possible, do the dirty work; those who make the machines that kill. Let them go. Make them press the button that sends a drone across the world to kill an innocent child, man and woman.
For the cannon fodder prostitutes that make it back all wounded and shit, don’t make yourselves look even worse by allowing them to use you for an infomercial about Wounded Warriors. You just look stupid while they have you begging some stranger to send money to help you get a wheelchair. You chose to go, now deal with it. You’re contemplating committing suicide because you can no longer deal with the hell that is now your mind because of what you’ve done. I can only ask, “Was war a blessing to you?” Do you think Obama is torn over his role in all of this? Do you think that he is up at night, worrying about you? Do you think it even troubles him that as your commander-in-chief, he is ultimately responsible for the deaths of not only every American that gets killed in war, but also every innocent person that gets killed by bombs and missiles and drones that are paid for by me and every other American citizen? This is why your plight is an infomercial because that lying, hypocritical war criminal Obama could give a rat’s ass about you and your family. But go ahead, sign the fuck up, get fucked up and see what happens? Try and find Obama’s ass to send you some relief. And if you die, your family will get a nice American flag to drape over the coffin that will remain closed because what’s inside ain’t looking so good! If it’s ugly, it can’t be shown to the American people. War must forever be removed from US because when it’s not up close and personal, we don’t give a shit! But if it is in the form of a movie, why we are there! American Sniper made how much? American Sniper’ Nears $200 Million in Ticket Sales after 2 weeks. I wonder, did ‘Wounded Warriors’ or ‘Disabled Vets’ contact those who made millions off this movie and ask for donations and if they did, how well were they received? Do you wonder?
