Burn, baby, Burn
I am a joyous spectator
As man kills man
And man kills women
As man kills child
Fascists on the left
Fascists on the right
Religious ideologies
Attempt domination
Hate slaughter takes hold
Like a rampant forest fire
Nobody has safety
The moral high ground
Now below sea level
Bodies lie uncollected
They serve to increase
The levels of hate
And slaughter at an
Alarming rate, but
WAIT!
There is a lull
My disappointment
Increases with time
But after a few short hours
It all begins again
Ammunition now replenished
Black flags, red flags,
National flags
But no white flags
No surrender
No retreat
Mutually assured destruction
No missiles flown
Combat is hand to hand
On the streets
ďWhoís streets?Ē
ĎThe sniperís streetsí
My bunker is secure
I am content
The flames lick
All around me
Fanned by the hate
Normally I would help
But I chose to sit back
In my leather recliner
Pull up a beer and some snacks
On my 60 inch flat screen TV
I watch America burn
Ironically itís
The 4th of July
