here in the usa
the democratic party
the republican party

are the left & right wings
of the same scavenging
bird of prey

& we know that by rote

even so vote!
vote for what’s right
by voting for the left

vote against what you deplore

who has perpetrated more terror
abroad & created more terrorists
where there were none before —

even more than the father —
than the son? who or what
is more against actualizing

the so-called “american dream”
for all of us in the u.s.
than george “burning” bush

bald “haliburton” eagle cheney
& their state-of-hate
