Have You Heard (9/11)


Have you heard? A country's taking the wrong drug, slipping the noose round death, fitting shores in electric wire, defending human rights in jest.

Have you heard? Ground Zero to open in 2009.

The country's ingesting Pantethol, five thousand milligrams in all. Skipping out on the Pavulon dose, straight to Potassium Chloride.

Have you heard? Ground Zero to open in 2009.

A country in this slaughtered age- O! Can you hear the failing noise; bombs and guns; depleting disgrace, chambers filled with a dying face.

Have you heard? Ground Zero to open in 2009.

We longed for more. We yearned. A lighted path, an eternal flame hovering there on golden wing instead, two-way mirror our malign.

Have you heard? Ground Zero to open in 2009.

A country's taking the wrong drug, slipping noose of bloody election, fitting in shackles of mined metal, and governing the self-injection.

Have you heard? Ground Zero to open in 2009.

Have you heard?

Yellow, pinstriped cowardice
Tapping toes, a distraction
Rage, the news attraction
Pure gold, rating's satisfaction The sound of murder is red
Blue's next ~ HATE CRIME REPORTS SURGE IN BRITAIN... "Hate is caused by Fear
Fear is caused by Hate
They feed off one another
End both, end all Wars.
Cease both, Heaven arises." Hate, are you Fear's second cousin? (First cousin.) Are you two close? (BFF's!) ~ ISIS CLAIMS 40 LIVES AT SHIITE SHRINE...
How many more are to be lifted before We rise up? (We need rise up just to get a headcount of those murdered.) It would be far too painful, sorrow comes from the actions of the murderer, the victims draw upon our grief...

THE RISING OF FREEDOM

The rising began and begins from deep within our being, then it brings the collective to an agreement; freedom is free. We are to follow its example and free ourselves from being a slave to “things”. To truly be free, We must agree that freedom is truly for the whole of humankind, for if one is enslaved, so shall We all be…
