http://www.afse.org/eyes/

DAMN THIS 21st CENTURY...
And lessons unlearnt...

Sweet Jesus...
A howl of rage...
Surfs Capitol Hill...
Wild and indignant...
We shall be heard...
Goddamit!

Exhibition, Eyes Wide Open:
On The Cost of the Iraq War...

MAKES ME WANNA CRY...

Curl back into my momma's arms...
Escape...
Somewhere warm...
Amniotic...
Pre-9/11...

The silent winds of denial...
Erase memories...
Blowing across a country...
Disembowled by indifference...
By opinion...
By its fallen...

PAINTED WITH THE BLOOD OF OUR EXPENDABLE CHILDREN...
EYES WIDE OPEN...
SO BITTERSWEET...
SO PENETRATING...
So fucking right!

Time to pay the ferryman...
dear Mr President...

Throw in a coin for Brutality...
For...
"To love your country...
Is to die for it..."

Throw in a coin for...
Deception...
And...
Signing their death warrants...

What crazy hell is this?
War...
JFK got it right the first time round...

"
Mankind must put an end to war or war will put an end to mankind..."

Is anyone listening, here...
Too busy counting the fucking coffers...
Greed...
Plain and simple as that...

Orwell's Tomorrow...
All Reptilian smile...
And lamb-to-the-slaughter...

Principals of life and liberty...
Of a country in despair...
A world in decline...
Racing into the arms of tomorrow...
And their own epitaph...
