The Would Be Nice Part

March 22, 2021

Of an overused well worn cliche

Is its constant repetition renders it

Meaningless therefore useless to say

.

Captain Joe seems to be ending

His public statements with some

Version of God bless our troops

.

As some sort of unstoppable vebal tic

Manifested by the mindless yammering

That freedom is protected by mercenaries

.

Doing corporations biddings to secure

Resources instead of liberating lives

From the grinding wheel of consumption

.

For the Trillion dollars the government

Wastes of your hard earned tax dollars

Towards the military industrial complex

.

Are you aware of any specific skirmish

War or conflict the troops are engaged in

Allegedly protecting your alleged freedom

.

Time’s up…….no.. just a vague notion that

The invisible troop putting themselves in

Harms way for corporate profit resources

.

Gets “special” seatings on airlines plus

Other random discounts for belonging to

A group whose basic job is to kill people

.

Not to maintain some living liberation

Aquired at the point of a gun rather the

Freedom to buy stuff via cheap labor

.

Which if it didn’t exist wouldn’t need anyway

So the cliché continues like a hole in the wall

Behind the doorknob so you know it is there

.

Instead of demanding that fellow humans

Are not only not harmed but fed and sheltered

Sharing a basic dignity that everyone wants

.

“I spent 33 years and four months in active military service and during that period I spent most of my time as a high class muscle man for Big Business, for Wall Street and the bankers. In short, I was a racketeer, a gangster for capitalism.”

.

War is a Racket: The Antiwar Classic by America’s Most Decorated Soldier

.

My unhopeful guess is that Joe’s tic is a

Slow and steady drumbeat march to an

Inevitable preparation for troops usage

.

So when an alleged “need” arises

Society will be psychologically “ready”

Having been given their weakly reminder

.

“Just an observation, maybe I need different glasses.”

.

– Angelo Devlin
