Too Close To The Mirror

March 20, 2023

To see our ugly reflection

Staring us in the scarred face

Under cold fluorescent lights

We turn away to point a finger

For the crimes against humanity

With the International Criminal Court

When we see what Putin does

To the Sovereign Ukrainians

But when Bush did the same

To the Iraqis, that didn’t look as bad

Because from that there perspective

It was done for God and country

“Former President George W. Bush has finally, if unintentionally, admitted his error in invading Iraq nearly 20 years ago. While attempting to scold Russian President Vladimir Putin for his ruthless invasion of Ukraine, Bush accidentally condemned his own actions.

At an event at the George W. Bush Presidential Center in Dallas on Wednesday, the former president called out “the decision of one man to launch a wholly unjustified and brutal invasion of Iraq.” He quickly corrected himself, saying, “I mean Ukraine,” but he proceeded to chuckle and mutter “Iraq, too” under his breath to laughter from the audience. It’s true that had his gaffe not reflected reality, it would have almost been comedic. But as a child of Iraqi migrants, the distasteful sniggering by the man who launched a war resulting in at least 800,000 estimated Iraqi deaths and the displacement of millions more is nothing short of despicable.”

We knew deep down inside like the oil wells

Halliburton was about to dig it was

For our own self interest of the “economy”

But, where else would we be without

Our AMSOC (AMerican SOCIalism)

The clever ruse of AMIMP (imperialism)

On the redistribution of wealth

Back and forth between the government

Of connected in cahoots corporations

Disguised as defending democracy by

Building weapons of mass destruction

All the way from aircraft carriers

To bombs, bulldozers and body bags

Keeping the Proletariat busy with “jobs”

So they can in turn buy more stuff

With their meager after tax leftovers

Meanwhile it is all laid out in

“The Prosecution of an American President”

By Vincent Bugliosi

Just need one Attorney’s General to file an indictment….

George essentially confessed in that Freudian slip, less than a year ago. Grab some handuffs. Quite sure there are no statute of limitations on war crimes.

Anyone…..yoohoo…..I’m waiting……

Ah fuck.

Then we would see what is in the mirror.

Which technically we wouldn’t even see

At least not for very long thanks to all

Of the distraction make-up we apply

In the face of scandal, immigration

Abortion, fake fear gun confiscation

Race relation and gender manipulations

Any attempts to fix farcical education

Oops, almost forgot…….

“If you become
The leader of the land,
For murder is the sport
Of the elected,

And you don’t need to lift
A finger of your hand

Because it’s murder by numbers, 1, 2, 3,
It’s as easy to learn as your ABC.
Murder by numbers, 1, 2, 3,
It’s as easy to learn as your A, B, C, D, E,………”

The Police

Millions dead, on our watch, that you and I paid for, with our tax dollars, at the very least makes us unwitting accomplices. Maybe that is why our beer drinking buddy George won’t serve any time, because then we would have to also.

“I write to expunge the darkness so
That someday light may shine through”
