Plastic Jesus


on him who throws the first insult
and then demands a truce;
on those who order bombs to drop
on citizens "for their liberty;"
on those who bankrupt their own nation
warmongers, greedy for satiation.

Let him who eschews our Constitution
to spy on anyone in our nation
be excluded from his own party's convention,
forbidden to speak and best left unmentioned.

Let those allowing the skies to warm
live to see their grandchildren swarm
round a small bucket of clean water;
those who forgot
they are not
the future.

Let those who feel superior
to those of other races
build themselves an ark;
set sail and take
McCain to navigate
(he glows in the dark.)
