as the vultures gather to suck beautiful Venezuela dry

now that Chavez is dead,

the american oil companies

chomping at the bit

begin to salivate & lick their lips,

seething

with the foam

of potent country-gutting

rabies---

for while he was alive,

Venezuela was one of the only

countries left,

who resisted the empire's attempts to

penetrate it & whore it out to the

highest capitalist bidder---

with Chavez dead,

not only will the oil soon be drained from

within the borders of beautiful

Venezuela,

but so will die the social programs that Chavez

instilled,

those that had been used to combat the

extreme poverty which exists in the country,

those that the governments before Chavez did nothing to

prevent.

so goes Chavez,

so goes a bastion of anti-empire,

so goes a man who pushed Chomsky's work at the

United Nations,

so goes a man who championed the bloc that

would resist the swallowing up of

Latin America by the

empire.

yes,

the vultures are hungry,

they are perched & ready---

rather than create green alternatives to the

reliance on oil,

they will suck every last drop &

make the world do their bidding,

creating a negative media firestorm

to shed hate upon a man who can no longer

defend himself,

just as they will the next who steps up to resist.
