humpty has moved up to the wall &

all the kings horses, men, soldiers, fighter planes and


are focused on further strangling iran,

they are denying a palestinian state

they are backing the further settlements of israel

they are focused on running for the throne of the

empire in 2012

and as business as usual continues

they march on as cogs in the disturbing,

self-destructive machine

which has not learned a thing from history.


but the opening of the eyes within the empire

at the civilian level

is beginning to occur &

people are finally in the streets

people are throwing their fists in the air &

the blood is pumping in this

seizing of the day---

one might even go so far as to say that

some may in fact be ready to fight.


if humpty & his men are still claiming that

“what we have here, is a failure to communicate,”

then they better get their megaphones &

they better open their history books---

one should wonder if marie antoinette’s neck was


lotioned up

when she went to the guillotine,

or if the nicholas II (bloody nicholas) & his family

were ready

for what came to them in the ipatiev house that night

in mid-july---

while the mainstream media are finally forced to cover

what is


the fuse has been lit in other cities.


when the eyes open,

a person is able to look around &

in this brilliant, beautiful and monumental moment,

one can look to see others who have finally had


whose eyes are now opened too

and whose ambition is full of fire,

intelligence &



this is happening.
