SEPTEMBER 11, 2001 (A JUSTIFIABLE ACT OF RETALIATION)

Summary

Since 1948, America’s world policy has been a world-domination policy, playing Monopoly with real countries and real people. Tyrants like the Shah of Iran and Saddam Hussein have been put into power by the U.S., the Ayatollah Khomeini was kidnapped by the CIA and held illegally for 30 years! And the list goes on. So when Maddog Bush said on TV, “Geez we be nice, why don’t people like us!” frankly I did not know whether to laugh or cry. As Imran Khan said after the World Trade Tower disaster, the U.S.A. needs to find out why so many people world wide hate them and not just say, “Geez we be nice.” In fact the U.S.A. has been nothing short of monstrous in the way it has treated the Far And Middle East over the last sixty-plus years!

Three thousand dead in New York as
Two towers tumble to the ground,
Many more to die soon
As a holy war is sworn.

“You’re for us or against us!”
Is Junior Bush’s feeble chant,
So most nations in the world
Give vent to evil cant.

“We’re real nice people, gosh”
Is Junior Bush’s speech,
“Why don’t youse people like us?”
Is his feeble beseech.

Has he forgotten the evil
U.S. presidents have bestowed,
On Far and Middle Eastern lands
You reap what you shall sow.

From
nineteen forty-eight to now
America sowed only evil,
Playing Monopoly with real lands
Sanctifying devils.

Rightful leaders were kidnapped
And imprisoned for three decades,
Evil Shahs were put into power
To uphold
America’s oil enclave.

An evil empire arose
In
Arabia’s darkest hour,
Rightful leaders were killed off
Maniacs put into power.

Three million? Or three-hundred million
Arabs died along the way,
So, who can blame the Orient
For hating the
U.S.A.?

So
America’s need for oil
Could finally be sated,
The
U.S. lied and killed and cheated
And rightfully is hated.

So when Junior asks
“Why hate us? Hey we’re real nice!”
Don’t give in to his trick
Of convenient short-sight.

THE END
