Scoop Poem: Global Spinning on Looms of Mortality

Global Spinning on Looms of Mortality


By Genevieve Cora Fraser

Spun out of control
Out of life
Into death
Spin doctors
Doctor up reasons
To occupy
Massacre and suppress
For security
For religion
For the god almighty
Dollar, shekel
Euro and yen
Reasons spew
Forth deceptions
Sever truth
From facts
Cut arteries of life
As blood spilt attests
To the tortured
Deception
Sparking
Reprisals
Denials
Cover for criminal
Aggression and acts
Spin doctors
Spin
Pretexts
Whack the Axis
Of Evil intentions
Into gear
Obstruct
Reasoned debate
Mendacity’s held dear
Spun
Faster and faster
As Death rates accelerate
With mind numbing
Speed
Like volcanic eruptions
Spewing forth
Hate, ethnic cleansing
Corruption and greed
A child clings to mother
As father sprawls dead
At their feet
Blasts
Manufactured
In America
Stills the cherished
Heart beat
Breeds retaliation
Dread
Occupation’s
Well-heeled boot
On the march
While tax and spend
War mongers
Sequester Truth in the dark
The horror of oppression
Spins
Victims into Terrorists
Starvation stark suffering
Hidden
Re-dressed
Diatribes
Fabricated in layers of lies
Cloaked
In a broad brush message
God is on Our Side
Yes, Freedom and Democracy
Is on the March
It would seem
Quick
Break to a commercial
Cut the cries and screams
Put out the Do Not Disturb sign
Quiet please
America Dreams


ENDS
