Should I be one to cast aspersions-
Imagining a hangman’s noose
For Bush and Cheney’s mass perversions
Before their terms end? What’s the use?
The System’s always mass producing
The politicians whose unloosing
Make promises of great beyonds,
As if by waving magic wands.
But if I don’t keep criticizing,
Whether in prose or doggerel verse,
Won’t I have helped them make it worse?
Elections are the legalizing
Of facts that show it’s hit and run
But too late to call 911.
