text Protest Poetry penn, Sunday, Jul 23 2006, 6:13am
The USA has forfeited any claim it may have had on moral leadership as a result of its failure to respond in a timely and appropriate fashion to the Middle East crisis. It has also lost the initiative in all matters international. Other nations have been forced to respond to the crisis in the face of U.S. incompetence. The following poem is an expression of disgust at the cold-blooded callousness and disregard for human life openly displayed by the USA and Israel. It is dedicated to the U.S. Secretary of State, Condoleezza Rice. (story and 1 comment)

text Schoolyard Allegory cleaves, Sunday, Jan 16 2005, 5:16am
Somewhere in an elementary school a schoolyard bully and his cowardly lackeys confronted an eleven-year-old boy and demanded money. The eleven-year-old had precious little money; he could not and would not accede to the demand. The bully decided to make a show of his displeasure and strength by belting the boy in the face. This event attracted the attention of all the other boys in the schoolyard (who had also been bullied.) A large crowd formed around the confrontation. The teachers in authority, for reasons known only to them, ignored the situation
