Issue #1552      20 June 2012

Poem

Contradictions

Live atom bombs for peace
Plutonium is good for kids
Napalm is nourishing for your skin

Armageddon icebergs in my living room
War on terrorism is a global dose of methadone
World trade… world slave trade
World bank… World’s greediest bank
International monetary fund…
International mayhem fund…

Oil prices naturally go down, once upon a pipeline
Acid fiscal rain

Free trade will carry your children
Into sweat shop exploitation

Blood drenched Iraqis
Are collateral damage for democracy
Dead American soldiers are not to be filmed
For the six o’clock news, it’s unpatriotic

Land mines do not kill children…
If they don’t play with them…

Canvas hearted ceo of our oldest bank
Announces 3.3 billion dollar profit
1000 workers must be sacked for this poor result

All factories confiscated by loneliness
Unemployed Australian boat people

Heading for china…

Next article – Austerity, greed and the pain in Spain
