To Any President

I try to get inside your head and snoop
around a bit. I see common folk around,
most are decent, alone or in a group.
Most can look you in the eye and not bound
to stare you down or contest a bit of ground
unless their child or life be threatened. They go
to work, do their jobs, pay their bills and sound
no alarms unless they are really merited. And so
I'm curious as to what makes you tick.
At what point in your life were you capable
of sending innocents to their death. What trick
did you pick up that makes you so able
to ignore the casualties. How do you sleep?
Do you hear the screams? Do you ever weep?

    awesome poem and some pertinent questions, and the answer to the last three questions is sumed up by the word psychopath and its glorious definition, which just happens to be the natural requirement along with a nak for acting. :) viva the peaceful non-cooperation revolution p.s. another question i would ask him before any of the others is: are you speaking on behalf of the fiction legal title of President (corporation) or the hu-man Barak Obama? could make for an interesting conversation.
