the american mediafest

the american media ****fest

“tensions are mounting in the
Middle East,”
like they haven’t since 48’,
like they hadn’t been before then
when one people decided that
because their big imaginary friend in
the sky
said to them in bewildered delusion
that this land,
this little
****ing sliver of land,
was to be theirs,
as it was
promised &
for every 
one Israeli soldier,
trained to kill,
trained to kill
TRAINED TO KILL
LIKE GOOD LIL’
HIRED KILLERS,
20 Palestinian civilians
get erased from the planet,
as a people getting pushed right off into the
ocean,
as a people getting spread all over the world
so far away from the land that hadn’t been stolen
in any of the prior
rapes,
so that one day the whole little piece of 
ground, that in any rational person’s eyes,
is chosen by NO ONE
for NO ONE,
leaving the bare facts that there were people there &
then another people decided to take it---
but that’s alright cause’ the american media
has them in their sights---
with each rocket the size of a goddamned firecracker
flying into the militarized state of Israel,
a legion of ground troops & air support,
armed with every ****ing new little toy that 
BIG BROTHER AMERICA
wants to experiment with in the
region,
has allowed its little bro to have fun with,
KILLING PALESTINIAN CIVILIANS
KILLING PALESTINIAN CIVILIANS
KILLING PALESTINIAN CIVILIANS,
until
every last one is 
gone,
until every last supportive eye in the rest of the 
world watching,
sees this for what it really is & not what the
american media ****fest wants us to---
GENOCIDE
GENOCIDE
GENOCIDE---
this is not a skirmish,
this is not a police action,
this is not a war between “faiths,”
this is not the path to some ****ing
“biblical armageddon,”
this is not apartheid,
this is ****ing
GENOCIDE,
pure & simple,
and our tax dollars are paying for it
america,
yours & my tax dollars are putting Israeli 
planes made by america in the air
& putting bullets & bombs in the hands of the
ground troops,
so that 20 Palestinian civilians
can be killed for every one
homeless or unemployed person here at
home,
that could have been helped with that 
mother****ing
money.
