the great american witch hunt
since may 2010,
before any kind of trial at all has taken place,
bradley manning rots in solitary
“being denied exercise, any kind of social
interaction & sunlight” as well as often
“being kept completely naked”
clearly undergoing what some have rightly called
julian assange’s life is threatened on a
& if no one kills him before he is imprisoned for life
great american witch hunt
you can bet your bottom dollar that
the EMPIRE will do everything that they can to
silence him &
shut down wikileaks
screaming & thrashing
having its little temper tantrum
because some of its
have had a bright light shined on them.
you & i can either climb to the highest
mountain that we can find in these here
stand on the edge of a cliff
we can raise our hands & wave goodbye to
first amendment as mr. obama & co.
“pursue the prosecution of more whistleblowers
than any other administration in US history”
jump off into the quiet &
complete annihilation of our freedom of speech---
because manning, assange &
so many anonymous others
are simply individuals
we can join them!
we can stand beside them & support them
in any way possible!
at the very least we can understand that they are
heroes that should be honored as being
promoters of a better humanity---
that WILL NOT
undermined by the overwhelmingly oppressive
that still thrive amongst us.
