I see a red red sun

setting over the roofs here in this

shit little town

in shit Ohio

while the Taliban

are fighting

to liberate their country…

a red red sunset

like the ones Buddha

musta seen

thousands of times

while he sat under

the Bodhi Tree and came up

with his philosophy of


and yes, the idea is

truly beautiful

but America has shown people

over and over again

what it does

to non-violents…

I once saw a photo

of a white American soldier

with his legs blown off

and if some white guys

made money

by getting black men to kill

Asian men

over there

it sure as hell wasn’t this

white guy…

yeah, that little guy

with the funny little beard

really tore yr guts out,
