A Slice Of An Agonized Day In Iraq

12 P.M. Sadr City on purple heart boulevard
where Abrams Bradleys Hummers patrol
assignment looking for insurgents on the prowl
hoping to find Alcaeda fighters
planting an improvised roadside bomb

Suddenly from two roof tops 13 insurgents pop-up
gun shots ring out bullets clank and ping
off Hummer's reinforced armor plates

Antiwar Poem One

Belligerent Chauvin brethren
old Judeo younger Christian
together neo-colonial conquerors
over their youngest brother Islam

What bloody harsh subjugations
Palestine Afghanistan Iraq
stay the course next dot
connected to the thin red line Iran...
