No More Beslans [Today's News Poem, March 29, 2010]

“Though the Moscow bombings appear related to the conflict in the North Caucasus and New York's greatest threat is seen as coming from al Qaeda, police enacted the same security detail that they roll out after any attack elsewhere in the world.”

Russia's being bombed once more,
So prepare yourselves for war.
Beslan lost its kids—beware:
Arm your children, if you care.
Creepy kids and towelheads
Train right now to shoot them dead.
Armories inside the schools
Make for better play than pools.
Buy that armored blouse and dress—
Proms without the bullet stress
Make for sweet eighteens... in fact
When the school's attacked, react
Forcefully to threat; unless
Bullies first incite the mess.
Then you just ignore their games—
Bullets always find their names.

This is incomplete. I didn't have enough time to include school shooters in detail in this. 20 minutes to make it right I guess.

Yes, a natural reaction. During the drive to work, I thought about Palin's call to arms & the brute ignorance of the Tea Party. Unfettered dedication to the denial of a basic necessity while others are willing to kill ... Kill you, themselves & ideals. Screw calling to arms. Are they willing to call to bombs; literally die for the movement? Meanwhile, the death toll grows. With extremists, there aren't death isn't sacred. It's a by-product of blind ignorance, to say the least.

Made it. Much better. Can actually leave it alone now. Was too crappy to allow earlier. This is better I think.

So I know I owe you all another news poem. I'll do it later. You know I'm good for it.
