We say this is the start of 2013 here in Philadelphia.
Folks costumed as Indians paraded in the street followed by
the Pope, flanked by nuns and Italian flags.
World Wars never ended.
Armistice just meant we stopped the American military assault on Europe.
Rome still cradles the Vatican, London still validates Germanic dominance,
righteous Indigenous cultures still hunger for the majestic growth of common good.
Judges and lawyers continue to profit from the illusion of justice.
Wanna be warriors continue to hunt for enemies to destroy
perfectly advancing the evil world that they despise
hiding their regret with lies and drugs.
The destruction of the New World was first monetized with animal pelts and woodcrafts.
Then monetized by Spanish bullion.
Then standardized by British sterling.
Then corrupted by Nazi thefts and Swiss secrets.
Then obliterated by G.H.W. Bush and his families' cartel.
Now perpetuated by our hunger for harnessed electricity.
