It was Monday again
and prime time to scoff,
as the radio then
had to be turned OFF.
Rather than grieving or cussin’ or pissin’,
Davey decided he just wouldn’t listen.
Violence on the West Bank
with tribal tension to thank
and the US hoped-for hegemony
in Latin America,
more zealots setting off bombs in the Philippines
and workers without paychecks.

So prattle on, oh newscaster!
Your voice will be gone not quickly but faster!

Sun rises and sets each day
they place bets on an unfolding scene
for “our” fat war machine.
So what do We The People say?
