newspoem 8 december 1995

let's invade our own country

to put an end to the genocide

and suffering. let american soldiers

hand out care packages from

their mothers' front lawns

in their home towns.

let the local papers

write it up.

let's hand out stacks

of uniforms to the cold

and rations to the hungry.

let's impose peace in

Los Angeles New York

Chicago too.

we stay in peace

and need not

defend ourselves.
