He was made Dust bin Laden finally!
HP Poem #1338

These days it seems ... ?
weapons are ... seen ...
NOT JUST ... on screens ...
but now ... in streets ...
  
Murders Here ... !!!
Murders There ... !!!
  
These days it's ... CLEAR ...
They ... "FILL" ... Nightmares ... !!!!!
  
" Nightmarish " ... dreams ...
for those ... " Now Left " ...
with ... memories ...
of friends ... Now Dead ... !!!
  
or ... A Relative ...
for which ...  
There's ... NO FIX ...  
  
while the media sings ...
the ... " Same ol' thing " ...
  
"We need more police
with weaponry,
to stem the tide
of violent crime !"
  
while ...
  
Governments ... " Feed " ...
DIFFERENT ... stories ... !!!!!
  
"Violent crime is down,
across our towns !"
  
Maybe where they are !!?!!
  
with their .....  
" Six Car Garage "
and ... " Entourage " ...
of ... Security Guards ... !!!!!
  
No ...  
" Hoodies " ... round them ...
or .... " Terrorist Threats " ....
  
Yet our youth are ... " Investing " ...
in ... " Possessing " ... more weapons ... !?!
  
A ... " New Age Trend " ...
that ... NEEDS TO ... " Lessen " ... !!!!!
  
as time ..... transcends ..........
there are many who ... " Threaten " ... !!!!!!
to .... Use A Weapon ....
  
from ... Violent Youth ...
to these ... Terrorist Crews ...
  
but ......  
Is that true ... !?!
Who's Foolin' ... Who ... ???
  
The U.S's ... " New Weapon " ...
ISN'T .... seen as a threat .... ???
  
Well ...  
Not just ... " Yet " ...............................
  
Could it be that ... Obama ... ???
is worse than ... " Osama " ... ?!?
  
Questions like ... THAT ...
may get me ... attacked ...
  
By BOTH .... white and black ...
but ... THINK ... before you ... FIRE ... !!!
  
A president is ... " Hired " ...
and RARELY ... ever ... " Fired " ...  
and .... most of them ....
are just ... " Figureheads " ...
who tend to be ... " BIG LIARS " ... !!!
  
"But Barack's Black !"
  
is what's being ... said ...
by his ... " Supporters " ... YES ... !!!
  
BOTH ... White and Black ...
  
But .....
Which way will they sway ... ?
if things ... Don't Change ... ?
  
I bet blacks starts saying ...
  
"Well he is mixed race..."
  
while the ... " Liberal Whites " ...
will probably be playing ...
the ... CLASSIC ... old lines ...
  
"He's messed things up !
He ain't one of us !"
  
Of course ...  
Blacks will cuss ... !!!
and ... " Run Their Gums " ... !!!!!
  
"Why you saying this stuff ?!?"
  
because ....
In .... " My View " .... !!!
it's the ... ******* Truth ... !!!!
  
because .....
this brother's got colour ....
that makes him ... " Cool " ... ?!?
  
That's a weapon they've ... " Used " ...
to keep you ... FOOLED ... !!! ...
  
So Don't ... get it confused ... !!!
  
Don't it seem a bit strange ... ?
that after .... " Uncle George " ....
Who ... CLEARLY ...  Waged War ...
on ... " immigrant Hoards " ...
  
that a man called ... " Osama " ... !!!!!!
  
"Excuse me .... OBAMA's .... !!!"
  
Gonna .... " SAVE THE DAY !!! "  
  
Clearly NOT ... !!!
  
for the folks down with ........ B.O. ........... !?!?!
  
Wait a minute man ... Whoaaaaaaa ... !!!!!!!!
  
I can smell something ... " Funny " ...
and I know it ain't me ....... !!!!!!! .......
  
  
B.O. .... SHOULDN'T BE ....
in the ... " White House Seat " ... !!!!!
  
but I guess that was left ...
by good ol' ... Georgie B' ... !!!!!
who's been in the news ...
for avoiding ... " SHOES " ... ?!?
  
Now .....
What kind of ... " Weapon " ...  
are they to ... " use " ... ?!?!?
  
I know ... Iraqi Dudes ...
gotta have ... More Venom ... !!!
  
It's ... Always the way ...
  
How you bringing a knife ... ?
to a F'ing ... " GUNFIGHT " ... !?!
  
"Son, you shouldn't play games
when it comes to your life !"
  
That's why ... " My Weapon " ...
is used to ... " STRENGTHEN " ...
  
NOT ...  
Leave me ... "weak" ... !!!
like those who ... " Bleed " ...  
  
My Weapon's ... MY MIND ... !!!
and ... well though out rhymes ...
that require ... NO SWORDS ...
or .... " Physical Wars " .... !!!!!!!!!
  
Of course I recognise ....
that words .... Can''t Stop ....
Weaponry that's ... STRONG ... !!!!!
  
But i'd rather die .... !!!
than start ... taking lives ...
because I ... " Couldn't 'Find " ...
A ... " Better Way " ... to end ...
..... Petty ..... arguments .....
than ... using a weapon ...
to prove ... my strength ...
  
when ... all it's gonna do ...
is lead to .... " Death " ....  
  
So .....
Do the government lie ... ???
about ... Gun and Knife crime ... ???
  
I'll let you ... decide ...
but remember ... These Lines ... !!!
  
Things on ... " Prime Time " ...
are what .... " THEY CHOOSE " ....
  
and Aren't ... always true ... !!!!!
  
Think about your life ...
and where you reside ...
  
Does your neighbourhood ... ?
get the coverage it should ... ?
  
Does the news ... " Neglect " ... ?  
the things you wanna see ...
on .................Your T.V. ....... ???
  
You see .....
  
My Weapons are ... WORDS ... !!!
and .... poetic verse ....
  
Now I ... RARELY Curse ... !!!
but agree with ... Em' ....
  
When you face problems ...
Sometimes ... You ... NEED TO ... !!!!!
  
I'd prefer that move ...
than a move to ... " SHOOT " ... !!!!!!
  
I can't end this piece ...
without ... One More Theme ...  
  
The biggest weapon in use ...
is ... CLEARLY ... " YOU " ... !!!!!
  
The things ... " You Choose " ...
and things .... " You Do " ....
and things you ... FEAR ...
  
This move is ... CLEAR ... !!!
  
The media ... FUELS ...
A ... "Limited View" ...
  
OPEN ... Your Mind ... !!!
and .... RECOGNISE ....  
that what you're fed ....
is .... " Agenda " .... led ....
  
You really can't believe ....
everything that you read
or the things that you see
on your ... TV Screens ... !!!!!
  
There are ... Many Fallacies ...
and .... False Prophecies ....
  
aimed towards ... " Your Ears " ...
to ... " Fuel Your Fears " ... !!!!! ...
  
My Weapon ... Fa' Sure ...
" Supports " ... This Cause ...
  
Conscious Thoughts ... !!!
before acts of war ...
  
That Make ... Blood Pour ... !!!
  
So ...
My question for you all .....
  
............ is ...........
  
" What Is Yours ? "
Irate Watcher Aug 2014
1991

I realized
We were both born
in rotting soil,
plastic toys fed
by Arabia's oil.
Eyes closed,
ears behest
to broadcasts, we,
could NOT protest.

That was the beginning
of our mass destruction,
but cribs offsides,
we slept soundly,
thanking our stars,
proud to be Americans.

10 years dormant,
the lyrics laid,
enough to stick,
but their irony to fade.
Until grade school,
recess goaded,
as burning buildings
on our side exploded.
The imminent threat preloaded,
in airports we shed shoes,
forever coded.

The broadcast — our center
was the theorem
that planes, oil, and Arabs
risked everyone's freedom.
But when we raised hands,
to ask why, teachers said
hail red, blue,
and especially white.
We forgot our roots,
because the Ellis Island trip
was obviously cancelled.

So we read headlines,
instead of Orwell,
the day 911
called for a police state.
Trusted the government
and ****** Muslims,
the day turbans
meant hijacking planes.
Pledged allegiance
disguised as freedom,
the day war
was declared
on Saddam Insane.

Our flag revealed
a sham feeding flames,
angst-ridden
teenagers
we became.
With raised middle fingers,
instead of hands,
to Green Day lyrics,
**** Amuricans.

Because only idiots
press a red button twice,
when mass destruction is the price.
And only villains
make children orphans,
while victims drown
in New Orleans.
And only gluttons
eat caviar with silver spoons,
tainting forever
a nation's youth.

Entrenched in dunes,
we boarded blind,
to debt,
death, and
jaded minds.
Blamed by perpetrators
in dollars and change,
for a guerrilla war
fought in vain!
Voted Obama,
with Osama slain,
and soldiers withdrawn,
we hoped for change.
PLEASE, we cried,
JUST STOP!
We are CHAINED —
to a bulldozer
that has NO BRAKES!



So the broadcast said recently:
We are losing control
of the Middle East. And
Al-Qaeda is far from weak —
ISIS: THE PHOENIX OF HUMAN GREED,
We just turned off our TV's
and looked up,
the kids who gave up,
thanked Musk — our atlas,
not yet shrugged,
whose vessels of stars
will rocket toward Mars,
from this godforsaken
civilization
built on hate.

And when you tell me, ***,
"We were both born in 1991,"
I can only sigh,
and breath sympathy,
for our dark history.
Thank you Justin for inspiring this poem. I am performing it next Tuesday at Da Poetry Lounge in LA so any feedback is appreciated :)
