U.S. Missile Madness Hypocrisy

Today the Pentagon
will test fire
a nuclear missile
from Vandenberg AFB
in California
into the Pacific
landing at their
often radiated target
Kwajalein Atoll

Just yesterday
the Pentagon
tried to sneak
the THAAD
‘missile defense’
system
in the dark
of night
into the new
base in Seongju,
South Korea
but protesters
were there
along with
a zillion police
pushing them back

Washington
is preparing
for war with
North Korea
because
they dare to test
missiles
and develop nukes

Testing missiles is
not illegal
under international law
the US
and its
double standard
nuclear allies
do it all the time
but North Korea
is not
in the club
thus they are
called rogue

Which nation
is the greater threat?
North Korea
with their pip-squeak
missile and nuclear
capability
or the mighty
USA?

The hypocrisy
is chilling
blinding
nerve wracking
heart stopping
infuriating

The ‘exceptional’
Pentagon
moves
the world
step-by-step
closer
to WW III

Today in Washington
Trump
meets with
all 100 US Senators
about Korea
likely
selling war
like he
wheels and deals
one of his
tall towers,
shrines to
arrogance and
madness

Let us hear
your squeaky
voice
now
while
we still
can utter
words
of protest
and
life giving

don’t wait
for the flash
and bang
and resulting
silence

    Thank you Bruce for putting into words all the fears I have for our children. The fact that most people here in the US are unaware of the hypocrisy and the dangers hidden in the lies and our profit-driven foreign policy, which is nothing new, scares me. Years ago a nice old lady called me to tell me about the dangerous gap between domestic and foreign policies. There is nothing positive about Trump, but maybe he will make the dangers more obvious. Lets hope so. Jane
