Mark on Air America: Whose Suffering Moves you Most?

October 29, 2009

Whose suffering moves you most?
Animals? (Are you a vegetarian?)
Your family’s?
People in your neighborhood, city, or nation?
People with inadequate health care?
People suffering genocide?
People who don’t deserve suffering?
The homeless?
People of your race, religion, or ethnicity?

    In my last year in the army–I was stationed at Ft. Hood, TX
    Cultural Slaughter
    Culture of war,
    do you dare keep score of the horror
    as friendly fire ups the tally
    of senseless misery,
    bloody slaughter
    is all the rage
    for numb minds conditioned to kill
    an enemy that is all humanity,
    as anyone with a heartbeat
    becomes a target of opportunity,
    is there no boundary
    to the violent insanity
    directed against itself,
    that creates a monster
    roaming rogue with the blind anger
    of an overstressed soldier,
    committed to ill-conceived duty
    in the theater of dishonor
    showing the vain act of the play
    that is now just a sad recurring cliché,
    time to bury more bodies,
    bugle taps
    and fire weapons to the sky,
    as cruel demeaning meaning fades away
    from the corpses in the caskets,
    under flags draped and on display.

    You left out those heart tugging SPCA advertisements. And the touching music while you look into those sad puppies eyes.
    and do not forget those Wall Street guysthat have people questioning their bonus and wages after bailed out?
