Working Joe Tension


Unlike the war in Iraq


An Anecdote


Swooning over the Savannah

Camelias blossom

Hope is as bright

as the sun

shining down

On the Savannah River.

Motionless Movement

The water stirs

The war is over.



The Story

The War has just begun

so says Rush Radio) 1)

It’s been tug, tug, tugging along

It seems … forever.


Working Joe singing

Let the ideologues

Of this concocted war

Allow bushie, chainy, rumsy, and wolfy

To understand their failure.



Let gingry, Gingrich, Neocon
Stand and be true to his word
Stand in front of
Sunni + Shia + Kurd viewpoints


A new Millennium
Just like the old one – The Crusades (2) _
Two hundred years,
The nightmare, all over again.


Push IRAQ,
Push bushie, chainy, rumsy,
And now condie,

Push US money,
Moving into the trillions
US economy
left behind

Good-bye
To the Working Joe.


Unlike the war in Iraq

The Georgia Mockingbird

Surveys his Savannah domain

And cries tooah, tooah :

Sorry Working Joe

This war’s a lie.

Matilda told such Dreadful Lies,
It made one Gasp and Stretch one's Eyes;
Her Aunt, who, from her Earliest Youth,
Had kept a Strict Regard for Truth,
Attempted to Believe Matilda:
