All the rednecks in
America, could not stop,
Justice happening!

Indians want free speech too!
Nothing to lament.

Freedom of speech is needed!
But not Al Sharpton!

Gross restrictions
On speech. Fifth Amendment gone:
America today!

Support democracy,
Unlike Republicans.

Just in case they cause trouble!
We don’t need no proof!

How could anyone think
Of voting Republican,
After the Bush daze!

At this the festive season;
And no more spite, please!

At this the festive season;
And no more hate, please!

Reigning over the people;
Grown fat off our taxes.

DICTATORS GOVERN
Dictators govern
Reigning over the people;
Grown fat off taxes.

ELECTION 2008 U.S.A. (24/10/2008)
Vote Barrack or John
In the end who really cares?
Just let it finish!

Let the election pass
So we can all stop writing,
Of Obama & McCain.

ENDLESS DAZE (24/10/08)
We’re endlessly dazed
As the election hoo-ha,
Goes on in the States.

FEAR THIS MAN!
Sadam Hussein? Or
Sado-Insane? Fear this man;
For he is a monster!

A FESTIVE TIME? (II) (29/12/2008)
At a time of peace
Why is there so much hatred,
Polluting the Earth?

FLESH IN THE FURNACE (II)
Flesh in the furnace:
People cooked like animals;
Germany insane.

FREE SPEECH
Fighting oppression
I always speak the truth;
No matter who it hurts!

THE HOLOCAUST
Remembrances of
Death camps, of people burning;
Of the holocaust.

IRAQI NIHILISM
Sado-Insane, both
By name and by actions:
Iraqi nihilism.

THE LORD’S BIRTHDAY (I)(29/12/2008)
Christ was born this time
Two thousand years passed. But his
word of ‘love’ is lost.

THE LORD’S BIRTHDAY (II)(29/12/2008)

Two thousand years passed.
His word of ‘love’ seems lost.

Redneck rebels want
The war against sanity,
To last forever!

REPUBLICANS LIKE THE NAZIS (08/11/2008)
Like Republicans
Nazis couldn’t take criticism;
No matter how fair!

A SELF-MADE MONSTER!
Frankenstein’s monster
Raged like Hussein; but
Hussein was self-made.

Mengele performed
Surgery of terror,
On unwilling patients.

WHEN THE OIL RUNS OUT (11/12/2008)
When the oil runs out
Will America stop,
Invading Arab lands?
