He
MelissaK

He is an evil man,
 1
His quest is to rule the world.
 2
He rose from nowhere,
 3
And tampered with votes
 4
To get into office.
 5
He had his friends destroy the twin towers.
 6
Then he took away citizen rights,
 7
Claiming for our safety.
 8
He invaded another country,
 9
To get our people killed.
 10
He tampered with votes again
 11
To stay in office.
 12
He has more to do
 13
More freedom to take away.
 14
He has a world to destroy,
 15
And that is part of his
 16
No child left behind act.

How would dropping nuclear weapons on a nuclear free Iran be anything less than the worst war crime ever?  Deliberately manufacturing enemies brings out reactionary thinking and is a long term strategy of the advantaged controlling elite.
Is there really enough democaracy or clarity to stop and escalation that threatens not just one marginalised group, but life on this planet. You put you finger right on it, here.  This makes me think of Bukowkis poem:

Always

the important
thing
is
the obvious
thing
that
nobody
is
saying.

There is a long political tradition in poetry, (right back to the oral tradition... and how is curtailing freedom of speecj not also political?

Awww, look.  Somebody doesn't want to have to think.  Poor you, burdened as you are with all this social and political commentary.  Someone write the sad sucker some verse on trains or something.

As to the poem, I would have liked to have seen more (poetically, that is) but the content is important and it's a good start.  Who would have guessed that GW was the antichrist.

hey poems are what ever the hell you make then to be for you!! We all write mostly of love but the topic for poetry is whats in your heart, don't question someones poetry. Although I don't know if all she said is true I respect it. HE is what he wants to be let someone else judge not you or me.

It perhaps states things a little too overtly and is a bit prosaic - but I'm with you on the sentiment.

it sound like the president

but it really good
good job to you

Really well written, as in the flow, not so much the punctuation but that doesn't bother me. Good solid ending with a build up from ine 13. Like the connotations of putting He with a capital letter, although I guess this was done because the poem was formatted this way.
