Americans

Americans

If war abroad is America’s only course of action
Then death can be its only prize

If Americans elect their leaders because they are entranced by their carefully scripted speeches
Then know that those words will echo your final eulogy

If Americans are not prepared to caste away their ignorance, pride and patriotism
Then all that will remain is the memory of empire

It is time for the soaring eagle to feed upon its politically malignant prey. Americans, your leaders are slowly encircling you with war, debt, unemployment, hunger, poverty and disease. Change is only possible when you raise your right arm and clench your fist - not in allegiance but rather revolution. When the might of 300,00,000 guns stand silent, the single bullet unfired will be for yourself.

Thank you,
Joseph Pede
