The White Man's Burden
"Take up the white man's burden...
Send forth the best ye breed...
Go bind yourselves to exile,
To serve your your captive's need,
To wait, in heavy harness,
On fluttered folk and wild...
Your new caught sullied peoples,
Half devil and half child,"
To The United States Army
"I have eaten your bread and salt,
I have drunk your water and wine,
The deaths ye died I watched beside,
And the lives ye led were mine."
If you can keep your head when all about you
are loosing theirs and blaming you;
If you can trust yourself when all men doubt you,
but make allowance for their doubting you:
If you can wait and not be tired by waiting.
Or, being lied about, don't deal in lies,
Or, being hated don't give way to hating,
And yet look too good, nor talk too wise...
The Man Who lived in a Tree
There was a man who decided to live in a tree,
because he just didn't want to see,
what was going on in the world today,
It was so terrible that he just couldn't see,
how the world had gotten so bad this way,
He remembered how it was before,
when the world used to be sane,
and now as he remembered it once again,
he decided that the world indeed,
had gone insane...
My country what is it today?
Is it the same, I say no way!
Have our men died in vain?
Or we still the same or we just insane?
The wars we fought to be free,
To save the land of our country of thee,
Or we are just too complacent and lost the key,
to save our land and our liberty!
TO LIE IS TO CHEAT, TO CHEAT IS TO DENY THE TRUTH, TO DENY THE TRUTH IS TO LIE.
The many contradictions in the New Testament did not stop the spread of Christianity in the world. The many lies and distortions of the truth did not stop the spread of Nazism in Germany. The many lies and distortions of the truth in Russia did not stop the spread of Communism in the world. The many lies and distortions of the truth did not stop the the spread of Obama-ism in the US either. What I want to know is what will?
