Location: Brunswick, Maine, United States

I'll be taking an 'unpaid leave of absence' from my job at the Global Network from December 15-March 15, 2020 in order to help my friend Lisa Savage on her campaign for the US Senate in Maine. She's running as a Maine Green Independent Party member and needs to gather 2,000 petition signatures of registered Greens during that period. I'll be back to GN after March 15.

We Steal from Our Children's Future



After all
the lies
all the
false promises
the words
have little
meaning

New enemies
are created
to justify
the thievery
from
our children

We revel
in the
war stories
missile launches
bomb blasts
reenlistment bonuses
memorial parades
flag waving
pledge making

our hearts
have grown hard
and bitter
we are
emotional
zombies
walking dead(ly)

we
continue
to steal
from the
future
generations
with
or without
conscience
