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.

Fingers on the Trigger


I've tried
to figure out
what makes
these cats
in the Pentagon
the CIA
Lock-Mart
Ray-thee-gun
and Boering
really tick....

The folks
back home
are confused
despairing
depressed
many flat out
given up
ready to climb
into a hole
and pull the dirt
in on top
of themselves

Do the war boys
really want to
end it all?
Are they that crazy?
What about their
own kids?

It's hard
to keep pushin
the rock
but the
alternative
is not so
appealing

The dream
the house
upon the hill
seems not so
important
when
the crazy cats
got their
fingers
on the
triggers
