How Would Jesus Look in that Bomber Jacket?



Many people want
to impeach Trump
for similar war crimes
committed by Obama,
Bush II, Clinton,
Bush I, etc....

Then we'd get
Pence
the bible thumper
the true believer

Katie
bar the door

But Pence is
presidential
he looks good
in the bomber jacket
harsh
and tight-assed
just the way
they like them
inside the
Deep State
in the land
of the free....

Washington
has a tough sell
as the empire
implodes
under its own
contradictions

They are now
asking themselves:
Do we just bluster
and boast
our way through
the collapse
or
do we keep
bombing
the hell out of anyone
as an example
to others
who stand
in our way?

The Deep State
wants to
make them
shake and shudder
down along the East River
at the U.N.

Many Christians
declare
that the bombs
will help
bring on
the end times
They love us so much
they are ready
to kill us all

Not the kind
of love
I'm looking for....

Can't help
but ask
How would
Jesus look
in that
bomber jacket?

Wonderful reflections Bruce.

'Imploding under its own contradictions' reminds me of an essay by some prominent thinker. Was it Chomsky or Immanuel Wallerstein or another?

The Deep State creates the fear which allows the introduction of Homeland Security tightening of surveillance and social control.

And in this state of fear people vote for people with unhinged personalities who like to dress up in bomber jackets etc. We, society, created these distorted political leaders.
