Dónde está Tierra Firme?


Jeremy Corbyn chases the Tories
The Dems chase Bernie Sanders
they need him
to keep the flock
close at hand

Bernie
who supports Israel
supports Syria attack
helps demonize Russia
helped fund the Iraq/Afghan
wars
supported Yugoslavia take down
and Libya
wants the boondoggle F-15
based in his state...

Sanders is good on
minimum wage
health care
environment
all good liberal
issues
used to shield Dems
from criticism
of their foreign policy...
the armpit of
corporate capital
American exceptionalism

Lately Bernie
made subtle
suggestion
'Me and Jeremy'
same-same....

Not quite.

Corbyn
an active peacenik
opposes Trident nuclear subs
during recent
London terror
attacks
in the middle
of the election
Corbyn dared ask
'What have our wars done
to further the cause
of 'terrorists'?

Blasphemy
in good old
US of A
Bernie avoids
taking
those leaps
into reality

Better to stay
on tierra firme
rocking the big boat
not welcome
in Washington

Bruce
