Dueling Banjos - an instrumental song made famous in the movie "Deliverance" (circa 1972), see Dueling Poetry - a free verse conversation between two or more poets; the extension of social and/or political thoughts or ideas; a collaborative, creative work between two or more poets….

As soon as you change-everything else does
The idea of democracy as rough as ostracon
Pentagon military values override civilian infrastructure budget
Where you put your energies is where you get results
Voting machines programmed result elections
Candidates who represent only their monied interests
Daddy President Paterfamilias of fractious families
Corporate Plunderers buying expensive lawyers
Economic playground riches only for the rich
Millionaires buy from billionaires
Invisible poor in privitized prisons
Embourgoisement executive highrise condominia
Military SUV truck Humvees mercenaries
25 million illegals voting via Western Union
Border Patrol bribed for cocaine gangs
Invasive strikes casualty listings
Role reversal Manifest Destiny Gunboat Diplomacy
Wars to endless Wars.Budget deficit
who speaks of the obvious?Withdraw now!
One World Government for Iraq,Palestine,Afghanistan
Puppets dance for dollars .Yen for yuan.Chinese water torture.
Tibet.Mongolia.Taiwan.Olympic Gamers
Tiemannen Celebrity Squares.Protesters freed
to change the dominant hegemony-first you have to....

We become the nightmare of
Eric Blair
We become death - "the shatterer of worlds"
We become the prophesy of J. Robert Oppenheimer and the Bhagavad-Gita
Our military, according to Harper's Magazine, a politicized mouthpiece
Of a predominant, militant party
Of born-again militarist
Who would crucify Christ afresh given the chance
For His stance against the first Caesarian Empire...

Nukes flown over our heads for three hours by B52 air transports -- for what...?
Don't worry; it's not to harm us -- then, who?

We've allowed a mafia family to subordinate the Constitution
The resolution - Impeachment, mentioned 6 times not pursued
The resolve of elected officials: don't screw up before retirement!
Conspiring for $130,000.00 guaranteed pensions
Even Lewis Craig can pursue.

When you allow a crime family into 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue
Strange days, myriad ways of wonder-working Sith Lord control
over every means of lazy information: corporate-controlled news
For Laissez-faire politicos and misinformation "Swift Boat" crews...

It's no wonder they wish to bar access to the Internet
Information is power: and we have it in our keyboards
But don't just sit on your political ASSets
Go to poetry venues,
Forward THIS
And DO (VOTE).
