Global Situation 2008

          Global Situation

Afghanistan

And all around;

Mass fleeing,

Caused

By wars

Imposed

By us –

There has

To be a downfall,

Short-term windfalls

Notwithstanding.

Really,

How dare we

Indulge in self-deceit,

No self insight

And not expect

The stars to fall

On Alabama?
