OIL, WATER, DIAMONDS, GOLD....
Let's see...
Oil, water, diamonds, gold...
What else can we privatize, globalize
& steal?
a bird thought
i was a singing bird
& fell in love with me
i thought i was a dolphin
I went on out to Sea
In search of Rachel Corrie

No one should sacrifice their bodies, their souls
for their country cuz now we're One.
Big little planet with no walls
no separations
We're all One
Your wound is my wound
& we don't want wounds
or violence.

TILL THE CONQUERORS DRINK THEIR FILL
How many fathers?
Old man who are you?
How many sons?
How many mothers will cry?
& lose their lives
to the pointless bombs,
the Brutal lies?
Invasion such a soul-less task
waged by soldiers, trained to kill
How much BLOOD will have to spill
till the conquerors drink their fill?

WARMONGERUS-ERECTUS
have you seen the warmongerus-erectus?
they have no lips so lies slip thru
they cannot kiss
so they imagine "arms" as weapons
They do not dream but have fantasies
of destroying children, musuems, Ancient things & civilizations.
The sight of Blood excites them.
They are mis-shapen
They have no children of their own.
They need walls; separations; barriers.
They have Never Known Love or Gentleness.
Hate makes them feel Secure.

IN SILENCE AND PAIN
Tears fall from my eyes like Blood
souls of the dead rise
in silence & pain
The agony of the family
the skinless man
the handless child
In a Heartless world
A soul-less time
Its the monsters vs. the humans.
There are those of us who weep
& mourn humanity
on this darkest edge
The Killing of Peace
the silencing of dissent
the vicious assault on Sanity
& we weep ceaseless endless tears
& drink our beers to drown our fears
as the black curtain closes in
This Tragic Sin of Lies

LIKE ROME BEFORE THE FALL

WE'RE A BABY NATION
Too big for our britches
Like Rome before the Fall
Gonna burn all our bridges.

This endless war
How long has it been?
Indeterminable
I can't look anymore
Pain. can't take it.
As you cry i do too.
Seems like all this horror has been going on forever.
Images of iraq. images of indians. of racist america.
We have always been a nation of oppression, fear, hatred, violence.
Our "land of the free" is the land of pain.
It hurts too much.

They call weapons "arms" how loving...

How kind of the murderers to give the child new skin.
Skin stolen from the part of his body not burned.
Not destroyed by the destroyers of skin.
They have been so careful with their delicate gentle bombs.
Tell that to the skinless.
The charred horse.
Tell that to the Children of Palestine
Tell that to the olive trees
Trees must be destroyed
Tell that to the musuem;
The seeds of civilization stolen.
Tell that to all the other children
Whose skin is torn or gone
There is not enough skin
To cover all the wounds
There's not enough water only chaos
Anger & skinlessness.

SEPARATIONS
separations...
the barriers of our thin skin;
one layer of colourless flesh
we are travelers of the world now;
our history destroyed.
the bombs have eradicated all divisions.
but there is no way
to bomb a soul...
souls cannot be destroyed
our souls like ghosts
slide thru bombs & burning hell
we'll get thru...
to all the fathers, mothers, babies.
we suffer as you.
pain of death
will strengthen our souls
to fight the monsters.
its the angry violent fools vs.
the world consciousness souls.
it matters not if they have the money
cuz money matters not.
it matters not if they have the weapons
cuz you can't kill a soul.

ALL THIS MADNESS & KILLING
I am overcome by grief.
All this madness & killing.
what will become
of our Mother earth?
with all the Blood of tragedy
the cries of anguish
What will become of the future?
Tainted with sadness
& growing fear.
What will become of the children?
once so innocent & dear?
Suspected communist executed by US-backed South Korean government, 1950.

ONE BY ONE
they died; one by one.
my dad, phillip berigan, kurt cobain.
they all left the planet
cuz all too suddenly
the planet became very strange
& dangerous.
they plan to murder you,
my dear mother earth.
the plot becomes more nefarious
as the vampires steal your oceans,
your animals, your human beings.
they'll put killer lazers
among your Beauty Full stars,
my mother earth.
i bid you farewell
as your children
are systematically targeted
& slaughtered in Iraq,
Palestine,
Mexico
& all over.

SHOW YOUR FACE
Drink yer tea & show yer face
destroyers of this Human Race
my Brown skin/yer thin skin
Why does colour affect you so?
Dig deeper into yer strange Soul
it Betrays the People So
the planet cannot hold yer hate
unless we fall to yer sad fate
violence & fear the creed
as you laugh/the people Bleed
our cries of Love won't go untouched
as we caress the Broken limbs
of those who fall to yer twisted sins.

HOW DARE THEY
how dare they
break your body in two?
Little girl from washington
so brave
they couldn't break your spirit.
your soul is big
now your soul spreads
across the universe
in Peace.
You gave your spirit
to tell them
How dare they bulldoze houses
with every excuse
to kill & murder children
women, boys, men
all innocent.
killing civilians is a war crime.
you are committing crimes
against humanity.
you have no soul.
hurting another
is not possible
if you have a soul.
so soul-less, god-less freaks
don't you understand what you're doing!

IN THESE DYING TIMES
One woman one man one child
in Palestine
in Iraq
in America
As long as man's
Inhumanity to man
Man's brutality
Man's indifference
As long as we ignore
the suffering
As long as we allow
murder
weapons
destruction
we're all goin' down
the same road
Total anniliation of our planet.
As long as our tears
our blood flows
we all die
together
cuz we can't live
In these Dying times...
03/13/2003
WHAT'S IN THOSE SHOTS?
whats in those shots they give our soldiers?
poisons meant to turn humans into monsters;
obediant slaves; murderous traitors...
they want to make you
a human sacrifice
they want you to die die die
for somebodys peace of mind
they tell you its just a little sacrifice
they want you to die die die
oh, wouldn't that be nice?
They want you to get Blown to bits in Palestine
maybe you could lose your sight
for the cause
They send you to die die die
as they fill you full of holes
& they fill you full of lies
such a bloody way to go
such a small sacrifice

RAINING IN L.A.
it's raining in l.a.
The sky cries
it weeps & moans
The heavens have opened up & tears pour out relentlessly
The sky cries cuz the universe wants peace.
The universe is tired & weary

from anger of Earths people.
The universe doesn't want anger or pain to rule this sad tiny planet.
The heavens say look to me & my infinite Beauty; my wisdom.
I give you light, clouds, trees, oceans & Love. Now Love People -
as my sky weeps all over you.

THE MEMORIES
"the memories still run in my blood"
He still bears the scars.
screaming screaming smoke & fire
"things that cannot be told"
Her Grief is so Deep, it made her ill
She wept again, again, again
02/18/2003
HOW DARE YOU
How dare you
say my skin is Black or White
Brown cuz' skin is skin
flesh is flesh
It comes & goes Like the Wind
cuz' Life is so fragile You never
know when ya go
Like the New York
Streets it burns your Soul till ya get
cold with Grief as your Soul
flies up to the Heavens & scatters
Love & Beauty to the Universe
so how dare you
think we're separated by thin skin
wall when we're tearin down your
Flesh Wall to Kiss your Heart
& Love you back to Life

(as if its a dinner engagement...)

Tears

Tears
sometimes when I'm lonely
I talk to Birds & they answer
so many times I talk to Birds
then I cry.
I cry for the Blood
of Palestine & Israel
I cry for their children
& the children of America
who will cry for war.
we all cry for war
no more.

Why Can't I Say Goodbye?

We try to understand his Life.
we reach our hands around his soul
trying to hold
We try to caress & revive the memory
of such a man
so some can see
what they never could see
such a love of life
Holding on
so not to die
a life that was
but never was known
by many
but a few knew
& will always remember
Always
the soul
so old
that had to go.

Don't You Care?

Afghanistan. Angola. Don't you care?
You fat cats in your television glare
Drive your cars, count your stars
While the children starve.

A Cry for Humanity

I cry for humanity
I weep & shriek & mourn for humanity
For where has the Heart Gone?
when society ignores peace makers
& reveres war mongers?
power vs. humility?
where peace lovers are imprisoned
while war mongers "elected" & obeyed
as false idols? the gods of money
of frashy, 99 cent store bought items,
collected on pedestals to attempt
to fill their devoid inner selves;
where the soul should be
The hollow holes, previously sold,
to heal the horror of their inner depravity.

Fish and Birds

Fish & birds
Dead.
the sticky goo
oozes ashore
the Lethal Boat
Destroyed.
The Black Gold. The Gold of War.
Gold Death. What a heavenly
way to go. Golden Black
Death War. (the war of whores)
A culture of Hell worship
Imported to Kill
Animals...Humans...We don't care
our new weapons will prove
our power to anniliate
The Planet...so the few
remaining millionaires will find
their faces lacking just some features...
tufts of hair...an eye remains...
trade for Birds & Fish & Black Gold...
what the whores won't do
for that luscious stuff!
