The USA has forfeited any claim it may have had on moral leadership as a result of its failure to respond in a timely and appropriate fashion to the Middle East crisis. It has also lost the initiative in all matters international. Other nations have been forced to respond to the crisis in the face of U.S. incompetence. The following poem is an expression of disgust at the cold-blooded callousness and disregard for human life openly displayed by the USA and Israel. It is dedicated to the U.S. Secretary of State, Condoleezza Rice.


WAR WHORE

to Condoleezza Rice

Your napalm hair
virus eyes
fall-out face
missile thighs
tombstone teeth
radium smile

who was it dared
to sire you?

mushroom breath
mutant gaze
armoured feet
genocide ways
poison breasts
burning womb

who is it can
RESIST you?

silo crotch
button clitoris
begging a touch.
