Poor's Bloodprints

Long ago we saw

a mangy dog.. so skeletal

that when she walked

she left bloody pawprints

and now

The pretender prince

has war blueprints

which have become

the poor's bloodprints

Author's Notes/Comments: 

When enough stand up
to say 'not in my name'
.. when enough refuse
to buy the products
or invest in the stock
of General Dynamics
Lockheed Martin
AOL Time Warner NEwsCorp
Fox Boeing McDonald's

and other war profiteers..
when enough people
confront the mongers
of this war..
it will cease.. the
children of the poor
will come home..
and their unwanted bases
in other lands will shut
