On Drones and Targeted Killing

       Christmas Day, 2011

by David Harris

 The Justice Department and the CIA

Have discovered a most unusual way

            of making decisions.

Ignoring the law and the Constitution, they

Write their own rules while the lobbyists pay

            off the politicians.

The city police from New York to L.A.,

No longer civilians, are learning to play

            in new missions,

With Christmas toys like tanks and lasers and drones.

And snooping on internet, records and phones.

            The conditions

Red and Orange Alert by Homeland Security,

Promote among people fear and immaturity,

            and immobilizing divisions.

But more and more people are saying today

It’s a lie and a game they no longer will play.

            Occupy Wall Street!
