“If a man has an apartment stacked to the ceiling with newspapers we call him crazy. If a woman has a trailer house full of cats we call her nuts. But when people pathologically hoard so much cash that they impoverish the entire nation, we put them on the cover of Fortune magazine and pretend that they are role models.”

 Stories/Poems: Mars, oh Mars

Art
Mars, oh Mars

by Gary Lindorff

Mars, oh Mars
how pink you are!
You hang in the east –
a blushing star,

Above
the abandoned quarry,
where I have come
to say, I’m sorry

For confusing you
with the god of war
when Earth
has always been his whore.

Nowhere else
does he stake his claim;
pity you
must bear his name!

As you draw near
(How you have missed her!)
see what’s become
of your fair sister. . .

Come closer, close
as you can get.
You thought you knew her,
and yet

As you gaze
into her face
through clouds
delicate as lace,

You see much
more than blue –
a motley of bruises
old and new!

Look past your envy
of a billion years,
and you will see
whole seas of tears,

Tears that cannot
wash the blood
that stains her deserts
and dyes the flood.

The god of war
will have his way
until his whore
is old and gray. . .

But long before
the pimp is through
I fear she’ll be
as red as you.

Wish her well
as you withdraw,
and tell the universe
what you saw. . .

That a planet
beautiful as this
may never know
a lover’s kiss.

This poem by Gary Lindorff was reprinted courtesy of: ThisCantBeHappening.net

ThisCantBeHappening.net was founded in 2004 as a blog by Dave Lindorff in a quixotic one-man effort to afflict the powerful. As the site gained recognition and readers, Dave realized that it would take more than one journalist to cause any significant degree of affliction. He approached three long-time colleagues, John Grant, Linn Washington and Charles M. Young, and asked if they would be interested in joining him to form a news collective. All three, sharing Dave's profound frustration with the shallowness and fawning complicity of the establishment corporate media (and with the establishment not-for-profit media, too), signed on with alacrity and a shared desire to raise hell.
