omg...no words but GENIUS.

expresses how I've felt the last week watching BushCo via pumped arms and "advisors" and their man in Georgia attacking Ossetia and provoking the Bear.

I guess the "war on terror" as election bogeyman isn't selling as well this time around. Look how the new Russian scare revived McCain in the polls.

but again: perfect, reminds me of Kenneth Patchen's pioneering inclusion of font sizes and styles and their inherent meanings as part of the overall meaning of a poem. My fave of his: Moon, Sun, Sleep, Birds, Live.

Yes,why not,the poem can be with paintings and music,whatever source....Please challenge to create "combinations of things"which nobody has done yet.

This is VERY cool. The words themselves are powerful but then the way you have done this is mind blowing-ly powerful. Very very good. What a creative idea and important way to express this. It's extremely punchy. It made me really have to slow down and take in EACH word and EVERY meaning. That's good. It makes people think and more importantly....FEEL! Good for you. :) :)
