On The 3rd Day

Talking heads suggest that dissenters
must disclaim themselves by "supporting the troops"
to privately detest - not publicly protest what they do

Reality box paradox adding big brother "who-rah!"
over reality's home companion night vision screens
digitally exploding the laser-guided dawn in Baghdad

Nausea vision throughout the day - air sickness
converting mushroom clouds of death fireball
carnage into world living room video games

Yet, the streets are filled with hearts and souls
anti-war demands, prayers and screams resound
and dissent will not be constrained by hypocrisy
