The Silent Screams of Slaves (english)

The Silent Screams of Slaves

This country is drowning. We are in titanic debt, sick with pollution and fatally addicted to oil. The economy was a pyramid scheme which disappeared with our savings, resources and jobs. Now we are battling each other for the crumbs from an obscene feast of profit. The terrorizing fear we have is because we cannot see the substance that is rising over our heads. We are thrashing below the surface of a deep invisible poison that we cannot fathom the bottom of.

We are drowning in the blood from murders we commit in our wars. We are annihilating innocent children, families and communities with our troopís guns, helicopters, planes and bombs. Agents of despair are killing for the benefit of our privileges and their assignments fill the stormy sea of our doom with human corpses. We ignore and then we forget their dying screams.

The more money we make, the newer car we drive, the bigger home we build, the better we look and the larger the group we hide in assures us only one thing, chaos, poverty and disease will devour someone else before us. All our prosperity, luxury and mobility have been gotten cheaply on the backs of workers in sweatshops, mines, prison factories, and pesticide drenched plantations world wide.

Our exclusive party is paid for by unseen slaves from ancient cultures decimated by our ignorance, arrogance and greed. The truth is the whole sale liquidation of the living planet we depend on for our daily bread is done over the freshly killed bodies of simple children and their dismembered parents.

Our decision to not question our countries overseas methods and our retail purchases of approval bring us to this hard line. This nationís character at war has become its destiny. Former hired hands now practice the tricks of the trade here at home. Our world wide spree of assassination, torture and indiscriminate mega death has taught those who now rise against us. Once our pawn and then an opposing king our adversary showed how atrociously we will lie, provoke and murder to out run a snarling demon, the truth about our heinious crimes.

Will the stench from the carcasses in our basement drive us to destroy our house? Will our final murder be the whole earth in a nuclear suicide? Are there enough tears to wash away all this blood?
