Art/Act: Twig of poetree in progress + Welcome All New Members :)

Dear All,
Very cool, thanx for all the participatiion, et al! It’s said that art has no words, it’s of the eye, and yours are, as is your site, work, life, vision. I thought I’d allow everyone a view of my latest poem in its evolution, so, below is the fourth draft; and every draft after will be posted in this thread- ’til the final one. 
 
                Stark’s
Hungerstrike against Iraqi War funding
Going strong, with Medea and Codepink.
"No more funds for war and occupation,
"We…" need healthcare andf education".
"12 billion wasted on this war a month,
That’s $5000. every second"; trillions
Your grandkids will pay higher taxes for
Their whole lives!  Supplemental war
Bill will be voted on in a few days,
Bush wants another 184 million for it,
An unnecessary one, they hop[e to make
"Unending", Kofi Anan said is "illegal";
McCain says, "it may last 100 years"-
Don’t let remocrats robe you, your kids,
Grandkids of their livlihoods, stop war
Funding, stop the war, now, bring our
Troops home; if you support them.  Liz
Yelled across the street, "time to go",
Then cops arrested her, we were going
Home, it didn’t matter, more police
Crime against free speech. Unlike the
Cries of 10 year old boys not let out of
Fallujah with their families so the next
2 generations of Iraqi men can be killed
Now, "We,…" will not be silenced.
They can’t silence the thundering cry
For justice globally, "We, the people…"
Won’t let them; tell Congress we want our
Families home.  Stop the war, now!
 
Notes for revisions:  Make twice the size; timeframed events separated alittle, vigil demonstrations, State Dept. demonstrations, demonstrations in Congress, presence at hearings; include prop1.org 27 year vigil against nuclear weapons, etc., by Thomas and Concepcion of Wash., D.C., Peacehouse, in front of the Whitehouse, if can; also, partial victory with the House voting it down, and now onto the Senate; put .org on groups names in poem; include some testimony by Iraqi War Vets against the war you witnessed in Rayburn building: "What makes the Green grass grow", the drill Sgt. asks, and "blood, blood, blood", is the required answer.  Routinely received orders, on point, "any observer be fired upon", including anyone on a cell phone, onlookers, etc..  "For the longest there was no tracking and intelligence operations on the Syrian/Iraqi border, etc., contributing to thousands of coalitions trooops deaths".- etc..
 
A poems line comes to mind 🙂 "…and death (murder) shall have no dominion…", Dylan Thomas. Wrote this twig of poetree in a similar style 🙂
C’est La Unvie
A million monarchs lie dead, though,
No less sociological programming of
Upper-middle to rich classes with
Decadence, affluence, inclusion, is.
No less societal determination of
Middle to lower, being excluded by
Division and conquering, privation.
Yet, they, on wing no more, still fly
In our spirit’s eye, heal humanities’
Heart. While their silent cry echoes
The 33,000 species extinct each year,
A rate not seen since the last ice age
Ensued; does it move you?
Does your curiosity ask why?
Will you, on this 33rd Earth Day, allow
A tear for all life’s fallen? Consider
The losses economic apartheid incurs,
Mirrored by the divide human-centricity
Has levied? Our underlying duplicitous
Disregard for life, greed and oil fueled,
Won’t abate for our existence, will you?
( For the beautiful butterflies, et tu, mon amis; written one and a
half years before the 33rd. )
