For: My Catbird Seat

It is not “conspiracy theory” to suggest that leaders of nations betray their people into wars. It is undeniable fact. Falk, in this poem reminds us of the betrayal of the century.

All poetry is an investigation or an inquiry, and the best evokes or reminds. It prods the soul, and the awareness of humanity and God which resides therein. The harder the probe, the better, more effective the poetry.

But, one must have access to one’s soul and that which resides within to appreciate the power of poetry. Some call it “God Awareness,” “self-awareness,” “the Universal Spirit,” or something of that nature… but by whatever name it must be accessible.

    The ‘Veteran Intelligence Professionals for Sanity (VIPS)’ has sent a Memorandum to Ben Obama – warning him that Israel is planning to attack Islamic Republic this month. Israeli leaders have been assured by the leaders of the Jewish Lobby that once Iran counter-arrack Israel – Obama will have no choice to enter the war on Israel side.

    The gloom of the Iraqi people has ended with despair. May the perpetrators of aggression take a lesson and refrain from doing what they have done in Iraq, as other wise another front that of Iran is just beginning to be opened? Mr. Falk Sir, as long as a single soul of your passion lives on this earth we will have hope. You are our beacon of hope.
