THE SUPREME POWER
READ THE POEM +/-
Ben Heine - Cartoons
Annan to US: Stay fully engaged
"More than ever, today, Americans, like the rest of humanity, need a functioning global system through which the world's peoples can face global challenges together. And in order to function, the system still cries out for far-sighted American leadership, in the Truman tradition," he said.
The supreme power is America.
The supreme unaided America
Casts away the many nations,
Discarding the various faces.
We must remember them!
We must trace the fallen,
The selfless troops of slaughter,
The beaten, shot, and bombed.
The blood still rears up like untamed death.
Tortured souls, arrows drifting on
Course toward a yawning Persian Gulf
To be emptied there, forever missing.
O! Great land of freedom!
See thyself in the rivers manifestation
And fall upon thy bloody knees,
Humbled, before the world comes calling.
Profess thy sins, divulge thy wrongs.
This earth’s soul screeches death's song!
If thou answer not... darkness will rumble;
shall the future be created?
