Twenty Lines

Twenty Lines are not enough.
Twenty Lines are not enough to expose
             all the deceptions and lies.
Twenty Lines are not enough to recount
             the ineptitude and incompetence.
Twenty Lines are not enough to mourn
            the loss of young American lives.
Twenty Lines are not enough to describe how
             a government can rule using the propaganda of fear.
Twenty Lines are not enough to decry
             Congress’ abdication of duty to the Constitution.
Twenty Lines are not enough to give details of why
             checks and balances now only relates to the payments
                         of US dollars to corrupt contractors and war profiteers.
Twenty Lines are not enough to lament how
             the Bill of Right has transformed into a bill of goods.
Twenty Lines are not enough to capture all the crimes
             perpetrated by the Bush Administration on the American people.
Twenty Lines are not enough to even mention
             the tragedy of Katrina.
Twenty Lines are not enough.
