Osama bin Ladin is dead?

Osama bin Ladin is dead?

Osama bin Ladin is dead,
my next door neighbor
asks if I am red

I am just telling it
like it is, I say,
suggesting he is too

(and, no, I am some
sort of anarchist, I
say, in the deep
privacy of my head)

Foreclosures, poverty,
hunger, slavery, war,
rape, oil theft, and
more, you see--
why should Osama
bin Ladin's death
mean much to me?

for the people not for rich colonizers


But we lost our way our culture, our art, our self
