Yesterday Was Another Day

Yesterday was Another Day

Yesterday was another day just like any day before.
When another president thinks
they can bully and bomb their way to peace
in the name of humanitarianism
in the name of doing the right thing
in the name of justice and freedom.
in the name of increasing his favorability or TV ratings
trying to sound like he’s not insane
being the conduit for raking in the profits
for the industrial-military complex
as Ike warned in the 1950’s.
