Benghazi and Book lists ... a poem

Deadly Mix in Benghazi: False Allies and Crude Video: Egyptian protesters tearing down the United States flag at the American Embassy in Cairo on Sept.11, 2012 (Agence France-Presse – Getty Images) New York Times in depth report on the murder of America's Ambassador J. Christopher Stevens

       Benghazi and Book lists

Our world, one world
with Golden Rule logic
is a reality that tempts


and real criminals who invade
armed and ready to kill,
in one way or another...

That all humans are equal
does not equate to all are kind
or honest... or bright.

Justice only is because we know
it does not happen naturally.

There are far too many factors,
too many moods, too many demons,
too many grudges, addictions, drugs...

Crime and corruption and cruelty
are a reality anywhere and everywhere
there are people.

The rule of fair and just laws
is a library of all the many ways
we the people can stop crime...

because wishful thinking won't.
