IN THE STREETS,
OF THE ANGELS,
THE WORLD ON FIRE.
IN THE STATE,
OF SAINT LOUIS,
AMERICA SPINS TRUE.
IN THE RACE,
WHO GETS THE BILL?
IN THE HOPE,
OF A HEAVEN,
HOW THROUGH WE SEE?
GOVERNED BY LAWS.
WITH OR WITHOUT,
ON WE GOVERN,
GOVERNING BY LAWS!
WITH OPPOSITES ATTRACTING,
ON WE JOURNEY,
UNITING IN HOPE!
WITH A BUSH,
WHAT DID WE SEE?
J. PETER HOGAN
[Note: Due to Hollingsworth v. Perry and DOMA this week I dug up
this old poem written first to be primarily a poem as a journalistic
covering of the Rodney King news. As that was so it was also
written to live as part of my collection THE CHARGE OF NEW
FEDERALISM and as the opening piece for such. A meaning that
may go lost in it is that of Rodney King basis as well as a meaning as
meant to have been a neurological concern for fires in President Bush’s
brain and his capacity in those days to handle being so “on fire” and as too
much like Lincoln then as of having kept the world together as like of a
civil warring by Saddam Hussein. For its name alone I don’t see how
justice can be served with SCOTUS allowing loose language confusion
of “same sex marriage” to be of a affirmation by them while really of a
request for different sex right and not same sex rights as those of those of
different sexes as of the rights from their Creator to working further
[Note: Yes this was one of my last pieces of my new PC
political correctness in a fuller and better new way to write
generally and less racially and so such still as much before
the Clintons had been long in trying to sound like I was with
the more earlier works of my THE CHARGE OF NEW
FEDERALISM collection. The Clintons were a huge
disappointment about such though greatly to personal political
benefiting to themselves. The Clintons still have the story to be
told as I know it of them of being immoral by/with their choices
to do less for an available greater good in their times and for special
spousal selfisness - for having worked to make positive change
meant for all get worked to be more polarizing and political in a
great partisanship and to working then for fewer people generally.
As per this poem it still is remembered that they like to read it as of
the one primary meaning it was meant to be not about while stirring
such consideration to be yet in the general air of concerns for professionalism
at least for those much of Los Angeles and Hollywood.]
