The Light of Howard Zinn

 

The people's historian,
and activist Howard Zinn,
was a teacher of civil disobedience
to stop the oppressive forces
that start wars and ruin men.

His death was timely in that it challenged
President Obama's 2010 State of the Union address.
Internet news printed Zinn's prediction
“Obama is going to be a mediocre president.”
News of his death,
world renowned American dissenter,
disturbed the airwaves broadcasting
President Obama's polished propaganda
for the nuclear and coal industry.
His lack of visionary solutions to the
energy crisis was made crystal clear.
Obama's freeze on social programs
while excluding the beefed-up military
hurts the people and lacks basic common sense.

Zinn's death is a milestone in the people's history
while Obama's address is a footnote in
organized warfare and corporate crime.
Zinn's death made us happy
because his died at the perfect time!
His message got out on the day Americans most needed it,
when Obama was trying to pull the wool over our eyes.
From the grave, Zinn's brilliant life was a light beam
in a dark Empire whose inner light can no longer shine.
