What would you like to do?
A Whistleblower Prayer
(To the whistleblowers,
in hope that they stay alive.)
Thanks for systemic corruption
and disregard for the rule of law.
Thanks for the transparent lies and
carefully framed talking points.
Thanks for the profitable arms sales
to be used against us in next year's war.
Thanks for manufactured consent.
"You all saw him. He had a gun."
Thanks for the American dream,
placing profit first until
the bare greed shines through.
Thanks for always shooting the messenger.
Thanks for hate peddling politicians,
that fear anything they don't understand.
Thanks for the surveillance state
and the war against privacy.
Thanks for another Crypto War,
while the real war criminals walk free.
Thanks for presidential pardons,
given only when politically convenient.
Thanks for defending title and flag,
betraying the oath to the Constitution.
Thanks for always taking special care
to make sure no good deed goes unpunished.
[with apologies to William Burroughs]

Thank you, Pres. Obama, for finally doing the bare minimum and
*eventually* freeing Chelsea Manning. As a long-time believer in
"better late than never", my thanks really is sincere.
There is still a lot of work left to do.
