2006 Thanksgiving Prayer
Thanks for a nation of new brown people to punish and kill
Thanks for our main stream media, to whose lies we can thrill
Thanks for our President's attention deficit disorder,
Thanks for our constitution, even though it's now a bit shorter
Thanks for torture, extradition and the secret tucked away prison
Thanks for the American flag blindfolds, to block out our vision
Thanks for our troops dying over there and not here
Thanks for our Pundit overlords, who assure us they aren't queer
Thanks for a most Christian god, and America so uniquely blessed
Thanks for tax cuts for the rich and our minimum wage repressed
Thanks for $10,000 plates at Political fundraisers
Thanks for a patriotic line that we can tightrope like razors
But Thank you the most for showing us the truth of our democracy
and forcing us all to kneel, bow and scrape at the altar of hypocrisy.
My Thanks this Thanksgiving are for Americans like Hunter Thompson, William Burroughs, Keith Olbermann, Matt Taibbi, Navyswan, Actor212, Fred, John Amato, Mirth, Buck, QuestionGirl, Bacchus, Larry Johnson, Juan Cole, Amy Goodman, Johnathan Alter, Seymour Hersh, Ava Lowery, the crew at General de Jesus and the thousands of others out there who aren't afraid to tell it like it fucking is.
