Black Agenda Report

Raytheon’s Raven caws “War—Evermore!”

Not wind beneath Negroz wings…

Did we ever say he was our hero?

Something we wished we could be—

cheering genocidal sorties illegal—

Pentagon with the wind beneath F-16 wings?

Raytheon’s Raven caws, “War—Forevermore!”

just like before—for his Masters of War

Warlords of Wall Street speaking in tongues of

Trillions

Tapping into pigment of Negro imaginations—

bloodthirsty machinations. Negroz claim skin

in the game; claim wind beneath bomber wings

was born in Spring-spilled blood like Dr. King’s…

Raytheon’s Raven caws, “War—Forevermore!”

just like before—for his Masters of War

Warlords of Wall Street. Their Gross National

Product’s charred bodies, bloated bellies, head-

less torsos of other peoples’ children christened

“Collateral Damage;” “Civilian Casualties;” Other

Palestinian-tested/proven bomb targets abroad—

Other domestic class war prisoners; Sheltering in

Poverty…

Raytheon’s Raven caws, “War—Forevermore!”

just like before—for his Masters of War…

Warlords of Wall Street whose revolving door;

five-sided fund house—ATM—Land of $10 Pencils,

$500 Hammers; grifter generals; greasy-thumbed

accountants—Whose esprit de corps for fighting for

More secret no-bid contracts—For fighting phantom

smoke and mirror enemies of the month’s unparalleled!!

Raytheon’s Raven caws, “War—Forevermore!”

just like before—for his Masters of War

Warlords of Wall Street—who unleashed Maddog

Mattis and Boss Tweet; bellicose Bomb Gates, W

and the more effective Drone Ranger—

Declaring U.S. imperialism’s STILL the main danger…
