April 6, 2012 | Misty Rowan is a poet/activist from Minneapolis who believes art and activism are essentially the same thing. She read these three poems at the MPAC-sponsored Anti-Drone rally on April 6 to great acclaim.
She is a member of the Anti War Committee (.org) and she won the VERVE grant for spoken word poetry in 2012. You can check out her poetry at missteatree.com.
Here's a sample from one of her poems in this collection: On Military Drones (and tearing them to pieces).
We are the purveyors of death and atrocity in these parts of the world
and then you wonder why they hate us ???
So you tell me, who is the real terrorist? Rebel with a gun or the
smiling politician? Whatever gets the job done, and these days
the job is as easily done as the push of a button
by some pimple faced kid in a bunker in Nevada, somewhere.
Did you know that the controls for these drones are compatible with
a Play Station? This is not a coincidence.
They are spoon-feeding this to your kids, so I suggest you get acquainted.
Because drones are the future of warfare that already is.
