happy thanksgiving (or whatever that means)

Each passing Thanksgiving
brings us closer to the fall of the US empire
a cause most worthy of your efforts. 
With the expiration of the most violent and predatory 
nation in the history of the world,
comes the opportunity, 
maybe for the first time, 
for the people living in this part world 
to develop rituals of their own that do not 
begin upon piles of dead bodies from here 
and there and 
there and there.
An opportunity to live in harmony with 
the rest of the planet.
Isn’t it beautiful to consider that
a field of marigolds will one day grow 
over a slaughterhouse?
