A Call to Sanity (1/31/08)
I wrote this when Bush was re-elected, back in 2004. The anger I felt that day still resonates.

I'm not sure this poem very specifically answers the given question; it is, however, very much on topic. This has gone unpublished, though a friend of mine wrote a song to it (he's unsigned by any label, though) and it was pretty widely emailed, from what I understand.
A hero kneels upon the sand,
His eyelids lightly closed.
Calm desert stars above the land
Of liberty imposed.
