Heated arguments divide us-drought hearts.City thrives/country bankrupt
Selling off stock rather than selling stocks.When it rains,even the rain is angry
It spits at us with counted drops in heated streets.It demands attention -clouds with no content
-ion hover above and within us.We cede only when results pour in-floods,Tsunami (public opinions)
Mass media excluding mass demonstrations.Beatings in public Squares now include American.
Police are paid to pepper spray young children.TSA strip search babies/grand parents in wheelchairs
Black rain of anger turns to cynicism.No change means NO CHANGE in the prevailing power system
Presidents prattle ,shifting employment deckchairs,polls of public opinion sinking
Sports channels turn up the volume and reduce intellectual content
No one can debate without rancor ,bitterness ,anger ,malice,spite
"It's a hard rain gonna fall""Baby ,the rain must fall""Raindrops keep falling on my head"
Peacefully,people are gathering-even homeless huddle together
When rain returns,it may sweep clean these troubled streets
spill in to gutters of clean,clear,flowing energies
Dr Suzuki says "the energies we manifest to water reflect us"
I see your image in these waters.It is smiling.Change is us.

George Clooney is my Michael Moore-SYRIANA,THE AMERICAN,IDES OF MARCH
We have a Democratic Party government stymied by rightwing Republican ranters
Pressure groups (TEA PARTIES)dictate negative policies over elected candidates
Think tanks subsidized by Corporations find ways to promote financial elitism
and two endless allegedly finished wars grind on forever eating our blood and treasure
Compromised candidates resign-yet more demand our attention
seeking that idealistic demographic that will activate change in our divided nation
This is where play comes in-and presentation.Projection of image/and clear direction
To see and hear the truth behind headlines-to see talking head spout lies
to awaken to the reality that politics itself divides-is a reminder 
that party politics and Presidencies are dinosaurs still claiming to be alive
