To Chris Hedges, for his Empire of Illusion

This wreckage of space and time’s pollution,
was well articulated,
by Chris Hedges’ Empire of Illusion,
The end of literacy,
literally by the triumph of  spectacles, visually,
typical to intolerance,
through misogyny, plutocracies,
and the advance of selling happiness with marketing,
the end of American manufacturing,
the rise of right wing neo-con ideology,
where capitalism will not be
synonymous with democracy.

A well versed rhetor,
and writer of the poor,
A national bestseller sold in stores,
Winner of the Pulitzer Prize Award,
An author who opens eyes and door<
At the Nation Institute
observing the present and future wars,

include this edition into tuition we cannot afford.
