Spitting In the Wind


The hostages were held in Iran
Nearly seventy days
By the time the Iranians
Said a blockade of their country
Would lead to war.

Talk stays the same…

Longshoreman with patriotic passions
Refused to off load
Ships full of grain
Sitting in Russian ships
Because the USSR was a “bully.”

Talk stays the same…

Now we talk of nuclear weapons,
Terrorist funding, and
Opening trade routes
So wars can be avoided
In the Middle East and Iran.

Talk stays the same…

The world tells of Russia’s might,
Desperation, and
Return to their old ways
With ballsy leaders
And a menacing aura.

Talk stays the same…
