there shall be no trial no jury listening to a barrage of words point counterpoint volleys fired into the air by uniformed attorneys whose solemn oath is that they will represent with dignity courtesy and integrity each element of this creed it would seem has been somehow operationally defined but that is of little concern for our present case for even though life saving food and medicine was intentionally withheld from dying children no charges will be brought it’s just a simple issue of national security our political will against their dying children that’s not crime it’s the way the game is played a game of chicken played with other people’s lives
it’s a free market those children torn from their parents’ arms are commodities made in the usa an adoption bonanza for sex slave dealers a business only interrupted briefly by public outrage but the media’s gone and public concern is on monday night football so dealers as you were did anyone really care about those black children murdered by the police when even the president says he could kill someone and the american public would forgive and forget no doubt with the claim of fake news so officers as you were oh and mentioning denials have you heard the one about where 15 saudi assassins enter a consulate and only they come out saying what murder but they have no fear for the path was clearly outlined by the us president whose outrage over the event has lasted as long as his tweets so assassins as you were and one cannot have such a verse without mentioning for you to forget the weekly target practice israeli soldiers take on palestinian children world outrage with a flurry of words but in the end soldiers as you were should i mention starving children here and abroad diseased ravaged bodies from war and natural worldwide disasters oh probably not your favorite podcast or roman colosseum type event is certainly due to begin so as you were
“As you were” is a standard military command. It means, literally, “[return] to your previous posture”.
i must apologize for my verbal outburst such behavior has become quite inappropriate in an age of denial i should have ignored the indiscriminate and brutal slaughter of palestinian children and accepted whole-heartedly the sexual assaults of women and the adultery by the leader of the so-called democratic free world resigning myself to a judicial and congressional system that has failed every american tenet of justice and just sipped on my white chocolate latte and been happy
