LOS ANGELES

IN THE STREETS,
OF THE ANGELS,
THE WORLD ON FIRE.

IN THE STATE,
OF SAINT LOUIS,
AMERICA SPINS TRUE.

IN THE RACE,
OF HOPE,
WHO GETS THE BILL?

IN THE HOPE,
OF A HEAVEN,
HOW THROUGH WE SEE?

WITH DIVERSITY,
ON TRIAL,
 GOVERNED BY LAWS.

WITH OR WITHOUT,
ON WE GOVERN,
GOVERNING BY LAWS!

WITH OPPOSITES ATTRACTING,
ON WE JOURNEY,
UNITING IN HOPE!

WITH A BUSH,
ON FIRE,
WHAT DID WE SEE?

A note:  Though this poem was inspired to be my piece covering Rodney King incidents, and issues original to Los Angeles, it was worked as well to fit into my collection of political strategized change thinking of THE CHARGE OF NEW FEDERALISM.  “WITH A BUSH,  ON FIRE,  WHAT DID WE SEE”  is meant to be a stanza as window to President Bush having to think about issues about Middle East in such years and as well to possibilities we should be fully pondering as per threat to life of President Bush as part of Saddam Hussein’s strategizing.  If you read “IN THE STATE, OF SAINT LOUIS, AMERICA SPINS TRUE” your are to consider that year’s population distribution “balance point” for the United States of America was in Missouri and that some of collection of THE CHARGE… are two letters of mine to Rep. Gephardt’s office that were when George Stephanopoulus was a top aid and one response that flew back in just a few days from them.  Such August letters were of thinking about Presidential contests and issues but also the world and of concern for how US was to position as people around the world were trying to be better than us yet by becoming more like US governance.  And that I related “balance point” to bicycle wheel truing.  Then I was nearer to old thoughts of biking across America and with skill of truing bike wheels developed in part for such a practical consideration.  George Stephanopoulus had a co-Gephardt equal at such time so that did shortly afterwards marry Dora Bush and bring her into the infamous Koch family.  Such August letters predated change in Russia by just weeks and yet seem still to have been correct from me on a pre-positioning even for such - that was of an “energy” not a specific geo-specific understanding.  If you want to suggest this is about sex or dirty politics and Hollywood romantic charge - you can but that is an entirely separate lay of this work that though seemingly here was here for those few I was sharing thoughts with to be of a charge to help me keep it personally from such - but that is now an old disappointment with President Clinton and too many Democrats.  Of complications from my voluntary assistance came times fictions I had worked as if marketing fiction were treated as if non-fiction actual concerns yet when not and to leaving me to write new fiction to cover old fiction being taken as non-fiction and to find people that could benefit from the unsolicited “help” as “thanks” from Dems being directed at me without it being at all correct or appropriate to may actual non-fiction.  I stand on my expressed opinions that Madam Sec Mrs. Clinton is near our worst Top Diplomat ever - she may have skills for such job but she is wrong for these times and wrong for of her previous times recent as preceding to such time she is now most wrong for, for U.S.
