      A - I N F O S  N E W S  S E R V I C E

In a letter received yesterday from Anarchist POW Rob Los

"I've been trying to collect my thoughts about Bush II's
war between terrorists, but it's been too overwhelming.
I've had to resort to poetry. Here's a sequence of haiku."


Thousands of people,
Their living hearts now silent;
They all died in vain.

The powerless ones
Sent us a message that day.
We did not listen.

"Is democracy
Something reserved for the West
and denied to us?

"Why do you hate us
when your country inspires us?
Our rulers serve yours.

"Is it about oil?
Is this more precious to you
Than our very blood?

"Killing Iraqis,
Killing Palestinians,
Why does it go on?

"Is death all you know?
Are you listening to us?
Join us now in death."

This war without end,
With no clear goal or reason,
Took OUR freedom first.

The fools in power
Don't know what they're doing, yet
They DEMAND support.

Perpetual war
To cover up the mistakes
of the CIA.

All those people died
To wake us from our dream world.
We watch "Survivor".

Weep America,
For our appointed leader
Has doomed our children.

-Rob Los Ricos
