O’ The Tangled Web

O’ the tangled web

Woven for personal gain

Clouding our judgement

Until we find it’s too late

And regret has bankrupt us

This, the path we choose

Chosen many times before

Has not deterred us

We are creatures of habit

Believing a fool’s wisdom


~~ Dominic R. DiFrancesco ~~

History Repeats

History repeats

When in the hands of such fools

Yet we act as sheep

Why no popular outrage

Why no rolling of their heads

In conflict we lose

Covert forces we back turn

Unleashing turmoil

Whose weapons do they use…ours

Perpetuating terror

Al-Qaeda is ours

A monster we created

Now there is ISIS

Born of a foul petri dish

What could we have expected

When we choose to interfere


~~ Dominic R. DiFrancesco ~~
