little Eichmanns

 

for Ward Churchill

 

getting fired for telling the truth

is nothing to be ashamed of

 

maybe it’s for the best

 

maybe the little Eichmanns

reflected on

the evils of their ways

while praying to their

blond, blue-eyed Jesus

on that fateful day

 

or maybe they didn’t

 

at any rate

 

America’s vengeance

for 3,000

translated into

1 million dead in Iraq and

a somewhat smaller total

in Afghanistan

 

it depends on how exactly

you figure the numbers,

I guess

 

whether you include

“collateral damage”

and deaths from starvation

in the final sums

of the Empire’s reckoning

 

anyway

who’s counting?
