"For Eli" (Fu** Your Yellow Ribbon) Andrea Gibson at the 2006 poetry slam

This "issue", in effect, is what opened my eyes to 9/11 truth three years ago. Andrea and Remo could/should collaborate maybe . . .

At what point do our silent citizens and our spineless Congress say enough? We've been waiting too long.

Yes, god damn America. In this sense, former U.S. Marine Reverend Wright was right. The African American community has known truths for a long time that many of we(us?) white folks are just waking up to . . .

"For Eli"

By Andrea Gibson

Eli came back from Iraq
and tattooed a teddy bear onto the inside of his wrist
above that a medic with an IV bag
