Cymbala, a poem by Tom W.

Restless legs, sleepless nights
we got stuff
that’ll set you right.

But if you use
a natural cure
We’ll ban ’em all, rest assured

Sore throat or heart attack
This lil pill
will get you back on track

You say our stuffs bad
and you go astray
We’ll put our guys in the FDA.

Side effects include
dizzyness, suicidal mood
Difficulty catching your breath
and in some cases…..Death.

With our high tech
we can feed the planet
Take a big bite of our pomegranate.

If our GMO contaminates your crops
We’ll sue your ass
and send in the black ops.

If your’e feeling down
and a bit depressed
Take our cure, and you’ll be at your best.

If you sue us cuz
you get sick from our wares
The judge and Jury has the controlling shares

Side effects include
dizzyness, suicidal mood
Difficulty catching your breath
and in some cases…..Death

NO WAR on IRAN! Protest Vigil SAT Feb 11th, 12PM-1:30PM 5 Points Fountain (Greene & Harden)

Folks from Occupy Spartanburg, Occupy Greenville and likely Occupies from across the state of SC will be attending the No War In Iran peace rally next Saturday in Columbia.  YOU are invited too!  Please email occupyspartanburg@gmail.com or hit us up on the facebook group http://www.facebook.com/groups/265627410139075/ for  carpool organizing.

From CarollinaPeace.org:  Take the Military Option off the Table!  We stand opposed to any attack or war against Iran and urge diplomacy instead.  Threats and military intervention will not solve the problem of Iran seeking nuclear weapons, but will only exacerbate the situation.  Iran has obligations under the Nuclear Nonproliferation Treaty (NPT) and should be held to those by diplomatic pressure only.  It should be noted that Israel, Pakistan, and India have all refused to sign the NPT treaty and have developed nuclear weapons: why aren’t we putting the screws on them, but singling out Iran?
