Bodies of Coincidence

What we have in this war on terrorism is a conflict between drug dealers being hunted by a government guilty of drug trafficking. Like a rancid piece of clothing hurtling from a clothesline toward a wall of debris you might make the comparison that this war is just another rock thrown in the most obscene presidential crime in the last one hundred years.
Somewhere in the earth the cadaver of John Wilkes Booth now turned to dust eats away at the insect that crawls by with a twisted memory. How historians of Abraham Lincoln can explain to their readers as if they were a gnat on the wall and why and how the motivations existed for the murder. To define the thoughts of Booth in their own words and for those who read their work to believe them is to believe the official story of any government and its actions.
