The Viewing of the Facts Now Passed Away Is at Six O'Clock
Opposites Day, November 2009
by Tantra Bensko

This month he learned:

Hypnotic regressions
Make memories LESS accurate;

His favorite expose journalist
Is— a disinformationist;

His girlfriend
Asked him to the week-long festival
So she could learn about it from someone
In the know—— and then take another guy instead;

The Maharishi effect
was a FAKED report;

His friend who rescues
Mind control victims
Is their HANDLER;

Many people who didnít like Bush
Were disgruntled because
They thought he should be killing MORE Iraqis;

They still believe planes
Can get around all laws of physics,
Can cause the same effects
As controlled demolition,
Melt steel, implode the buildings in New York.

He learned the 7 brave airmen had been killed
who revealed that the B 52s carrying nukes sent
To Louisiana were not from some malfunction,
But on Bush's orders.
That people still are trusting what they hear
On the news. Will they believe the illusion
Behind another inside job attack
And turn against Iran?

He wants a professional disillusionist
With long black lashes
To take his flowing, red red velvet clothes
And prance about with them,
To raise his milk white arm,
And to open, with blue blue eyes of wonder,
The Cabinet of Outrageous Lies
In The House of Lucid Wakes.
