Is William Owens Happy In Heaven?

Sat, 04/15/2017 - 21:52 -- skybird

If William Owens caught sight
of the monstrous tugging at 
the heart strings of the Chief
Theatric Officer Trump & the
so cheap & cynical little
throw-away line of "The
Bible teaches us ..."

 

& saying Owen was likely
happy in heaven because
the chamber "broke a record"
for the length of its ovation,

 

would he be happy to see
his death & his mother's 
desperate suffering used 
by a shallow vain opportunist
as backdrop to his coming
out as presidential?

 

& whilst orchestrating grief
for the folks at home but then
"They lost Ryan" is thrown
out there because heaven 
forbid Trump could take
any responsibility for this 
soldiers death,

 

heaven forbid.
