Bush Satire - The Bushiad
Bush Satire - The Bushiad and The Idyossey
Bush Satire - The Bushiad and The Idyossey
Bush Satire - By Victor Littlebear

Foreword

A Bush satire in Homeric style, The Bushiad and The Idyossey use satire and irony to recount events during nine months from December 2002 through September 2003, and were inspired by events as they occurred. Narrative epic poems of 24 chapters each, they feature George Bush and the war in Iraq.

As vividly described 2,500 years ago in Homer's epic poems of the battle of Troy and the struggle of one warrior to return home The Iliad and The Odyssey, war is the product of powerful, ambitious, often insecure men who have difficulty separating their personal motivations from those of the state. In Homer's works, these conflicts are abetted by powerful immortal gods who use mortals to satisfy their needs, and who work behind the scenes to fix events and outcomes. As war occurs, the "honor" of battle is always at great cost in lives and suffering. Author and poet Robert Graves found abundant satire in Homer's work.

The blood lust that overtakes the minds of men on a periodic basis continues unabated in our modern age. In The Bushiad, and The Idyossey the Greek gods of old are supplanted by contemporary corporate gods, also immortal and with insatiable needs for increased wealth and power. Like Homer's Greek gods they do all they can to make sure the outcome is fixed.

In this Bush Satire, The Bushiad and The Idyossey, George Bush, Donald Rumsfeld, Dick Cheney, Condoleeza Rice, Paul Wolfowitz, Colin Powell and others in the Bush Court are the players in this modern epic, fostering conflict and warfare in concert with the corporate gods. Saddam Hussein of Iraq, Osama bin Laden, Kim Sung Il of North Korea, "Old" Europe, The United Nations, Canada and any that stand in their way or that can be used to further their ends are vulnerable. The Bushiad and The Idyossey demonstrate that when power-mad, testosterone-poisoned religious fanatics in league with greedy multinational corporations wield unlimited military might, all humanity is vulnerable. Homer would recognize the tale.
