Spitting rhymes about CIA torture crimes
 
I joined the Peace Poets and Witness Against Torture in January 2015 when they visited Washington, DC to drop some lyrics about CIA human rights abuses. While I've performed this poem since 2009 (in settings including Bush torture lawyer John Yoo's classroom at UC Berkeley Law School), this was the first time I added a new closing verse about international complicity and the CIA's latest innovations in murder with impunity.
