Jesse Mitchell The Future is Vampires Contra Colonel Edgar Chamorro testified before the World Court of the United Nations in the 1980’s on the particular troubles of the Contra war in Nicaragua and Honduras: The future is vampires. Vampires and flies. The future will be dry. And the future is falling, The future is all the evil things hanging in the air. We were told that only way to defeat the Sandinistas was to use the same tactics attributed to the Communist insurgencies worldwide by the CIA. Tremble. The future is falling. The future is thin air and falling chunks of Earth And fireballs, left over smoke. Kill, kidnap, rob, torture‌Many civilians were killed in cold blood. Many others were tortured, mutilated, raped, robbed and otherwise abused‌ The future is Vietnams And firebombs Fireballs, left over sparks. 18
