gop…

the brown bag prophet
was sitting
quietly
at
a park bench
writing
with
furrowed brows
in
an old notebook
as if
he were
attempting
to
solve some
deep mystery
when i inquired
as
to what he was working on
he said
i’m 
trying to figure out
how the republican party
might redefine themselves
once they
sell out
the american public
during the trump
impeachment trial in the senate
i’ve come up
with some
but
i doubt
that
they’ll sell
the political product
he said
what do you think about
one of these
for
gop
grand obsolete party
goons of putin
gag order presidentship
gaga over putin
guilty of panjandrum
government of pandemonium
guardians of pantophobia
gouging oppressed public
i
interrupted his long list
and
said
you’re right
neither you
nor
they
can sell anyone
on
turning your back
on
the constitutional fact
that
no man
is
above the law

  1. I have been pondering recently why the republican party continues to be called the GOP by journalists and editorialists. There doesn’t seem to be anything grand about them – especially not their actions and the fact that they have lost membership. Reminds me of the Moral Majority bumper sticker stating it was neither.
