dogs under the table…

what shall man place
upon god’s table
for the feast
of
salvation
what morsel
will man offer
that
is
uniquely his
other than
the dried bones
of
sons and daughters
sacrified
in wars
for
man’s pursuit
of
wealth
and
fame

american marionette…

putin’s puppet
dances
on
strings
of
lies
and
alibis
and
without
a backbone
it’s
quick
to blame
others
for
all
its missteps
but
alas
unlike
the puppet
who dances
bebop
when
his
master
gets up
and
leaves
it
cannot
stand
alone
so
falls flat
upon its face
whimpering 
in the night

what do you call it when….

the brown bag prophet
said
it seems to me
that
the republican party
is in favor
of
assisted suicide
why
do you think that
i replied
well
he said
look at their
proposed
health care plan
kevorkian
would have been
proud
of
how they’re
helping people die
by
denying
proper care
but
i said
those people
don’t
want to die
oh
he said
then perhaps
we should call it
assisted homicide
and
didn’t kevorkian
go to prison
for
his actions

an insurance question…

i was wondering
since it was an accident
what’s there to forgive

spiritual edification trump’s thinking…

staring at line
inside starbucks
the brown bag prophet
said
the russian government
could not have
expected more
from
the president
they elected
for the united states
their agent’s
america first
homily
has divorced our nation
from
the world community
affording
china
and
russia
with
numerous opportunities
to replace us
as
a world leader
and
as
a trusted partner
on global concerns
seems
we have a man
attempting to run
one of the world’s
largest budgets
that has filed
for chapter 11 bankruptcy
six times
and
has cheated
common man contractors
out of their
due wages
i not saying
this constitutes
a vote of
no confidence
but
i suspect
there’s going to be
long lines
at
our nation’s
soup kitchens

es muy complicado…

this
dying stuff
is far more
difficult
than
advertised
for example
you must
have
an attorney
to
clarify
the disposition
of
all assets
in order
to assure
that
some
portion
of
your hard
fought for
residual fortune
anything
over a dollar
falls into this category
according to eye penny
government collectors
is
apportioned
as
you wished
you heard
me right
some
portion
see
there’s
the federal
and
state
grave robbers
to contend with
and
relatives
that
only
know
your name
from
the obit
who arise
like
the second coming
once
they know
you”re
truly dead
and
may
have
something
they want
there will be
of course
the usual fees
for
your burial
a penalty
no doubt
for dying
since
i’m fairly certain
that
the heavenly host
and/or
their counter-revolutionaries
aren’t
charging
a surcharge
for
ascension
or
descension
