a child’s play…

a child's play

let’s play a game
of
pretend
you pretend
with
a sincere stare
that you
truly care
about
the problems
of
others
their welfare
and
rights
to make
independent choices
under
the mantle
of
freedom
and as part
of
this dolos script
let’s
have you say
that race
and
social status
have nothing
to do
with
what you’ve proposed
say
you’re
merely
protecting
against voter fraud
and
only have justice
as
the center piece
of
your policies
oh
and let’s throw in
that
political ambition
and
power
are not
the stimuli
for
the actions
and
threats
that
you’ve made
those heavy handed measures
are
to defend
freedom
it’s
really
not
fascist
and i’ll pretend
that all you
say
and
do
isn’t
just about
you

texas reintroduces slavery…

gop_superlatives

with the blessings
of
the supreme court
texas
has brought back
a slave society
socially
economically
and
politically dependent
on
slave labor
from
women
women
like
those old
grand plantation ladies
that were kept
for
the entertainment
and
breeding
purposes
of
men
men who now
quote
from
the old testament
as if
they’d
ever
bothered
to
read it
all they know
is
that
women
have gotten
just
too uppity
and
need to be reminded
that men
rule the roost
so
a new law
to shackle
the
girls
to
the domestic sphere
nursing
and
taking care
of
their children
as well as
cooking
house cleaning
and
washing
the men’s
dirtied underwear
for
it was clearly
written
on the walls
of
the alamo outhouse
there can only
be
one star
in
texas
a man

got a clean hanky in my pocket…

a mannequin

been feeling
poorly
these last
few
days
had a fever
and
congestion
in
my chest
but
it ain’t nothing
to
worry ’bout
cuz
my friend told me
there
ain’t no such a thing
as
germs
or
virus
said
he read it
on
the internet
so
it must be true
i was gonna
talk to him
’bout
my current condition
but
i read
in the paper
he died
yesterday
in
the hospital
but
i’m not worried
i
got a clean
hanky
in
my
burial suit
pocket

 

 

about that gnat in your soup…

about that gnat in your soup

i want
to
sincerely
express
my appreciation
for
your honest
statement
of
your deepest trepidations
but
as a mild point
of
perspective
i liked
to
call to your attention
to
this year’s
169 thousand deaths
of
mothers
that occurred
during
childbirth
oh
and
the
2 million hectares
of
forest
that has been lost
to erosion
erosion
produced
by
man’s negligence
of
the planet
oh
and one last thing
to mention
the
23 thousand people
who died
of
hunger

today
but
your serious
concerns
about
the availability
of
live lobsters
in
your local
market
will
of
course
be
given
appropriate
consideration

do you feel lucky…well, do ya, punk…

do you feel lucky

step right up
and
place
your bets
bet
whatever dollar amount
you wish
there are
no
limits
but
all bets
regardless
of
the wager
are
for
your life
toss the dice
of
climate change
where
the words
of
the game
are
loaded
and
suggest
you can win
but
the reality
is
the house
always wins
and
in this case
the
house
is
death
hey
but
if you’re feeling
lucky
spin
the wheel
of
global warming
watch
the wheel
whirl
like
a planet
out
of control
where
the potential
payout odds
for
survival
are
well
let’s just say
enjoy
the game

 

 

little lamb has gone astray…

no where to be found
not a speck of it
absolutely nil
there’s nothing in sight
as far as the eye can see
weeks ago there it was
but once dollars were flowing
it suddenly disappeared
oh moral courage
lost in the senate

 

an honest mistake…

presidential press drone
explains
the fat guy
thought
portland
was
in afghanistan
his mercenaries
were
well trained
for
murder
but not
for
reasonable reactions
to
unarmed citizens
citizens
doing what
our
forefathers
did
when
they were faced
with
the tyranny
of
an imperial regime

 

trump murders the easter bunny…

many of you
have
accepted
the
needless deaths
of
thousands
of
americans
as
a result
of
the gross incompetence
of
the white house
but
i
personally
cannot
accept
the slaughter
of
the easter bunny
because
of
covid-19
inaction
oh
that veiled excuse
that
we will be
opened
by
easter
was no more
than
a smoke screen
while
the president
family
and
friends
stuffed
their wallets
with
our tax dollars
whatever
my problem
is
the assassination
of
my
candy man
the easter bunny
and
his family
they
are
history
and
for me
that’s
the last straw
we
must
rise up
and
end
this pandemic
of
incompetence

 

the dog ate my homework…

folks at the white house
must be writing a book
called never our fault
it’s never incompetence
but always the other guy

 

oh the humanity…

her day
has been
totally ruined
by
death
plans
to reduce
her stress level
from
being confined
on her estate
by
having
her nails done
roots dyed
and
a proper styling
for
her position
endeavors
facilitated
by
when
the state
approved
the opening
of
salons
she had
also
taken strigent precautions
of her own
she
had her driver
disinfect the limousine
from
bumper to bumper
with
some rather expensive
solution
provided
free of charge
by
the government
for
her significant contributions
to
the election campaign
further
her personal maid
entered
the premises first
as
you might say
as
a mine canary
all
was well
however
as she left
the premises
a homeless man
came to her
from
nowhere
and
died at her feet
coughing
she was rushed
to
her personal physician
who
assured her
that

all was well
and
that an injection
of
lysol
was not needed
however
she was
severely later
for
dinner
