political bedfellows…

political-bedfellows

our bed is empty when you are there
death’s black coldness grasp even our souls as you approach

a rigid aggregate structure…

seeing
that
the brown bag prophet
had
several cans
of
spray paint
in
a cloth carrying bag
i jokingly
said
so you’ve
become
a graffiti artist
now
oh no
he said
i’ve
just returned
from
the mexican border
i was painting
welcome signs
on the wall
and
planting
a few
blue vining roses
actually
he said
i do not mind
staring
at
border walls
for
they serve
no
true purpose
but to
appear
to
masculate
the feeblest
of fears
of
more concern
to me
are
the invisible walls
of
ignorance
that
fostered
their
construction

marketing their songs…

marketing-their-songs

like
keystone cops
the
new
administration’s
advisors
and
cabinet
bungle
through
each day
destroying
the lives
of
others
but
never
a business partner
that
would
be
a sacrilegious offence
that
children
and
mothers die
is
the political cost
of
doing business
lord knows
such
vermin
cannot contribute
funds
to their personal
executive
bank accounts
so
with
a clear criminal conscious
they
encourage
executive orders
to be
signed
by
a well
trained
russian monkey
whose
facial expressions
clearly change
as
the monkey
dances
to
the
organ grinders’
tune
of greed

accepting personal responsibility…

in recent
history
hitler
proposed
his country’s
woes
were due
to the
jews
today
trump
proposes
that
all american’s
problems
are due
to
muslims
shall we
begin
to dig
the mass graves
now
or
later

immediate job openings…

now that
we’ll
have some walls
and
policies
sending
all those
high-tech jobs
to
places
with
rolling hills
and
blue-green seas
like
ireland
you may wish
to consider
a position
in agriculture
enjoy endless hours
in the hot california sun
or
in the wheat
and
corn fields
of
the great plains
areas
celebrated in songs
songs that
have made our nation great
yes
this is your chance
to make america
great again
by becoming
a field worker
savor family time
as you
pick crops together
these wonderful jobs
afford
an excellent opportunity
for you to home school
your children
as they learn
pragmatic mathematics
for example
what is the average hourly income
for a crop worker who
earns
an annual income of $10,000
or for
a family of four
who earn $17,500
how
many children
get an opportunity to learn math
while in the open confines
of a sea of commercial crops
these
wonderful benefits
are also accompanied
since you’re a red-blooded american
with access to social services
as
you’ll
be below
the federal poverty level

as we join the third world…

as-we-join-the-third-world

as
i headed home
from work
the brown bag prophet
was sitting
under
a bus stop awning
during
a brief
rain shower
he stopped me
to show
a card
he’d received
he
said
now
this
is
a first
i just
got
a sympathy card
from
a street urchin
in
bangladesh
seems
he
heard
about
our
new president
