new funding source for the border wall…

standing
in a line
outside
the old town
free clinic
was
the brown bag prophet
who said
i’m here
to get
my yearly
flu shot
don’t want
to
join
the 61 thousand
that
died last year
in
the states
guess
i’m luckier
than
some folks
like
those children
detained
at our
southern border
seems
us customs
and
border
protection
have decided
not
to give
influenza vaccine
to
migrant children
in
their care
that
should free up
some
bucks
for
the lump’s wall

 

funeral arrangements…

there will be no more graves
there are
far too many bodies
to
bury
and
burning
seems
unreasonable
with
our air quality
just as
shooting them
into
space
is not an option
hell
we already
have
more than enough
space junk
to
come
raining down
upon us
it
really
just leaves us
with
chemical baths
to
dissolve
the dear ones
there will of course
be
the legal battles
to
fight
with
environmentalists
who will claim
mankind
will be harmed
by
the residue
in
the water supply
and
then they will offer
the
absurd proposal
that
we
stop
war

 

a new staging…

Jean-Michel Moreau [Public domain]

in this
interminably
drawn-out production
of
lust for power
and
human greed
the part
of
doctor pangloss
is played
by
the entire
us senate
the grand inquisitor
is played
by
moscow mitch
the part
of
mynheer vanderdendur
is
a shared role
by
members
of
the presidential cabinet
the part
of
the baron
is
played
by
the president himself
and
of course
the role
of
candide
is played
by
the american public

 

organ grinders and other monkey business…

the brown bag prophet
was sitting
at
a park bench
circling
phrases
and
sentences
with
a red pen
from
what was reported
to be
a
reliable
source
publication
so
i presumed
he was searching
for
crossword puzzle answers
so
i inquired
if i could help
fill-in
an answer
he replied
no
not unless you’ve got connections
with
the kgb
that
i should know about
you see
he said
i’m looking
for
examples of
disinformation
spread
by
russia
throughout
the world
like
that stunt
they pulled
in sweden
to
make
trump
look good
hmmm
with
a little help
from
their army
of
hackers
and
false flag information warriors
they could
quite
easily
convenience
folks
around here
that
i’m
really
a potential
howard hughes-like
benefactor
i’d be eating
free everywhere
and
not off
the public dole
like
the white house

 

the pharisees among us…

like
the pharisees
we
continue
to sacrifice
the lives
of others
for
the
good
of
the nation
our willingness
to
crucify
children
and
those
less fortunate
than
ourselves
is
an inherent
right
of
the self-righteous
one
merely needs
to
wrap themselves
in
the appropriate cloak
of
ignorance
to
justify
partisan crimes
against
humanity
while
raging
antagonistically
against
those
who
dare
to
serve
dinner wine
at
the
wrong
temperature

 

ain’t gonna steal your limelight…

now
i’m not one
to
talk
or
hold grudges
but
i’m looking forward
to
pissing
on
your grave
and
it won’t matter
if
they swear
you’ve
been saved
cuz
i’ll
do so
not
in
the name of
the father
son
or
holy ghost
but
in
the name
of
those
who
were
maimed
murdered
or
crucified
in
your name
so
i’m sure
you can see
this
ain’t about me
it’s
still
all
about
you

 

joining the cause…

as i
came back
from
lunch
the brown bag prophet
was
descending
the steps
at the public library
dressed
more like
an attorney
than
his usual
casual wear
when
i inquired
about
why such formal dress
he
replied
i’m researching
how
to
file
a charge
of
crimes against humanity
against
the
current
white house’s group
of
thugs
the torture centers
that
children
are being held in
at
the border
are
more like
concentration camps
than
facilities
for
people
who are seeking
freedom
and
a better life
lights on 24 7
poor food
no sanitary facilities
to bath children
deaths from nonexistent
health services
are
reprehensible
so
i’m joining
other americans
in
asking the world court
to
take up the case
just
got to find
the right
form
