close-fitting legal briefs…

at the instant
of
death
are you provided
with
a quick review
of
your life
a visual
pretrial conference
before
entering
the angelic courtroom
so as
to
provide you
with
the appropriate
preparation
for
defending
actions
taken
or
not taken
during
what
you now
consider
an abbreviated
existence
and
as you
stand
before
heaven’s magistrate
will you be
wondering
if
you’re granted
the right
of appeal
if
some lesser angel
decides
not
in your favor
can you
appeal
to the supreme being
or
must you
request
purgatory
while
you prepare
your final defense
hell
maybe
it would have been
easier
to have done
it right
the
first tine

tale of two sets of clowns…

tomorrow
the circus
will come to town
but
there’ll be no clowns
for
many
have taken jobs
in the movies
playing
sinister characters
who crawl
from
dark spaces
with
rather
unfriendly faces
scaring
little children
who alas
wet their beds
when left
alone
without
a nightlight
others
have found
similar jobs
in
washington
scaring
the hell
out of us all
with
the same
unfortunate
biological response

flynn and comey departures…

the brown bag prophet
was drawing
a picture
of
what
he
was sure
was the new
oval office door
when
he said
now
why would
mueller
want to question
what’s his name
whatever
he would say
on
whatever day
would
be denied
or
claimed
to be
a gross misrepresentation
of
the initial lie
seems
to me
mueller
could save some time
and
tax payer dollars
by
making up the answers
himself
it would be
more far factual
than
the answers
contrived
by
the guy
tweeting
from
the oval office

cliché…

watching
patterns
on
the ceiling
candlelight dancers
flickering
like
memories
and
sweet words
heard
so
long ago
friends
forever
lovers
for
the moment
tantalizing
touches
passion
has a way
of
arbitrating
with
reason
youth
has little
to do with it
but
provides
a time-tested
excuse
readily accepted
in
most circles
of
society
except for
a few
hardline
religious zealots
who
rarely
approve
of
anything
but they
end up
like
the melted wax
upon
my floor
cold
solidified
paraffin postures
of
humanity
never
really enjoying
the
flames

of
your youth
be returned to you
under
any
circumstances
further

more care
the initial documents

your parents
you would have noted
in
bold print
buyer beware
of
life’s offerings

love jihad…

i
found myself
confronting
the brown bag prophet
when
i noticed
he had a sign
reading
purity matters watch who you marry
i said
how could you promote
such a racist theme
he said
this has nothing
to do
with race
or
religion
well perhaps
religion
since politics
is really
the new religion
in our nation
surpassing all morals
purported by the standard set
of
spiritual themes
you see
the prophet
said
there’s a new jihad
a
love jihad
where innocent democrats
are marrying
republican jihadists
trained
at secret locations
like
mar-a-largo
they’re taught
to use their sexuality
to
convert these love-sick puppies
into becoming
well
members of this new political sect
where
all human values
and
interests
are replaced
by
a blind obedience
to
the political party head
