not quite biblical…

i was
complaining
to
aunt bea
about
how
the new president
seems
to be more concerned
about
hearing
his
name
in the press
than
doing
anything
of merit
that
would cause one
to
actually
mention
his name
aunt bea
said
perhaps
we can take
a lesson
from
history
and
start referring
to
him
as
he with the unmentionable name
maybe
that will
get
the focus
on
national issues
instead
of
ego

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
