senate votes for the unqualified…

along party-lines
sheep stroll into the wolf’s trap
greed’s the only bait

another denial…

chicken little said
fox swears he wasn’t involved
with coop massacre
it’s a sure case of fake news
he said grinding the last bone

whose god…

generally
the brown bag prophet
avoids
arguments
with
religious disciples
stating
that
beliefs cannot be verified
otherwise
they’d be
facts
and
given beliefs
require
personal acceptance
arguments
over beliefs
constitute
shadow boxing
but
yesterday
the prophet
was cornered
by a zealot
promoting
byzantine abortion laws
who spewed
religious text
that demonized
a woman’s right
to have possession
of her own body
saying
his scriptures
were provided
via
divine inspiration
from
god
when finally
given an opportunity
to speak
the brown bag prophet
said
i’ve read
there are
320 million gods
in the world
does your position
represent
a majority vote
or
someone
just
on
some bad drugs

veterans day free meals and deals…

it’s that time of year
honoring those who have served
but just for a day
then back to ignoring them
and the true needs that they have

just the thought…

the brown bag prophet
was sitting
at
a park bench
staring out
at
the ocean
with
his feet
held up
from
the ground
practicing a new yoga position
i posited
he said
no
just saw some
red ants
as i
was
walking here
and
then got
that
feeling
maybe
there’s some ants
just
below my feet
getting ready
to
crawl
all over me
that
same feeling
one gets
when viewing
today’s political scene
ants crawling
all
over you
invading
that little
space of sanity
that
you still
have left
so
like
so many
in this nation
i’ve gone
into
a fetal position
reminding myself
of
the germinal values
of
this now
dying
nation
