scotus….

corpse still in its bed
when looters entered chambers
seeking what’s precious
greed’s stench was upon their hands
as they pried off freedom’s ring

 

all the president’s junkyard dogs …

they appear lifelike
but have no humanity
they are just castings
hollow men who resonate
whatever you want to hear

 

mr barr…

only one person’s
shown criminal sedition
he’s in the white house
so why not do your duty
and lock up the real traitor

 

we the people…

there’s no
i
in
freedom
no single
soul
that
brings
redemption
to
a nation
it is
and
has always been
we
however
subjection
does have
an
i

 

televised crimes against humanity…

steel clad boots
on
city streets
black batons
strike
the faces
of
freedom
faces
shrouded
in
clouds of teargas
and
flash grenades
young warriors
against
trump’s schutzstaffel
mercenaries
masquerading
as
law-abiding agents
of
justice
but
merely
soldiers of fortune
contracted
to
carry out
a fascist
oppression
of
the rights
of
american citizens
all
this
to appease
one
man’s lust
for
power
and
the need
to play
the game
and
to win
the game
at
any cost

 

an honest mistake…

presidential press drone
explains
the fat guy
thought
portland
was
in afghanistan
his mercenaries
were
well trained
for
murder
but not
for
reasonable reactions
to
unarmed citizens
citizens
doing what
our
forefathers
did
when
they were faced
with
the tyranny
of
an imperial regime

 

poll tax…

the grand old party
has found the perfect poll tax
covid-19 threat
if folks can’t mail in their vote
party wins when rights denied

 

minority report…

the brown bag prophet
stopped me
and
asked
do you think
the clan’s
president
has
a visual perceptual problem
to
go along with
his psychological ones
i hesitated
but
replied
i’m
not certain
what you mean
well
the prophet said
do you recall
that
movie
where cops
in the future
are
able to arrest murderers
before
they commit their crimes
i replied
i do remember that movie
but
what’s that got to do with
the president’s
array
of
disorders
the prophet
said
it’s obvious
that
the guy in the white house
thought
that scenario
was
real
but
got the year wrong
instead
2002
he must have seen
2020
why else
would you murder
someone
not only
in another country
but
also
in noncompliance
with
international law
since
the action
had no reason
i had
no
reasonable reply

 

denial of climate change…

 

i’ve
begun
to wonder
if
blindness
is acquired
after living
in
the light
too
long
the question
was
perhaps
engendered by
all
the dark days
with
rain
we’ve
been having
i’ve noticed
how
even
the slightest
ray
of
sunlight
can become
overwhelming
when
one’s eyes
have
become
accustomed
to
the darkness
and
how
the sound
of
rain
like the voices
of
dying children
soon
become
all too
familiar
how
small
pained faces
become
blurred
behind
a fog
of lies
and then
invisible
in the darkness
as
if
they don’t exist
i suppose
you could
call it
a blindness
of
sorts
or
just denial
after
a
brief period
of
true
democracy

 

baby it’s cold outside…

 

keeping up her tan
at taxpayers’ expense cost
3.6 million
soup line government workers
without pay should just eat cake
