invasion of the body snatchers…

the brown bag prophet
was standing
outside
the public library
wearing
one of those
radiation-monitoring-badges
on
his lapel
of course
i knew
it was
a trap
but
i still
fell
for the bait
and
inquired
why
the prophet
said
well
every time
i watch the news
i
feel like
i’m watching
a film clip
from
the invasion of the body snatchers
russia and china
are
offering
to be
stewards of the environment
while
the guy
in the white house
spends more time
tweeting
than
thinking
the french
are offering
asylum
to our brightest scientists
at the same time
that
what’s his name
is cutting
the very budgets
that made us
a leader
in scientific endeavors
endeavors
that offer the hope
of
innovative jobs
for
americans
in the future
and
the list
of
national body swapping events
seems
to be growing
daily
and
people
seem
to be
ignoring it
the only plausible
explanation
is
an invasion
of
body snatchers
and
from
what i’ve seen
ignorance
has
the characteristics
of
radiation poisoning

 

flexible payment plans…

flexible payment plans

as i passed by
the brown bag prophet
i couldn’t help
but notice
his ipad
nor
could i
stop myself
from inquiring
how and why
he had obtained
one
look
he said
the days of panhandling
on the street
are gone
most folks
who walk to work
obviously
cannot afford
to give a dime
so one must
adjust to the times
and get online
so I’m offering an array
of giving options
with a variety of
moral rebates
you know
blessings from
fill-in-the-blank god
to
the degree of
how you’ll feel better
at the end of the day
for giving
and
with this new
paypal system
and
customized banking options
i’m doing
quite well
oh
and i’m working
on an app
for china
cuz’
that’s where
the real
money
is

acquiesce…

when do we
become our enemy
how many lives
must be taken
before we
are
them
or
is it
not
a number
but
when
we
accept
their
rules
of behavior
and
we
kill
to purify
our
nation
as
they
did

ghost dancers…

a voice
encircled by
official fears
government troops
ghost dancers
in
china
iran
cuba
mongolia
the states
prophets
are everywhere
dancing to truth’s music
disappearing
from the circle
of life
for
spreading the word
of those unheard
bound to this earth
covered with
diseased blankets
of lies
listen
to the chanting
love
chanting
peace
chanting
freedom
but
then
silence

more washington rumors….

 

oh for the love of god
i need to get packing
i heard some folks
in washington
are gonna
repeal medical coverage
to help pay the bills
and then the 13th amendment
something about needing
cheap labor
so i need to get
my things in order
but where will i go
i can’t head for reservations
cause they’re checking
lineage if there’s a casino
and if there’s no casino
the 13th has
already been repealed
i could go to france
since i’m not a gypsy
i’d be okay in israel
since i only have one
or two arab friends
but on second thought
they have army draft
and i couldn’t shoot
anyone who looked like me
you know having
eyes, mouth, nose,etc.
i’m not japanese
so i could go china
but not germany
germany’s already said
diversity’s dead
england’s out
our rules came
from there first
maybe I could
just hitch a ride
on one of those
space shuttles

adephagia’s diner…

 

just a second honey
let me clear this table for you
we just get so busy
right after church
i tell you
those last folks
ordered so much food
you’d think sherman’s army
was joining them for lunch
‘course
you can see that
by all the stuff left on this table
child
i bet they never heard
that old thing ’bout
starving children in china
course now days
it’s starving families
around the corner
well in some cases
on the corner
with
t h o s e
signs
it’s a good thing
our owner
sends these leftovers to the hog farm
otherwise
this would be
a
h o r r i b l e
waste
don’t you think so
now dear
what can i
get for
you
