guising…

running door to door
like a swarm of angry bees
ignoring danger
children dash to collect treats
like a self-centered nation

should be required reading….

those truths
we
held
self-evident
now require
some additional
evidence
equality
defined by
white-robed thugs
or
the constitution
ah yes
the constitution
unalienable rights
endowed
by
their creator
or
the state-approved creator
of
rights
noninclusive listing
of
rights
life
as a serf
or
as a freeman
oh and
then there’s
liberty
with
or
without
police brutality
and
jefferson
must have been
high
on something
to propose
the pursuit of happiness
in a nation
defined
by
corporate
and
political
greed
at the cost
of those
in the most
need
so
my dear
government friends
please
read
paragraph one
carefully
this time
skip
the cliff notes

 

political bedfellows…

political-bedfellows

our bed is empty when you are there
death’s black coldness grasp even our souls as you approach

marketing their songs…

marketing-their-songs

like
keystone cops
the
new
administration’s
advisors
and
cabinet
bungle
through
each day
destroying
the lives
of
others
but
never
a business partner
that
would
be
a sacrilegious offence
that
children
and
mothers die
is
the political cost
of
doing business
lord knows
such
vermin
cannot contribute
funds
to their personal
executive
bank accounts
so
with
a clear criminal conscious
they
encourage
executive orders
to be
signed
by
a well
trained
russian monkey
whose
facial expressions
clearly change
as
the monkey
dances
to
the
organ grinders’
tune
of greed
