blameless and mentally blank…

there will be no words
to console you for your dead
for that would suggest
that government has failed us
you’ll just hear bring out your dead

 

dead men in clean underwear…

there is
little
disagreement
about
their decaying nature
and
most folks
consider
the stench
from
their
rotting souls
particularly unpleasant
however
when
pious platitude persons
carefully evaluate
how much
money
they’ve
made
from these
walking
political corpses
an
offensive defense
is
offered
in behalf
of
the
not so dearly
departed
they wear
clean
underwear

 

living on white island…

last few years
have been difficult
a number of minor eruptions
and
a couple of major ones
air has been toxic
and
steam seems
to
always fill the air
making it difficult
to breathe
though
denied
climate change
and
our own lack of stewardship
have
resulted in the loss
of
life
not as many critters
as
there used to be
and
human loss
has been
ever
increasing
it’s like we’re
continuously engaged
in
wars
war with other nations
war with the poor
war with the homeless
war with children
and
war with ourselves
a nation
of
immigrants
this place
called
america

 

serve up that fried chicken…

i think
we should
all
vote
on
what becomes
the
official design
for
white house dining plates
it’s been suggested
that
the plates
should reflect
the true nature
of
the administration
a factual
historical representation
of
the policies
and
procedures
of
the presidential office
i think
that’s
a bully
idea
and
i’m sure
there are lots
of
disenfranchised citizens
that
would be more
than
willing
not only to vote
but
to render
several designs

 

president punishes opponents…

animated corpse
like a scene from the last circus
revenge is taken

 

grand mal seizure…

confusion
staring spells
uncontrollable jerking movements
loss of consciousness
and
awareness
fear 
anxiety
and
deja vu erratic
movements
striking others
resulting
in
injuries
and
deaths
to
its own
children
and
citizens
a nation
out
of
control

 

as seen on city streets…

as i entered
the
post office
i saw
the
brown bag prophet
mailing
a business envelope
he
said
i’m gonna
propose
a new show
for
the black
entertainment network
i want them
to
seriously
think about
my
humble
proposal
for
a program
called
wait
wait
don’t
shoot me
