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

 

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

 

defund the white house…

let’s cut to the chase
what’s the most destructive force
right now in the states
police are part of the problem
but the president’s the cause
unable to lead
he ponders not how to serve
but how to be served
so let’s cut all his purses strings
before we’re all bankrupt
let’s cut his budget
creating less government
like he says he likes
and let’s see what he does then
when there’s no money to spend

 

dumb as he looks…

folks are
always
saying
don’t judge a book
by
its cover
but
child
that man’s
moronic
words and deeds
are
clearly reflected
in
his face
those eyes
surely shielded from
a tanning lamp
looks like
that of
some devilish
thief
raccoon
foraging for
the
last bit
of garbage
in
the bin
and that skin
and hair
lord
looks like
some kind
of
new orange disease
that
should be
treated
aspa
god forbid
you think
i’m
telling stories
out of school
i’m
merely
repeating
what’s
heard on the street

 

is you stupid or what…

 

child
didn’t your
mom
or
dad
tell you
’bout
politicians
their words

are
like those
of
a used car salesmen
everything’s fine
until
you
drive that hunk
of
painted rusty metal
off

the lot
then
all bets are off
and
the promised warranty
now seems to be written
with
invisible ink

 

a somewhat less than a modest proposal…

quite a simple plan
sacrifice all old people
to balance budget
let them all get the virus
thus reducing tax burdens
since that would decrease
the earned retirement payouts
though they’ve sacrificed
the economy’s foremost
so your grandparents are toast
however government
can channel funds to the rich
making them richer
and social security
will be a thing of the past
as for young workers
they’ll continue servitude
just making ends meet
crushed grains of humanity
beneath the grindstone of greed
bright side there’s no need
to fatten up poor children
to feed the wealthy
since food will be plentiful
without those old folks around

 

you’d better show the proper respect or else…

the brown bag prophet
who’s been
shelved in place
at
a local hotel
in light
of
covid-19
posted
the following note
on
a bulletin board
according to the president
we
must
be thankful
for
receiving a small portion
of
our tax dollars back
especially
given the cost
of
his
green fees
security detail
needed
to
protect him
during
all those rounds
of golf
at
his
resort complex
oh
and don’t
forget
the cart fees
so
we’re
commanded
to feel
blessed
that
we get
anything back

 

the book of dying 1:10…

so death decided to send angels
death’s fallen angels the soulless men
whose words enamored but were empty
blinding the eyes to living corpses
