honey you just lost my vote…

tho
i understand
the
economic issue
i do
take issue
with
the proposed
reopening
of
the economy
where
i
am expendable
due
to
my age
you see
i’ve
earned
this
damn
retirement
and
do not feel
that
returning
retirement funds
to
washington
as
a result
of
the government’s
kill your grandparents initiative
will
do anything more
than
pay
for
a round
of
presidential golf
so
i’m voting
against
such
proposals
and
those
who support
them

 

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

 

razor blades in candy…

from
my
second floor apartment
i
could see
the brown bag prophet
wearing
a surgical mask
and
holding up
a series
of
signs
like
cue cards
the signs read
sweet exterior
economic incentives
inside the bill are dangers
hidden agendas
blank checks for cutting ada
hurting children and placing others at risk
social funding cuts and more
now really
is it an incentive or exploitation
the prophet
then turned
and
faced
another building
