not quite biblical…

i was
complaining
to
aunt bea
about
how
the new president
seems
to be more concerned
about
hearing
his
name
in the press
than
doing
anything
of merit
that
would cause one
to
actually
mention
his name
aunt bea
said
perhaps
we can take
a lesson
from
history
and
start referring
to
him
as
he with the unmentionable name
maybe
that will
get
the focus
on
national issues
instead
of
ego

today for you almost free…

these trinkets
offered
along the street of life
by politicians
are yours
for
the exceptionally
low price
of
your soul
just
give up your
concern for others
and
have a new highway
or
even better yet
more overpaid
government jobs
for
friends
and
for
yourself
just
trade-in
that old belief
in humanitarianism
and get
a new
and improved
egocentric life
to hell
with healthcare
for the poor
when greed is standing
at your door
as well
as voters’
votes
let’s cut your taxes
and weave
an outdoor mud room rug
from the souls crushed
by your selfishness
and
today
it’s
almost
free
