final election results…

fangs dripping with blood
victims prostrate at his feet
still this nation bleeds
state rights are to be ignored
hoping for dictatorship

 

a main street carnival…

a-main-street-carnival

words
tossed
at flowblue dreams
shatter the hopes
of
tiny tims
everywhere
toss
them
a tin whistle
so
they can play
a tune
for their dinner
but
never
offer them
a tin drum
we
all
recall oscar
but
perhaps
such drumming
would lead
to screams
for justice
and
that glass ceiling
of
ignorance
that has encased
our societies
would be
shattered
and
the masses
would be forced
to
grow up
leaving only
freedom
as
their
mistress

reruns…

reruns

gave
a call
to aunt bea
asked
if she’d been watching
the election returns
she said
no
i’ve been watching
hogan’s heroes reruns
preparing
for
when the congress
returns
and
those political sages
suddenly are struck
with the shultz syndrome
saying to us
on every issue
of public concern
i know nothing
nothing
nothing
