before their prayers…

 

on a day
with
gathering clouds
those who wore
the mantle of power
chiefs and priests
in
full regalia
climbed
the temple stairs
to speak
to the gods
seeking guidance
for
in their lust
for
life’s treasures
this
chamber of deputies
had lost
the vision
the gods
had bestowed
upon them
when
they reached
the summit
and
stared down
upon the people
that they
had sworn
to serve
as well as
their
future generations
they saw
the underworld
consume
all
who awaited them

 

congressional reaction to president’s behavior…

 

as all teachers know
when a child throws a tantrum
you just wait them out
cuz if you cave in to them
they’re on the floor wanting more

 

natural attraction…

natural attraction

every now
and then
aunt bea
get the giggles
you know
the kind
folks get in church
when a pastor
inadvertently says something
that can be
and
is
taken completely
the wrong way
spreading
muffled giggles
throughout the congregation
such was the case
as aunt bea
read about
the stink bugs
in the halls
of congress
during
the government shutdown
seems like the little pests
were attracted
to the place
since
no one was doing
anything
about them
or
anything else
aunt bea
said
i wonder if
they
truly understand
the gravity
of this event
