even with all the president’s men…

now
i’m more
than
certain
that
shivery slinkum
is
waiting outside
the president’s door
for
it’s my understanding
that
children
and
childish people
who misbehave
having
their sticky fingers
all over
the cookie jar
have something
to
fear from him
there are stories
of
slinkum
chopping children up
for
firewood
so
you can just imagine
what he’ll do
to
a childish adult
whose fingers
are
as sticky as hell
and
dirty
as well

 

senators…just in case you haven’t heard america…

an old fashioned
hardware store
the kind of place
where
you can find
just
about
anything
not like
the big box stores
that carry
only those things
with
a large profit margin
then
you have to go online
to find
replacement parts
since
there’s no profit
in
customer service
no
the general store
hardware place
is where
you can find stuff
you really need
to fix
that
old
whatchamacallit
and
even
people
who’ll answer
your questions
about
that
whatchamacallit
not
a place
typically known
as
liberal
or
subversive
so imagine
my surprise
when
an elderly clerk
repeatedly
tells her customers
he should be impeached
they won’t do it
but
he should be impeached
i pay
and
agree
i should’ve left
a tip

 

attempted obstruction of justice…

swearing under oath
that what was seen was a lie
he dropped the mirror
