2023 house of representatives’ agenda…

2023 house agenda

now
be advised
that
it takes a lot
of
time
to do nothing
well
nothing but
obstruct others
from
doing
what’s right
lord knows
being so divisive
creating
national hostility
between
lifelong friends
and
neighbors
is going to be
quite time consuming
that’s why
i’ll
never have time
to
do my job
oh
i know there
are
a few folks
out there
hoping that my
all-consuming fund raising
and
hell-raising behaviors
should be stopped
and
i should turn
my attention
to
national and international
issues
that directly
affect the lives
of
my constituents
and
i would
seriously
consider
those alternative positive actions
but
i just won’t
have
time

 

 

by any other name…

by any other name

though
they
walk the halls
of
congress
as
representatives
of
the people
we typically
find them
enaging
agreeing
or
offering to engage
in
dubious
conduct
and
behavior
in
return
for
a fee
if they walked
the streets
they’d be
called
something else

no reconciliation…

no reconciliation

it’s only the fool
who feeds a venomous  snake
from his open palm
hoping that the snake will see
harmony is all he seeks

vagabonds…

vagabonds

you’ll find
nothing beyond
the
shadows
of
their words
there’s no truth
to be
heard
only
repeated
lies
formed
into
political sacraments
placed
upon
the tongue
as an offering
to
ignorance
no
substance
for
the body
but
enough
empty promises
to
fill
the
void
of
mindless pilgrims
pilgrims
seeking
what has
never existed
on
this planet
yet they
aimlessly wander
through
vacant dreams
of
personal glory
and
take
guided tours
of
the ruins
of
true thought

dropouts…

dropouts...

said to have
graduated
eighth grade
but still
just a dropout
oh
even when they
graduated high school
they were
mere dropouts
and
as for their
supposed
college degree
it too
left them
as
just dropouts
political figures
who’ve
dropped out
of
reality

 

 

revealed…

revealed

for centuries
it
moved throughout
the world’s
gardens
a mythical creature
whose
movements
and
bright colored skin
inspired
dreams
of
freedom
and
strength
but
the underbelly
revealed
it
was propelled
by
hate
and 
greed
and
it was often
found
to be
quite willing
to
consume
its own
offsprings

it’s all negotiable..

it's all negotiable

as
has been
our
nation’s
tradition
human rights
and
freedom
are
on the table
as
items
of
property
to be
the centerpiece
of
our flexible
moral
negotiable instrument
said
instrument
will
strictly
adhere to
the uniform commercial code
stringent efforts
will be made
to obscure
reality
from
the public
through
the use
of
previously
successful
political jargon
or
fear jabberwocky
about
one
ethnic group
or
another
these methods
have been
a full blown
bullet-proof
strategy
resonating
with
voter self-interest
please note
that
this
instrument
is
transferable
to
any entity
residing
in
or
having
control
of
needed resources
listed
in
the initial contract

comfort woman…

comfort woman

we
do not
speak
of
such
things
how
human souls
become
the distorted
entertainment
of
others
enslaved
and
forced
to
appease
another’s
lust
but
this is
our
world
and
freedom’s body
has
been
offered
on
the market
