desantis and others

so
remember when
politicos
said
there’s no climate change 
and
the waters weren’t gonna rise
along
the coast
well
try telling that
to
the critters
outside
your door

 

 

​taken under advisement…

i’ve listened
quite carefully
and
without interest
to
your unfiltered
diatribes
on
numerous
topics
such discussions
illustrate
and
support
the need
for
selective breeding
you
being
the
strongest
rationale
for
it

evildoers in our midst…

evildoers in our midst

yes
it’s official
evildoers
are in our midst
the country harbors
a nest
of
communists
and
communist sympathizers
oops
wait
strike out that
mccarthy era
phrase
communist
and
replace it with
evildoers
i digress
what this country needs
is
broader government surveillance
of
americans
if you have
any
questions
regarding this matter
just look
at how well
we’ve protected
personal
civil liberties
throughout
our history
oh
and please
ignore
all that stuff
on
internment of japanese americans
and
southern lynchings

just can’t see the light of day…

just can't see the light of day

that
mockingbird’s
been singing
all night long
first
i thought
it was cuz’
the moon’s so bright
but
even when
there ain’t
no light
he keeps singing
the same
damn refrains
you’d think
he’d learn
all the other birds
are in bed
but
that said
i can’t
criticize
just look
how we vote
each time
we get a chance

a perfect gift…

a perfect gift

as you
can readily see
this clear glass
figurines
store
the coin
of the realm
given
their political composition
we may add
to the surface
whatever
national colors
you like
whatever
appeals
to your taste
of defined reality
as you
may have noticed
the exterior
is
the only thing
that ever
changes
covering
a perfect
state
of greed

response time…

response time

aunt bea
turned off
the national press conference
and said
it sure seems strange
that every politician
says
the same old thing
when they get caught
ignoring a law
or
a duty of office
and although
the words
differ from time to time
and
sometimes are
quite flowery
they can always
be boiled down
to
i was just about to do that

i’ve heard that song before…

i've heard that song before

the brown bag prophet
was sitting on a bench
near the center
of downtown
casually
stroking his mustache
and
humming an old tune
that talks about
a chrome plated dream
he said
that song
really captures
the essence
of american politics
hell
maybe even
world politics
first they tell us
to conserve energy
then they say
well wait
we have a surplus
and
well
we could make
some real
retirement money
from this scheme
so don’t worry
things are just fine
and by the way
we’ll be sending
the surplus
gas and oil
to our once-upon-a-time enemies
for profit of course
things are going to be
just wonderful
for us
hell it’s all
just another
chrome plated lie

i’m just saying…

i'm just daying

the brown bag prophet
said
let’s get down and dirty
on
your
representatives
to government
you
ain’t got none
well unless
you’re in
the select minority
of those parasite few
who feed off the labors
of the middle class
the rest
of you suckers
just pay the rent
so to speak
for the whore
you fell in love with
and sent to govern
with my apologies
for the comparison
to the men and women
of the oldest profession
who at least
do
what
they get paid for
unlike
the mush-mouth
one cell cerebral protozoa
that seem to reproduce
and
multiply themselves
like bacteria
with every
corporate dollar
they get
too bad
hungry children
don’t get
to vote
