invasion of the body snatchers…

the brown bag prophet
was standing
outside
the public library
wearing
one of those
radiation-monitoring-badges
on
his lapel
of course
i knew
it was
a trap
but
i still
fell
for the bait
and
inquired
why
the prophet
said
well
every time
i watch the news
i
feel like
i’m watching
a film clip
from
the invasion of the body snatchers
russia and china
are
offering
to be
stewards of the environment
while
the guy
in the white house
spends more time
tweeting
than
thinking
the french
are offering
asylum
to our brightest scientists
at the same time
that
what’s his name
is cutting
the very budgets
that made us
a leader
in scientific endeavors
endeavors
that offer the hope
of
innovative jobs
for
americans
in the future
and
the list
of
national body swapping events
seems
to be growing
daily
and
people
seem
to be
ignoring it
the only plausible
explanation
is
an invasion
of
body snatchers
and
from
what i’ve seen
ignorance
has
the characteristics
of
radiation poisoning

 

don’t cry for me…

aunt bea
looking
at the wsj
saw
a picture
of putin
tears flowing
she
suddenly
gasped
and
said
things in russia
are worse
than i thought
the stench
of politics
has even
got
him
crying

acquiesce…

when do we
become our enemy
how many lives
must be taken
before we
are
them
or
is it
not
a number
but
when
we
accept
their
rules
of behavior
and
we
kill
to purify
our
nation
as
they
did
