organ grinders and other monkey business…

the brown bag prophet
was sitting
at
a park bench
circling
phrases
and
sentences
with
a red pen
from
what was reported
to be
a
reliable
source
publication
so
i presumed
he was searching
for
crossword puzzle answers
so
i inquired
if i could help
fill-in
an answer
he replied
no
not unless you’ve got connections
with
the kgb
that
i should know about
you see
he said
i’m looking
for
examples of
disinformation
spread
by
russia
throughout
the world
like
that stunt
they pulled
in sweden
to
make
trump
look good
hmmm
with
a little help
from
their army
of
hackers
and
false flag information warriors
they could
quite
easily
convenience
folks
around here
that
i’m
really
a potential
howard hughes-like
benefactor
i’d be eating
free everywhere
and
not off
the public dole
like
the white house

 

strings attached…

 

had the strings
been
on
the outside
the
puppet
would have seemed
less
life
like
and
not so
presidential
but
the strings
were
internal connections
they
were
purse strings
firmly tied
to
debt
to
foreign investors
investors
with
russian accents
and
affordable
busty women
to
satisfy
the male
ego
with no
complications
of
anything
like
love
the perfect business deal
that’s
all
an off the shelf
trophy
to
enhance
entry
into
parties
or
events of state
so
other male egos
could
languish
in
desire
but
as
is
often said
cold steel trophies
are
hard to warm
and
make for
poor
bed mates
but
that aside
the question is
who’s
the puppet master

 

return to home drone #45…

phantom
remote controller
pressed firmly
into
hand’s palms
throttle sticks
under
pilot’s thumbs
parrot drone
changes direction
easily
moving
right
or
left
contingent
upon
prevailing winds
although
protocol states
daylight-only operations
these
line-of-sight rules
are
usurped
by
internet messages
sent out
during
nightly flights
of
fantasy
but
when out of range
and
in
the headless mode
vladimir
the pilot
sends
signals
to
the unmanned government
prompting
a new sequence
where
the parrot drone
utters
this is huge

sweeney todd…

presidential pies
ingredients baked daily
served with russian tea
made from the unsuspecting
for all those willing to pay

spiritual edification trump’s thinking…

staring at line
inside starbucks
the brown bag prophet
said
the russian government
could not have
expected more
from
the president
they elected
for the united states
their agent’s
america first
homily
has divorced our nation
from
the world community
affording
china
and
russia
with
numerous opportunities
to replace us
as
a world leader
and
as
a trusted partner
on global concerns
seems
we have a man
attempting to run
one of the world’s
largest budgets
that has filed
for chapter 11 bankruptcy
six times
and
has cheated
common man contractors
out of their
due wages
i not saying
this constitutes
a vote of
no confidence
but
i suspect
there’s going to be
long lines
at
our nation’s
soup kitchens
