is you stupid or what…

is you stupid or what...

ain’t that something
there you are
with
your golden brown skin
lying next to
a body
bleached
by
evolution
a body
that wants
to look
like you
and
you
want to act
like her
so you’re
sunbathing
on the deck
baking
in the summer sun
she’s sure
to look like
a red lobster
from this
blistering sun
and
when
you’re done
you’re
sure
to resemble
an
over baked
pie crust
so
at the end
of
the day
your goals
will have moved
further apart
since
you’ve both forgotten
how
the eyes
of
history
see you

as children…

as children

sweet lord
in
heaven
i just want
to
thank you
for
freeing women
from
being the possession
of
men
and
advancing them
to
being
wards
of
the state
states
that
have determined
that
women
can’t think
so
must be kept
pregnant
and
barefoot
in
the kitchen
rather
than
in this world
where
a
man
can’t
get
promoted
because
some woman
has
his job
oh some poor souls
might
view this
as institutionalized slavery
but
slavery’s been
outlawed
right

 

 

shoving it up…

shoving it

now
if
the promised heaven
is
important to you
you
may want
to
follow
the prescription
of
gospel doctors
those
folks
occupying
pulpits
on
fridays
saturdays
or
sundays
and
increase
your
contributions
to
their
more than worthy cause
hell
you may even
elect to
help paint
the
preacher’s manse
but
i’ll assure
even before
the
paint
begins
to
dry
you’ll start
to
wonder
perhaps
because
of
the paint fumes
why you’re spending
so
much time
doing
what could be
contracted out
if
other
parishioners
would
or
could
feel
the spirit
of
god
in their souls
you know
the ones
who claim
to
be moved
to
be disciples
as
long as
it
doesn’t cost
them
any money
just
words
it’s at that point
you consider
putting
the paintbrush down
and
stuffing it up
someplace
else

 

 

peeing on a myth…

peeing on a myth2

being
the last one
to
leave the service
a service
and
sermon
that seemed
like
the never ending story
to
even
the adults
in
the congregation
the pastor
decided
to finish off
the wine
for as
most folks know
opened wine
just doesn’t
last
until
the next
sunday sermon
so
it seemed
quite
reasonable
not
to let
good wine
go
to
waste
unfortunately
the drive
home
from the country
church
was
quite slow
due to
the bad roads
full
of potholes
and
as you all know
potholes
and
full kidneys
do not
go well together
so
the good pastor
made
the proverbial
pitstop
assuming
the secluded spot
surrounded
by trees
and
such
would provide
appropriate
cover
alas
as he was
feeling
the full blessings
of
redemption
he was
startled
by
a somewhat
angry voice
asking
why
he
was reliving
himself
on the grave
of
a great
texas governor

got a clean hanky in my pocket…

a mannequin

been feeling
poorly
these last
few
days
had a fever
and
congestion
in
my chest
but
it ain’t nothing
to
worry ’bout
cuz
my friend told me
there
ain’t no such a thing
as
germs
or
virus
said
he read it
on
the internet
so
it must be true
i was gonna
talk to him
’bout
my current condition
but
i read
in the paper
he died
yesterday
in
the hospital
but
i’m not worried
i
got a clean
hanky
in
my
burial suit
pocket

 

 

the promise of eternity…

the promise of eternity

please stay
in
your
designated line
divine blessings
on
earth
are allotted
according to
your position
in line
but
rest assured
that
you’ll
be
given
a fair share
of
life’s bounty
upon
your souls passing
into
the chimeric promised land
a sure guarantee
from those
who
oppressed you
during
your time
on
earth

texas…

left out in the cold
your senator basks in sun
while he plays you pay
i’m betting he would have been
first to flee the alamo

office of the former…

honey
everybody
who’s got fired
from
their job
during
the pandemic
is
setting up offices
to replace
the one
they got terminated from
and
it don’t take
any
creativity
to
name the new office
just
add
former
to the title
like
office of
the former
talent delivery specialist
office of
the
former
snake milker
or
chick sexer
child
i’m telling you
this could be
the tax write off
you’ve been
looking
for
and
if you set it up
as
a nonprofit
you
could keep
all
the profits

proud boys storm walmart…

in
an act
more
seditious
than
the last
another
american icon
has been
besieged
an
al qaeda-like
anarchist
moronic
mongrel mob
entered
the hallowed aisles
of
bargain basement prices
looting items
consistent
with
the american dream
carrying off
cases
of
budweiser
lays potato chips
and
condoms
politico
lindsey
in
another embarrassing
moment
for
south carolina
noted
that
no democrat complained
when
bin laden
was
killed
why the big fuss
over
this
walmart siege
or
that of
the capital
just
boys
having fun
of course
he needs
their votes
when
they get out
of
prison
