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

rooseveltian revenge

now
i’m not one
to
gossip
and
spread
unfounded rumors
but
just yesterday
while
waiting
for
church to start
i happened
to
overhear
that
one of our
local politicians
had
suffered an
untimely
death
seems
he visited
the wilderness area
he was
so opposed to
and
suffered a
debilitating
injury
honey
that just means
he couldn’t walk
anyway
he called 911
and
they sent out
a couple of paramedics
his exwife
was one of them
well
when they got there
they started in with their
professional questions
name and such
and when
they got to his age
he said
sixty-five
honey
he’s 80
if
he’s a day
well
his dear exwife
said
since this is
federal land
and
protected by
the antiquities act
all
they could do
was to take
his photo
so they did
and
left him there
lord
didn’t it
get cold last night

the back of the bus…

the back of the bus

welcome
have a seat
at
the rear
of
the bus
we’ve
designed it
so
it looks
just
like
the front
only
looking to
where
we’ve been
it even comes
with
its own
humanoid driver
fashioned
to look
like
lincoln
for we know
how much
your
people
admire him
even though
his motives
for
your emmancipation
were
less
egalitarian
than
you’ve
fantasized
however
that has
served us well
you
continue
to
blindly vote
for
our candidates
out of
allegiance to the past
and
we’d like for you
to
continue
so we
place
center stage
one or two
of
yours
on
every
campaign camera angle
remember
even if we limit
your voting rights
we
want you to stay
right

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

in a moment of weakness…

in a moment of weakness

to thou
who cut the hole
in my paper cup
just as things
were looking up
sending me
tumbling down
with a thud
to
the ground
with a most
unpleasant sound
words from my lips
that
should not be heard
by man or beast
but nonetheless
they were uttered
and then
i saw
an old priest shudder
and
even a butterfly flutter
with wings changing
from
white
to
pink
oh that i could
recall
those words
but reverse blessings
do have their place
especially when they’re
in your face

initiate plan b…

said smirking

child
i am so upset
all
my retirement plans
have been
turned
upside down
i had
just
located
the perfect flat
in
tokyo
but
now
the whole
thing’s
questionable
no
it’s not
the economy
i
just saw
plan 75
and
now
all i can
think
is
me
in
wasabi
flavored
soylent green

 

 

 

righteousness and law…

righteousness and law...

more promises
that
perpetrators
will be
brought
to
justice
justice
that spiritual state
of
everlasting communion
with
truth
a parallel realm
where
everything
operates according
to
an ordained court’s will
but
will is
an
intangible force
rarely felt
and
incapable
of
moving tangible
objects
so
perpetrators
worldwide
not quite
shaking
in their boots
pause
for
a moment
or
less
while
dining out
before
committing
more crimes
to be
brought
to
justice
