To Pundits of Right Insanity

I said you’re in the pocket
of massive wealth, gleeful-

ly praising their grinding
the face of the poor. But

my dour comment doesn’t
hold since you’ve done so

well thereby, it’s like
being in your own!

Call them baboons and
they have names for us.

A family, lost, nightfall, and how
my friends shriek “Baboons!”
chasing them into the a-

bandoned house we then
torch. You walk by now,

the blackness and the smells,
and remember the wild

dancing against the flames
as something from a film.

Network Political Commentator Explicating Time of Fear

Party A makes several nothing points.

Party B makes several nothing points.

I blend an equal number of each whilst employing profound-d-d-d-d

Thus producing a discrete. Basso-profundo. Echoing. Mess of nothing.

Democrat’s Answer

-Republicans gave us war and made us poor!

-And what did you do about it enroute?

-Republicans gave us war and made us poor!

Shhhh! Go easy.
We’re doing
really well at this.*

Generally speaking.

*NYT refers to Democrat’s “eggshell timidity.”

-Holy Shit! Oh excuse me.

-No problem. That’s merely vulgarity, manners. I can take a bit of that.

-Just that I was surprised! are Republican?

-That’s right, heh heh.

-But that leaves out half the population in this country.

-Fuck ‘em.

-Oh my God! Excuse me again, but...

-You get tired of the boat-rocking. Leave things alone and I have less to do.

-How about heaven? I mean, will all these Repub–?

-Maybe a parallel one. They’re too freakin boring to have around.

-I concur. But, anyway, the Dems really out of luck?

-Too much experimenting...and fornicating.

-How about Republican fornicating?

-No such deal. What passes for it they can keep doing in their parallel heaven.

-So it’s Hell for the Democrats?

-Don’t know yet. They complain even more than Satan. Too unsteady a brew
to put them together. I might create another Earth and let them beat upon
each other’s eardrums and read each other’s reports. Anyway, they’ll think it’s heaven not to be perpetually screwed.

Old Lou and New Lou

Old Lou sits on a one-runner rocking chair in Judy Garland Park*
and excoriates the New York Yankees, name by name.
When the boys come in for the night shift they assist him to
his car with great tenderness, wet chin glowing purple.

New Lou has recently served his sentence of watching six chick
flicks chosen by his girlfriend. Judge Patricia Morrisey
imposed this penance to teach him sensitivity after the couple
brawled at South Philadelphia’s Oregon Diner.

Well, did you learn anything from the movies?

Nah! They're all about fucking. Well, talking about it mostly.
Y'go through a lotta ass-squirming by the time they do it,
believe me. It's, like, you end up in a puddle of sweat.

Women like to really look at things, explore facets, discuss, ponder.

Who wants t'watch anybody doing that?

Looks like the judge's clever sentence was a flop.

And by the time the poor girls get to it, it's no damn wonder they're
all disappointed.

Great Expectations, or Tillie's Punctured Romance?

Whatever. I don't hafta read like you to know everything's bullshit.

Cynical! You could never work for this Bush administration.

Them? They bang you up the ass until you're grateful...
hmmm, that didn't come out right.

Not much does. Forget about it.

And my father’s completely fuckin nuts!

That’s what y’call a coda. Old Lou coda.


Or a non-sequitur.

Who cares about anything like that?

Matriarch at the Dinner Table

I don’t care if he wears Mormon underwear or Mickey Mouse!
He’s a Conservative and that means he’ll advance the fortune
of this family. Or at the least get out of the road.

Oh yes! What you all depend on and precious few are
willing to work for.

Please forgo the smirks this time, and four of you have been eating
like pigs! Only two, children.

By the way, though one must stomach the rhetoric, the “Party of the
Working Man and Woman” has seldom let us down in recent years

-You’re from the other team.

-Have been.

-How do I know that if...?

-Hey! Dodgers are leaving Dodgertown in Vero!
Baltimore O‘s moving in. Things switch everywhere.

-Do you charge by the vote?

-Nope. Just by the magic cyber formula.

-Won’t you be considered a traitor in that bunch?

-We have only traitors.

The Admiral’s Daughter Waits Down By the Water,She

wants to grab your dinghy.
Could listen in one record shop

in New Haven, but only with ear-
phones. Other hot one concerned wag

who took a ship for himself.
“How the other fellows laughed
when they saw me take that craft.”

Nautical scatology.
But really 23-skidooey & oh you kid!

Korean Motto

Sergeant drove fast through thickest fog. We didn’t care. Could’ve been a suicide pact, unconscious.

Finally a major overtakes us, hauls us out of the jeep, screaming at our craziness.

SERGEANT (after he left)
Gung fuckin Ho! He gets off on stupid war and loves it with all his idiot heart.

Almost wish the sergeant killed both of us. So...we’re alive.
It’s all the same.

By chance we had been stopped at The University of Korea, what was left of it.
Ghost ruins. An arch with lettering on top. Young Korean officer squints
up through mists.

Ask that gook what it says.

I do. “Learning Is Eternal.”

Not like a bomb up the ass it ain’t.
