My Dear Fellow Citizen

Your rebellion has been impressive. We have fought
each other to a stalemate.

Your forces recently killed an entire grammar school
class visiting the national museum.

I understand the symbolic gesture involved. And even
against the national outrage, I offer complete amnesty
for this act and all others, if you come to the negotiating
table.

I await your answer. We must cooperate for the good
of the nation.

Casino Capitalism

That’s knocking casinos!
Regulated and relatively
straight nowadays.

O there were Mafioso
skims and scams, but

nothing like those of
Banks and Wall Street

slicing and dicing their
way into our real hearts.

Short Note To Libertarians

Believe in the Market, hey?
Belay regulation, a form,
yet another, of government
tyranny? Well, didn't work.

Ah hah! you exclaim, that's
only because information
wasn't free and open. Thus,

would work if...! Uh huh?
If the most scabrous pirates

ever to despoil
only told us foils

what they were up to! "We're bund-
ling subprime mortgages! Just
a marvelous way of fucking
just about everybody!"

Hey, Libertarians, wake
up and smell the hemlock!

Progress



I work in an old-fashioned factory, flapping belts overhead,
smell of hot oil, wooden floors, grimy windows. We love it.
You can visualize our types.

The corporation builds a new factory next door. Some parts
finished, training goes on for a lot of scrawny little brown fellows
from India. Nobody has ever seen them enter or exit the building.
They’re cooking in there: we can smell it.

My janitor friend has seen plans for a third building.
No windows, all robots.

Boweling For Clarity

Philosophy survey book in bathroom.
I scan at random. Unsystematic me,

with these sages framing
intellectual edifice. So, true

crystalline amid core stinks...THAT
reeks of sarcasm, for they ARE at-
tempting to plunge into bottomless

messes: Who am I? Why
is everyone a cramp in the ass?

But it’s, all of it, Cloudville, Baby! Oh,
know I should read the thing entire.

Preferably backwards.

Rocco and the International Doctor


ROCCO
All the big shots come down to South Philly. And I’ll tell you why: it’s real!

ID
That and the food. It reminds me of some neighborhoods in Paris.

ROCCO
Slumming, from the High University College of Med. Why you’re against Socialized Medicine.

ID
Wrong end of sick, my Italian friend. I did a residency in France. It’s not
a perfect bijou, a jewel–what is?–but it works.

ROCCO
Then why won’t we have it here?

ID
Because oligarchies won’t give over power without long, bruising, continuous fights.
And I’m not talking about the AMA. We’re making progress there,

The Philosophy

-Obama in Ft Myers doing a q and a, mostly about the stimulus.

-Don’t remember the last guy doing many of those.

-No, he reflected the Republican philosophy of Go Fuck Yourself!

-Why do they embrace that?

-Cheaper, and depends on individual initiative.

Young Persons

-I had a one night stand with a bum. So I guess that makes me
a bum. Well why don’t you say something? Jesus Christ!

-What’s the difference what I say?

-Look! Maybe we should get married. Oh Jesus, tell me what a fool I am even to suggest...

-Only sensible thing I ever heard you say.

-Timing. I‘ve been out of control all the time I’ve known you.
Ah what the fuck!

-We gotta do it small. Your mother will try to make a fuckin
fandango outa it for sure!

-Boy! How can you be the joker and then turn deadly
serious?

-Your mother has that effect.

-Welcome to the family.

-Mine crazier.

-Marriage made in heaven, then. But, are you one who saves
fallen women, and then tortures them daily with whack-ass
jealously?

-We’re all fallen. That’s the whole fuckin picture.

-Maybe...I can get a better bargain.

-I don’t think either of us can.

-This is it? Not like the fuckin movies, no?

-It’s a post-modern flick.

-Two crumb-buns?

-Too much drama. Let’s just say we know each other

Back from the beach

The Democrat Answers



Yeah it’s disconcerting to have Dem thieves arise.

Do I think what?

No, we can’t even approach that Gold Standard. Ever.

And if they ever do get back in, they’ll never surpass their
past years for venality.

Giving Nothing Away

-Lemme get this straight. The Republicans gave away money
we don't have to their rich buddies?

-Of course, much of it overlapping the White Man's Burden Bonanza
in Iraq.

-And now the Dems are still supporting that venerable fund,
but say they're gonna knock it off.

-Slowly. No jolts.

-And now, with the Dem stimulus, they're also giving away money
we don't have to...

-Spreading it around. Country club hafta do with bit less.

-How tragic! But somebody eventually gets the bill for all this
borrowing, no? Monster debt cubed and cubed and...

-Grandkids, but they'll pass it off to theirs.

-Can't sustain. We'll be ruined, bankrupt.

-Always are anyway.

-It's a farce!

-Yeah but you say it the wrong way for the times.
It's a farce, Baby!
