RIP Benny Hill, Parody Master

My cable picks up BBC
Palladia Channel fea-

turing guys in wandering
stages through multi-

colored lasers as amoebas
in audience percolate.

Singers lack Sinatra's diction,
thus words form mishmash.

At this point, can’t keep Benny
from striding in with crackers

expression, ragged sleeveless
sweatshirt. Really miss him
in interview format, though

don’t know that reality doesn’t trump.
Star reclines, archetype of insouciance.

Answers laconically to light-
en the burden of genius
he so tragically hefts.

Strong extract rights
from weak & naked

grab soon equated
to Justice, Integrity.

Founding papers
quoted, igniting

Patriotic Fervor.
Weak fight back &
branded traitors.

Bigtime Liberal, Smalltime Bleeding Heart

Mailbox deluged &
Amnesty International

even phoned. So my plan
is to ignore them all
despite hauntings.

After giving once,
I pass the ball.

Thought I’d stick every-
thing into Salvation

Army kettles because
of anonymity. But, hey,

they also got me from
sucker list & have mailed!

Oh well, always little kids
& their canisters for
Little League.

Banking Q & A

-Must I lose my home so that bankers can command obscene salaries and bonuses?

-Not necessarily.

-Once inside the hall there’ll be people to help them to their seats, etc.

-Well, tell them to speak roughly, so they won’t start tearing off their clothes.

-We’ll make their pockets so heavy they can’t get anything off!

-Hilarious! I heard it so often as a figure of speech, but there are really blind whores representing the GOP.


-Is that corporate or religious?

-Competition is the lifeblood of The American System!

-Nice speech, but how do we rig it in this particular case?

First question to the panel comes from our own Horace Broadblent.

Those of you up there who know me
know I’m the last person in the world to...but...

in Literature, others in the Arts, but as important
should be, of course, The Self-Referential Cycle
in Horseshit .)

Some plane lakes of snags
with glittering spirit.

Others hove

How To Survive in Washington

First, apply to Think Tanks. If
one despises your advocacy, then

submit the few temperate
passages you've written. You

may even be invited on a panel–-to be
sandbagged by wits of bent dimension.

If in the audience with other
intellectuals, ask questions
with extensive prefaces which

prove you're smarter than experts
on the dais. All the exercises, any-
way, intending to straighten out

the Administration with rigors
of Right or Left glimpsed
through rhetorical fog.

There's always lunch, subsidized
by rail-headed billionaire hogs.

A Pick Being Just Enough

Trolling within the huge open case
in my Publix for beer. At 6s &
7s I, exploring six-pack options.

But finally encounter Full Sail
Pale Ale, from brewery
in Oregon owned by workers.

Before, Righties, unbolting your
remarkable engine of satire,
we know we’re silly at times

& make inconsequential choices
tilting at your formidable windmills

of shit.

Republicans truly burn
with desire

of drilling offshore!
Corporate Whores.

Safe! they insist
and technological
to beat the brand.

Oily presentations.
But I resort to metaphor.

When the real thing arrives in
fallen coils of blackened birds
and tons of fish dead in muck,

they'll claim bad luck,
who could’ve foreseen such?

Commerce and Language

I Guess Money will
be satisfied when

Mining de-mountaintops
West Virginia completely.
Disparagement, join-

“Flatbillies” then.

A Shop Exists

in its own building
to repair things.
Flapping belts

and smell of oil
in half-darkness.

Wizened proprietor gives
you numbered stub circled

with the date promised.
All in order, and anytime
you’re there, the sights

and smells reassure. One
day the building missing!

Coils of weeds surround
imprint. Merchants near-

by change the subject.
A policeman merely
shrugs. I think of tossing

the broken item into a trash
barrel but he has seen it.

Tap of 2 Cities

Had a Stella Artois (arrr-twaaa)
in Claremont, CA. Perhaps the pre-
eminent location for this arch brew.

In New Orleans (nawlins) you’d skip
the Artois and settle for Stella.

For urgency and literature. (Stelll-

A wretch holds a sign
at the Bradford (PA)

courthouse. She stole
a child's gift card it
tells us. No

record exists there
of persons of wealth
expiating their gouges

similarly. They vote straight
Republican and thereby wave
the children of others to war,

spouting half-heartfelt bromides
for the occasion.

Two Old GOP Pros

-We win two governorships!

-No mystery. Pros ran campaigns.

-And lost a New York seat we’ve had since Civil War times.

-There we let ideologues thump their dicks on the table.

-Great formula! Bring outsiders in to hector the natives. And then wonder why they’re pissed.

-Purity is a loser. Always and everywhere.

-They’re claiming they really won.

-What? In the eyes of God? I go by returns.

-Oh well, Left has similar problems.

-Good! Let them all debate! Tour the country with competing sermons down their noses!

-Full of sound and fury.

-And signifying less than nothing! Like leaving a roomful of beauties to jerk off somewhere!

Central Florida AM

never rests. I wake at 4,
decide to catch election
results. Promo assures me

Communists being purged
from White House. Later
will scarf cholesterol

bomb at Mickey D’s,
then scope the beach.

Blatant ones hold hammer
and sickle surfboards aloft
darting into the waves of

what is not, thank God,
a Red Sea yet!

As Wars Drain

to a sort of putrid residue
& it's past time for politic de-
parture, they become academic

exercises. Boards convene now
& issue reports. Each includes
a smashed national explicating this

latest historical bullying & how
it transcends the native variety.

Why Are We in Afghanistan?

Fight terrorism?
The other guys

put us there & we
can’t turn & fly &

save face too? For
petroleum, for...? Oh

a dozen other reasons
according to degree

held & purchasers. Burned
through billions All Right, so
what’s it all worth?

A bag of shit.

The Goldilocks Zone

Swath of celestial path where
new-discovered planet
is just right

for livable climate. And
on your daily orbit do you

find this place, only to be
gravitated to regions
of blackest ice?
