They promised to return with all the wonderful goods we couldn’t
get on the island.
We waited and waited and the children grew up and left to work
in horrible factories.
Finally, complained to the sons and daughters of those who promised.
They took mercy, we thought. Tramp Ship stopped by.
When we opened our crate it was shit.

Okay then. 150 thousand for clothes. That's the accounting
from Sarah Palin's campaign. A fact.
How do you know they weren't stolen? Or strongarmed
from these stores with threats?
I go by the newspaper account, which is based on
reading of the published finances. I never judge and
I certainly don't speculate, Left or Right.
Don't you think a Hockey Mom'd go to Sears or Pennys?
I don't know much about women. I had three sisters
and a mother and I'm still in a daze.
Sticks and stones...
That's where you're wrong. Just look at McNasty's campaign.
Dr Goebbels but with a whiter, puffier face. Words intended to hurt
very often hurt.
Not me. Besides, you're partisan. I'm not.
You're a useless weight on the earth. Fart in a windstorm. To mix
Insult for rhetorical advantage. Won't work with me. And I consciously avoid
metaphors and all colorful language.
Nothing works! If Marilyn Monroe were alive I'd like her
to rub her cunt in your face!
And I'd say "Young woman! Cease and desist! Perhaps a psychiatrist could fathom why you would thrust yourself forth so."
You bit that bait. Speculation never being your bag.
I erred. Let's stick to the present and be equitable
to all parties. Now and forever.
That's why you're called Super Fair Jerry! Fanfare with kazoos, please.
A good man, I hope.
Yeah, drain a body of blood and that's what you get!

-Well, Mr Big Time Banker! Haven't had the chance
to chat since the huge government bailout.
How do you feel about it?
-Like I'm in Vegas playing on House Money, a whore
at each elbow.
-But you don't sense the folks who are furious
over Capitalism, the obscene pay packages and
golden parachutes. And now this payout for
incompetence and greed!
-What would it take to wake you up.
-I could turn that question back on you and your impotent ilk.

-Is that debate? For president?
-Yes, clerk says.
-They never have, on the lobby set. “If folks like it, they can go back to room.”
-They’re like to do that anyway, no?
-The black one looks calm. Oooo I’d be a wreck! Bright as a whip they say.
-White one mad.
-In all senses, looks to me.
-I don’t know any equivalent to him at home.
-‘Tis a bit like taking old Uncle on miserable holiday, him making faces
at everyone on the train.

-I hope not! That's just prose. This is pure poetry!
-Too ironic for that.

even after the dizzy mortgages we slicked him with.
-Oh well! What’s he there for? I mean, why candy it over?

-That’s the liberal press. They want justice, of all things.

Did Uncle Sam pay for the whores they ran through there?

-Are you adjusting your banker's lifestyle upward again?
-Vacation to Paris is back on.
