I state I can salve a controversy by
confronting female responsible. My

friend laughs “She’d eat you alive!”
Oh? Am I that...? Whatever. Incredulous

at first, but once thought permitted,
awful clarity. At other times, meaning
to spring inside political frenzies but

warned of accelerating wheels meshing
within wheels. Thus I’d show hopeless-
ly anachronistic, getting crushed
into the bargain.

Okay then, good intentions, so
Road to Hell when you act on ‘em,
track past chaos when you don’t.

President Thrusts Hand. Again

to Republicans. They, block-
heads running for office

perpetually say no. Along
with their Rich Mantra. Join-

ing, thus, for un-legislation.
The Supreme Court purloins
that task.

State of Union

President touts his
laundry list to supporters,

raucous. Other band,
save when he fingers
schemes they feel

they’ve birthed, sits further down
on its hands. Why even be present
in such a pickling? For ritual and

for face time. Gangs
of Faces already too
familiar, collapsed from

the gravity of political angst.
Let’s vary the song and
send OUT the clowns.

Pair o’ Dem Operatives

-They took Mass when we wuzn’t lookin!

-Shame on us!

-Another pretty face. Male model in pickup truck.
Thus semi-rugged man of the peoples.

-I love it! Both sexes can get a hardon. How many more of those they got back in the reactionary garage?

-Or beauty queens? Lift ‘em right off the calendars
hanging there.

-The total whacks got their divine Sarah already.

-Looking great and doornail dumb.

-Hey! She can learn.

-Plant a couple of chips in there and she’ll talk an hour on
Frederick the Great.

-Will that be required?

-Y’never know.

-Less she says the better! For everybody’s sake!

-Yeah, like the young quarterback. You don’t give him too much to do. Too many screwup factors looming.

-“Looming” is what we’re gonna get!

-Them too.

Pair o’ Top Guns

-He’s seeking bipartisan again. A chance he means it?

-No matter. Block everything! Nothing is too petty.

-That’s not a strategy. It’s a stance. And the people are
getting fatigued with...

-We’ll hit him in more major ways when the next big disaster comes roaring down the pike.

-We’ll boost it!

-Amen! For the time being we know our brand is in the toilet.

-Hey! We’ve won a few lately!

-Piddling. Candidates who ran away from the label. Independents, hah hah, or poseurs in pickup trucks.

-Love that later one! How many times more can....?

-Even our licking media dogs will tire of that one. Bullshit can never really have legs.

-That’s why it’s bullshit. But I weary of our constant obstruction. It’s a loser in the long run.

-Yeah, but there’s an overriding virtue for now: Clarity!

Old Girl has been torqued
and porked by ideologues.

Yielding such inanities
as Money is Speech
when it buys elections,

and the vague militia
of humankind is free
to try machine guns in

wasting recalcitrant
neighbors or offing
faithless lovers.

A Convention is past due.
O Left and Right will shriek
at each other, but moderates

might true her with
some modern sense.

Our Song

Nature Boy

Named before the syrupy song, I think, guy run-
ing roads around West Chester, Pennsylvania in
a sort of diaper. In his 70s by then, best guess.

Lived with sister--harking back, I, to news item when
he, as those owning all ranks & regimens, cashes in.

Elvis impersonator hereabouts lives with his mother.
Better for most to dwell with someone, regardless
of prattle from those knowing better about everything--

many of these so thoroughly alone it fulfills prescription
for dank existentialism.

Brace of Rightys

-Haitians want to flee the quakes and horror by getting on wrecks of boats and coming here.

-Thanks but no thanks.

-But they want our good things: opportunity and freedom!

-Yeah? Whiten ‘em up and we’ll see.

-That’s impossible!

-So is everything else.

-God made them the way they are!

-Knew it was SOMEbody’s fault.

Republican Populism

Charity as sum.

And totem,

pouring from late night radio

the Same Old Medicine Show

Cancer cures or more from

Even His Fantasies Clotted

Thus moaning actress
blocked by his 3rd grade
teacher, still young and pretty,

and likewise moaning. Actually,
actress groans on background, then

both shut down for his mas-
culine grunts. Say bye bye since

a clot speeds from leg to brain,
without stopping for coffee.

The Bad News

Our youngsters refuse

A true lack, religious one.
Pro-active ecclesiastics

The Good News

as when they do it from a religious conviction" - Pascal

A Marriage of Fury

Fringe-o Liberals
and Tea Partiers

impale each other
on satire's blade

with animating gusto.
Too bad. They could
make common cause. A-

gainst Wall Street, for one.
Those slicers and dicers

devising insane "products"
to boost bonuses of pirates,

then receiving government bail-
outs for egregious criminality. So

link hands in anger! The rest
being literary pose,
easy to dispense with.

Republicans have been blowing
this Horn of Plenty since 9-11.

Result: we’ve surveilled & wire-

Time for clearer

Latest Great Case

Supremes ponder on
the treacherous foot-

degradingly tangle.

We have people in
our towns and cities

They hardly ponder
but their contribution

immeasurable as the basic

The Listening

Black friend tells me some-
thing undeniably true, but

I can’t hear it
anymore. Is there

a duty to keep hearing? Or, as
I inevitably conclude, no
duty at all towards anything

at all. Just too down
or up rational, thinking.

One’s system filters
an aesthetic with

The Market Providing Its Magic

As I soft-pedal reservations touch-

the Banker, oleaginous

Shortly, reach only his

of course,
All of it.

At least the canary

The Robot Feels Me Up
-The robot feels me up.

-That’s you. Sex in everything.

-You like it I suppose.

-Wish it’d go further.

-Men are filth! But that’s not news.

-No, it’s not. But I’ll inquire about plugging in a less intrusive module.

-Thank you. The Age of Electronic Chivalry is not dead!

-Something like that. Let’s...just get by.

-Can life become more stupid? Patted down every time you leave your house!

-Republicans wanted only if going on trip of more than five miles.

-Yeah they’re for FREEDOM. Cue laughter.

-So I could drive four miles with a rectum bomb and get on the Helo-Bus
and blow it up over the city!

-For what reason?

-Don’t hafta have one. All the ridiculous causes are dead.

-Along with religion. All hail!...something.
