Big Enchilada to Pleasing Operative
(some divine Wall St parallel)

I don’t have time for this bullshit. They say A and we counter with B? Prissy crap! Just fuckin lie! Lie! And pound it pound it pound it!

Did I say pound it?

Of course I’ll answer a question. Or QUERy, considering the source.

Truth got no edge. Period. End of story. So, fuck it till it dies!
Then start on the corpse.

In Selling Smoke

on Wall Street it

Divert a shaft

of light to lend

calf can stagger
back to teachers’
pension fund or such

& blurt “I purchased it cuz
what I saw looked good!”

Republicans require cheap labor,
their supine rednecks having
gotten legs under them.

Democrats want new voters.
So it's Social Darwinists vs
Tammany Hall. I'll take latter as

more fitting the warmer tradition
of thumping American Corruption.

The Wave Form

When Russians come to Brooklyn, they’re
babushkas and their stolid beaus, mostly.

Rest, criminals, highly educated, thus
swifter than Italians formerly entrenched.

Fortunately for FBI, some
Doctorates in Vocal Music.

Rich Dad Buys Him

out of all trouble, but
stark plan flunks at
murder. Best outcome

is Father barking then
"I have no son!" Nice

At Democratic HQ

-I like that Dutch door, top and bottom opening separately.

-Yeah we open the bottom to let the thieves in.

-How does that differ from Republicans?

-They open the whole door.

Einstein downplayed
his role in the The Bomb.

More and more as he aged.
We replay dramas, casting
ourselves differently. Light-

ing better sides mostly.
Though it’s also possible

to flip from hero to villain.
But not for long.

At any rate, we hobnob
with motley selves daily. So

hail dear, dazzling Albert,
same as us. Whether wrong

or wronged, God rest him
all road ever he offended!

Protesting America

My closest big intersection
at A1A and 520 a regular Hyde
Park. Bluster under blister-

ing sun, usually by those Rawer Loony
Tunes knowing President a Kenyan. This

being Florida, fuller-fledged All-Whites
amidst them bristle with I got mine so
the rest of you can go fuck yourself.

But today a tonic! Medical Marijuana!
Not acquainted with Mary Jane, though
do have glaucoma. If it gets fierce,
might just like meeting her.

Nothing Should Be Free

Indeed charge double at
The Great Foreclosure Party.

These people still haven’t
learned their lesson.

Wealthy often say "I can’t afford that."
Attention must be paid to them!

Female singing voice instrument of wonder
as it carries the joyful clarity of birds through

silken gauzes to the smoky resonance
of seduction. But when it sets

on edge by going off a ledge shrieking,
it leaves the lovely category of woman
for that of whorish shrew.

The Ban

Karaoke joints and the like
have banned I Did It My Way.
Too many fights. I can see

2 reasons why. 1st, Milquetoast
who did it The Man's Way, period,
& takes umbrage at less than coy

abuse. 2d, the obnoxious
prick who trampled everyone
& rants to this gushy melody.

Lived in cube,

During church

or the ballgame,

When he got home,
exhaled and farted.

TV fun but partly full of

Space Coast

Prez coming here to reassure on jobs
being lost due to shuttle phase out.

Many of the reactionary engineers
give not Shit-1 about anybody

else's loss and grief. But,
you know what? I say
preserve their jobs too,

because that's the end I come from.
As did Hubert Humphrey, lampooned
for such by the minuscule group
of Republican wits. Shame we

didn’t have more of him shoving
out the showy corporate whores.

Frank Yamasaki said
“Don’t Worry, Mom.

This is America!” Later,
allowed 2 suitcases,

interned in Idaho.
Well it wasn’t

& isn’t. Furiously operatic Right
covers The Constitution so

keep 2 packed & savor
the rendition, since

even Idaho impure, defiled
by diffusing Liberal stinks.

Rocco and Bitter Bart

So how's it goin’, Bart?

Same-o same-o. Just bought a shitbox car to get me to my
shitbox job--which I'm suppose to be grateful for.

You mean you're FREE to be grateful for. Such freedom, according to the Right, being a gift from God.

Yeah, Free to be fucked by The Man. Like, continuously.

Hey, you filled out the Four Freedoms with that last one! Where's Norman Rockwell when you need him?

Outsourced, so the boss's whore can eat butter creams.

Rocco reports on his short meetings in South Philadelphia.

Dash into convenience

Drove to station and paid.
Hey, you’re a sucker! scoffed
friends back in Philly. Like,
they’re gonna extradite you?

Well, the way of the transgressor is hard-
ly sans irritation, what with mailbox re-
minders and legal warnings following.

So, give the man the two dollars
a la the old vaudeville routine.

Exotic Loan Products

are much discoursed in
this horrendous aftermath.

Exotic. What soft connotations
compared to Greasy Thievery.

Keeping the same gauzy scrims
bewitching regulators and
the rawly perpetual sucker

much possible,
good ole John Q.

As a specimen, how
I tire of taking bows

Now THAT'S Affirmative Action

In hearings investigating
the appalling financial disaster,

we usually get paunchy execs called
onto the broadloom, or their wolf-
ish accountant-henchmen. But today

we have women! And they fucked
the doomed American Public just

as efficaciously by shoving up
these meretricious fantasies.

The Movement--A Saga of Feeling

With simpletons allied, he
dumbs it down. In re-
sponse, they amp it up,

such righteous noise prompt-
ing young reporters to indulge
their gift of daft sarcasm. In all

the tinny racket he confides
to the most fiery spokesman that
he’s Hamlet to his Fortinbras.

Who transmutes the latter
to Farts n’ Brass,
adopting it as his nickname.

Later poised as our
sensitive intellectual's
sole contribution.

Grand Auld Party

At Obama rallies lately, lots
of youngsters percolating be-

sit still. GOP might exhibit a few,

Didn’t happen. One can

Texas Fascists

hammer history
texts rightwards.

Some osmotic effect
will surely bedevil
highschoolers, but

the more optimistic
outcome is no matter

if the books are slanted
by Communist, Fascists,
or Nudists, youngsters re-

main secure in their own knowledge
that adults are full of shit anyway.

Drill, Babies, Drill!

Off of everywhere.
1st the black balls
on the beaches.

Don’t be silly, say Chambers of
Commerce. It’s nothing! & then

the Perfect Storm coating
everything with oil.

The Caribbean Hurricane
making its monster way over

our Eastern Mainland in-
to the Atlantic & back with
lesser fury. But enough.

Although, with newer safeguards,
it just can’t happen. Sound!

Uh huh. Prince William Sound.
Florida Tourism, for one,
shot for two years at the least.

Though publicists will toil mightily
lying us back. Perhaps with the line

that the beaches resemble
the volcanic ones of Hawaii.

What do the birds and fish resemble?
Nature’s Brand New Minstrel Show?
