A Stroll Thru Society’s Garden

`

The well heeled ne’er-do-well
Saddled by his high steed
Partays in excesses
Partly, excrement greed

He thinks poorly of poor
Not of his hue, race and creed
While prince, his Klan, prospers
Paupers’ red ink doth bleed

Deems white privilege his birthright
Which he won’t ever cede
In his dreamscapes he’s bad cop
His victims’ throats / groins get kneed

He yearns for plebes to bow, kowtow
Genuflect to his breed
When they non-stop, slop his ego
He’ll pig out on such feed

As the pontificator, pompous
Be it screeched speech or scrawled screed
He’ll get off on his power
To morph vile words to done deed

That ego tripping praise junkie
Doth one thing with warp speed
Arrives right on schedule
Deep down in snake pit of need

In short, he’s capricious, avaricious
The vicious bad seed
Stifles society’s garden
Like each run riot weed

To address well the masses
The heady adage to heed
To empower crude rude dudes
Means we’ll never be freed

Doest Not hallow
Profligates callow
Principles fallow
Personalities sallow
Priorities shallow

Disallow, Do Not follow
Parodies of Apollo
Priggish peeps hollow
Piggish who wallow
Pills bitter to swallow

Taliban

`

They’re unruly, misogynistic; despotic
Act unduly pietistic; psychotic
Their comportment is dense; idiotic
Devoid of empathy; feelings erotic

These stupes steeped in stupor and trances; hypnotic
Are hard core hardliners; soulless; robotic
They render societal flesh dead; necrotic
Depress poor folk, till they’re blue; cyanotic

This horde who’s oppressive, obsessive; neurotic
Thwarts cosmos; sets forth path; chaotic
The scourge they spread hath no antibiotic
Their stillborn régime dropped from swill; amniotic

Political Poetic Parable

`

Narrative:

Righties’ twofold ambition: untold, unneeded wealth;
Unchecked and unbalanced; parliamentary heft

They’ll pay no never-mind; re their crashed mental health
Stand atop rickety platform; good ideas / ideals bereft

They bludgeon common folk constituents; with that dense drama
Render poor jobless and homeless; bloodied by intense trauma

When Stockholm Syndrome / gaslighting; gets huddled masses to cower
Their rash votes snag for brash Righties; till-death-do-us-part power

Moral:

When rank and file find unmet needs; atop hard to reach shelves
That’s far too oft, self-inflicted; since they vote ‘gainst themselves

Dissing Discombobulation

`

Let’s disclose and discuss; each discouraging day
Our sense of disquiet, disgust, dispirit, dismay

We witness disaster, disease, discontent, disarray
Let’s disassemble, below, ills to dis; blow away

Spot the discordant despots; subjects can’t disobey
The fade from view, disenfranchised; who still have no say

Discrimination, discovered; that distasteful display
Disinformation, unchecked, exacts high price to pay

Dishonesty taints; stains souls in hues; dismal gray
Infrastructure’s disheveled; discolored environs’ ashtray

We must disallow, disavow, now; disown tyrants who bray
Discredit their social ills; discard ‘em; keep ‘em at bay

Both disbelievers / disciples, can dispatch life; forward sway
The former will earnestly hope; the latter will solemnly pray

Stay Safe at Home!

New Alice’s New Wonderland

`

Reflect on the Looking Glass; espy each Ancient Faced Clock
Where counterclockwise sweep hands, go tick-tock-tick-tock
Is this glass barrier unbreachable; doth it forevermore block?
Or have humans, yet, to discover; the occult key to that lock?

Each temporal mechanic, bedecked in crisp, tailored lab frock
Knows their beliefs can’t be berated; be belittled like schlock
Volunteer, aptly named Alice; her heroes Armstrong ’n’ Spock
Checks checklist; nears full-length mirror; she’s ready to rock!

Intrepid woman steps thru, infiltrates with one knuckled knock
Father Time waves her way, warily; in state of palpable shock
He quizzes, “Why are you here? To Revere Me? Jeer?? Mock???
Once she dispels his suspicions; towards each other both flock

She asks, “Can you halt aging, in here; set back our Bio clock?”
“Fade away wrinkles / crows feet; acne scars / the marks pock?”
“From our seen-better-days bods; can our years you lop; dock?”
“Alas Alice,” Pop sighs, “Your postulate’s PURE POPPYCOCK!!!

Gratuitous Analytics Booster Shot?

Dear Readers,

Seeing how this website hath arrived at death’s door, my options are twofold. Either make my professional exit or explore; i.e., (subject matter-wise) seek, find and, from time to time, take the road less traveled. Worry not, I’ll endeavor to loiter within the realm of PG-13! That duly noted…

`

Lips part, oh, so reluctantly; straying south
Breathlessly asking non – verbal questions
Lingering stopovers elicit desired answers;
stimulus for intimate, imminent follow-ups?
