Site lite? Site might?
Is my blogging blight or bright?
No hits by day. No hits by night.
Is my best recourse fight or flight?

Not pining
Not whining
Just my spiel
To keep it real

The nitty gritty
This ain’t pretty
This ain’t witty
Not seeking pity

Pols, Pals & Foes

`

Let’s pick up the pieces; when humdrum Pols take tame stand
And stick to pedestrian speeches; bond to strike up lame band
Once slick admen join them; Pols and Pals both play game bland
They trick to paint tainted world; sell us a spiffed, spoofed name brand

Their nice ads roll ‘round the clock; spread thru the airwaves and stream
“Roll up your sleeves!” they beseech, “Please join vaxxed people’s team!”
While vaccine science, trustworthy, rolls out the Game-Changer scheme
“Jabs” can’t knock out / cure social ills; not at such nauseous extreme

Bottled up in ads’ ointment, the flies team / teem; galore
Trump troglodytes engage erudites; THAT no-win, endless war
Normal notions stump Trump; also his dumbbell / oddball corps
Freedom? Justice? Just buzzwords; they all buzz off / abhor

In most known negative “isms”; Trumpers sprawl, wallow, bask
To learn from pandemics’ hard knocks? They’re not up to that “task”
They won’t even thwart Covid; by simply donning a mask
Are they beyond all redemption? Need anyone ask?

Deep down in the deep end, of the primordial pool
Trumpers get off on their guns; nuff to make them all drool,
Some strafe houses of worship, the workplace, the school
Others are BLAM-BLAM bad cops, who flip off BLM’s rule

Trumpian race and class warfare, proves chronic infection
Dots Pandemic? Dots Climatic? Simps can’t make the connection
Freakin’ fools who can’t fathom the Free Fair election
These days, go on a rampage; foment insurrection

Epilogue:

Granted, verses, above, tell the heart-rending tale
Of my homeland’s decline; beyond the pale / stale
Might “where there’s life there’s hope” wisdom, somehow, prevail?
Well, our Stars and Stripes still fly; Trump’s insurrection did fail!

Big Turn Off

Steadfast workers slave away
Know no perks and score scant pay
Can neither save for rainy day
Nor for life’s phase; where hair turns gray

Boss cuts their hours to display,
His iron fist / control freak sway
Human rights he will betray
He’ll union bust; then bleat,”Hooray!”

Grunts’ top notch work, it’s safe to say
Turns profit for blah boss, blasé
Who, in turn, will dare to bray,
“I did that! It was not they!”

To flesh out boss’s exposé
Workplace welts, unseen, are not okay
His verbal whip cracks spur dismay
More apt for a rap sheet; not résumé

He’ll turn back oft on worksite prey
Turn deaf ear to plebes who stay
Turn up nose at peeved who stray
Turn up in Hell come Judgement Day?

Wellspring of Knowledge

`

Our devout theologians, team with secular scholars
Convene classes regardless of blue and white collars
Some deliver in whispers; others dispatch in hollers
Life’s wisdom eternal; never gauged in mere dollars

Preachers / teachers embued by resolve that’s unblinking
Champion humankind’s kind, cogent, consistent, thinking
To age-old Wellspring of Knowledge; they are interlinking
The life or death query, “How many folks will be drinking?”

Blocked Heads

If you call home sweet home, an enlightened nation
Keep in mind, free elections might not lead to elation
Not when candidates’ heads conceal constipation
To empower such doody, will cause consternation

To vote wisely, is akin to high colonic’s irrigation
It’ll unblock the backups; break up, too, these words “ation”
To vote otherwise, elects heads; flush with fecal matter
If they prove too tuff to flush; they’ll never scram / scatter

George Floyd (One Year Later)

`

All citizens, sentient and civil, mourn for George Floyd; of course
We know there’s no way in Hell, we could ever endorse
That white racist cop / horse’s ass; high on his high horse
Who said, “Whoa!” to due process; spurred undue deadly force;
Whose knee snuffed out life / justice; sans microgram of remorse

`

For countless other such victims; we grieve, too, of course
Be our locale bustling metropolis or town branded “One Horse”
To depose cops, demented; is the Step One we endorse
Step Two, vet job seekers, well; to create principled force
For, unless cops can feel human, we’ll feel buyer’s remorse

Wave or Cave? (1 Quick Limerick #106)

`

Corona containment Qs to interject:
Are revamped rules sane, sage, safe and correct?
Our hello wave to truths solid?
Or jello cave to pols squalid?
Will covid resurrect or genuflect?

Pandemic Elegy

`

Oh, the high hopes I had had for humanity
That Corona-V’s “lessons”, could usher in sanity

Yet, the chronic infirmities; confirmed grim fatalities
Failed to touch every heart; teach all righteous realities

The food insecure; the ailing uncured folks, rife
Cannot claim birthright to the long and good life

So, society still stagnates; suffers abundance of denseness
The trigger happy oft spawn, sheer sorrow’s immenseness

Be breaking news gun nuts, civilian or cop
There’s no way in Hell, they ever can stop

When warlords gleefully slay, each new conflict’s white dove
Ditto couplet’s conclusion; mentioned above

Greed for green and green envy; both too frequently meet
At the crash prone intersection; namely Main and Wall Street

Then there’s the myopic, moronic throne sitter asses
Who flat-out refuse to reduce greenhouse gasses

The rightwing’s science deniers pooh-pooh Covid infection
And their spin doctors downplay their Jan. 6th insurrection

In our world, infamy glutted / gutted by inanity
Corona V’s lessons could not lessen insanity

Limer-ICK! (1 Quick Limerick #105)

The Fascist is hell-bent on human rights harmin’
His brown nosers act-out in freak show, alarmin’
Their mouths drool praise for Sir Grump,
Slick puckered lips smooch his rump?
And cheeky tongues morph into surrogate Charmin™?
