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!

Front Page Poem

`

Fascists blur the facts / blither; alter and natter
Their backers sure slither; don’t falter to flatter

Fat cats squirrel obscene wealth; grow fatter and fatter
Peddlers ply shoddy wares; tricked out by shady patter

Hacks spew the news / views; akin to spin, din and chatter
Naysayers nix science canon; mix in clutter and clatter

Misogynists fiscally, physically batter
Gun nuts, oft reared “off target”, wind up mad as a hatter

Triggered psychos paint towns red; blood of victims they’ll splatter
Targeted scholars / chuchgoers; bite the dust; or must scatter

Police racists oft profile; don’t believe Black LIves Matter
Minorities flatlne; their freedom / justice doth shatter

Insurgents detest Constitution; their intent to tatter
MAGA morons on rampage; serve up upheaval on platter

Will we persist or perish? Corona cares not a smatter
From that microbe’s killer perspective, it’d opt for the latter

Brief

`

Violence whets slayers’ appetites, like vile aperitif
Each “big shot” boy in blue, bigoted; robs black lives like a thief
Each gun nut shoots down the upright; that’s his M.O. cheap, chief

Like the pandemic’s virus, the butchers’ 3-D motif,
Is to Devastate, Debilitate, Decimate; beyond our belief
Sickos’ societal scourge, sickens survivors with grief

We, the preyed upon masses, have a legitimate beef
For we have nary a prayer, see no sign of relief,
How doth one quell minds, unwell? Deprogram? Debrief?

Stay Publicly / Properly Masked!
Stay Safe at Home!
Stay Healthy!

The Threat To MLK’s Dream (One Quick Limerick #037)

 

A shithole regime’s “prez”, with demented glee,
Boasts he’s the least racist guy, there’ll ever be???
But he’ll buttkiss KKK,
Let bad cops blow blacks away,
And scold pro sports protesters, who “take a knee”!
