Grimmer Than Grimm

`

A Grimm-esque bedtime tale; don your nightgown
‘Bout bleach blonde fond of face paint of a clown
Who thrives; connives to drive Libs out of town
Watch his eyes glare, nostrils flare and lips frown

`

His tongue wags; vows his fascist crackdown
Plots to roll tanks; watch Democracy drown
Once darkness descends, he’ll don shitty shirt brown
Re-throne his fat ass, For Keeps; NEVER doff crown

`

`

`

Be people Vaxxed OR Unvaxxed, We
can still shed and spread the batcrap
crazy contagious coronavirus which,
in turn, spawns new variants; which,
in turn, could, eventually, render the
available vaccines worthless; which,
in turn, will drag out the pandemic’s
needless suffering, illness and death!

HENCE… this easy as pie, cover your
nose and pie-hole/hole-up heads-up:

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

Let’s hoist high, our doled out, stiff libations
Voice doleful toast: “To the worldwide ghost nations.”
Where profligates promulgate fascistic reigns
Where proles can’t produce any tautly pulled reins
Where liberty / life drown in storms’ driving rains

`

`

`

Be people vaxxed or unvaxxed, we
can still shed ‘n’ spread the batcrap
crazy contagious Corona-V; which,
in turn, generates new variants ‘n’
needlessly prolongs the pandemic!

Hence, this easy as pie, cover your
nose ‘n’ pie-hole / shelter advisory:

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

On the qui vive ~ Haiku

`

Ponder the posers;
potentates “omnipotent”
deep down impotent

`

`

`

Forgive my recycled abridgment of yesterday’s post. But, in my defense this is a defining, do or die moment in the history of humankind; even the lexicographers’ anxiety is bleeding into their work; in other words / their own words…

“on the alert or lookout: duty requires the earnest liberal to spend most of his time on the qui vive for fascism!”

Volodymyr v. Vlad (Haiku)

`

Vitriolic Vlad
vocal vulgar villainous
vapid vacuous

`

Vlad violator
violently vile vicious
venomous viper

`

Volodymyr vies
vows visible viable
visceral vengeance

`

Vile Vlad’s vexed victims’
verve vigor vitality
valiant valorous

When Poetic Justice Prevails…

`

Verse versus venue
Volodymyr vanquishes
virulent vile Vlad

Happy Hollow-Days?

Prelude…

Ah, the time honored Holiday Traditions
Hitherto robust, cheery and tasteful
Nowadays busted, dreary and wasteful
Cannot live sans the former
Alas, must exist with the latter

No thanks, to the headless and soulless
Who only see convention in political rally terms
And contort holidays to conform to their flattened sphere
It begs a rundown of their rundown, festering festivities
Hence, this hammered down, Hollow-Days Roster

November…

Thanksgiving’s intent, once-upon-a-time pure
A day to display gratitude for each fall’s harvest
Yet, ’twas utterly corrupted by past, white man’s greed
Pummeled by Manifest Destiny’s – Genocide’s 1 – 2 punch
Left mass slaughter of Indigenous North Americans, in its wake

Today’s whites hotly deny critical thinker youths such truths
The uncouth fail to see how bygone mentalities of white men
Were precursors to today’s accursed; their MAGA-fest Destiny
Native Americans’ descendants sure to “NO” the RSVPs
Of white inviters, who’d have them over FOR holiday supper

December…

Christmas misbehavior; to upstage a dissed savior?
Sighing gifters hurriedly tack on / tuck in gift receipts
Wisely anticipate the ungrateful gifted
Ingrates neither gifted in smarts nor of wise disposition
All discourtesy of ass backward, parental rearing

Giftees offend gifters; greedily, rush mall-ward
Clutching shopping bagged gift rejects
Sweaty fingers and palms itching to parlay
Liberal return policies into pocketed stone-cold cash
Happy Birthday, Jesus?

December/January…

New Year’s Eve orgy
Animal House magnitude
Nude, drunken revelry
Resolutions Dead On Arrival
Long before each avowed recitation’s echo dies

New Year’s Day; morning after
Misery’s miasma; achy body; pounding head
Multiple over the bowl, beer belly evacuations
Hurled disgusting egesta
Along with epithet laced “never again” ruminations

February…

Valentine’s Day; Cupid’s arrow, awry
Finds deplorable cads ISO of (p)lay
Bamboozling; booze plying their prey
Despicably deeming victims altar sacrifice
Songsmiths asking, “What’s love got to do with it?”

Deep in rude dudes’ brain dead heads
Indecent proposals lead to “have-to” weds
Crossed fingers, behind backs, do back grooms’ “I dos.”
Divorce attorneys, so impatient, they consider
Tuxing up as groomsmen; gowning up as bridesmaids

May / November + July / September / February

Memorial / Veterans Days
Independence / Labor and Presidents’ Days
Original intent buried by a sundry of distractions
Picnics wallowing in fatty animal flesh; awash with stiff libations
Major league play by plays, parades and pyrotechnics

To Upstage Soldiers; valiant, selfless; both survivor and fallen
Marginalize Founders; devalue, their on paper, Democracy
Demean Workers: low paid, overworked, union busted, outsourced
Bastardize: The very Presidency a sitting prez attempted to topple
Ah, the mucked up, nouveau Hollow-Day traditions

Vile, Volatile Vigilante

`

Vile, volatile vigilante
Conceived in grubby grotto
Gestated in amniotic venom
Poisoned by toxic masculinity
Reared in evil environs’ dungeon

Vile, volatile vigilante
Schooled weekdays weakly
Sunday unschooled bleakly
Untutored in civics and ethics
Stripped naked of civility and integrity

Vile, volatile vigilante
Radicalized by hate traffickers
Brainwashed by propagandists
Sheeted/hooded Deep South white
Shirted World War II Scheisse brown

Vile, volatile vigilante
Militarized by gun nut sociopaths
Mollycoddled by militant gestapo cops
Freed by jury of like-minded, brain-dead peers
Unpunished by headless, bench warmer judges

Vile, volatile vigilante
Rewarded handsomely for ugly mayhem; murder
Morphed stick-figure role model
Trotted out fraudulent hero
Dubbed the abnormal new normal

Vile, volatile vigilante
Elevated soon to Sheriff?
Appointed soon to the Bench?
Elected soon to Congress?
Installed soon in Oval Office?

Sketchy Stick Figures

`

Let’s draw out stick-figure, self-proclaimed princesses/princes
Their flaccid, hollow, sketchy, non-accomplishments’ pretense
Their ballyhooed success stories, that, once sunlight exposed
Play out as horror stories before spot-on, paupers’ eagle eyes

The snotty haughty squint down, upturned, scrunched snouts
They taunt, tout; trot out their I-did-it-so-can-you-too tutorials
Intended to edify us “slobs”; well aware of their discordant irony
How, sans a doubt, these swaggering snobs did NOT do it at all

It is the oft ill-gotten financial coups, that prop up uppercrusters
Their high-rise, high and mighty, solid gold, goldbricking lifestyle
All craftily set atop the preexisting foundation; Long Established
By their well-heeled daddies; the gaggle of countless ancestors

“Too big to fail” elitists, who trumpet untold, quasi-legal triumphs
Who frolic in obscene prosperity; traffic in ugly white supremacy
Believe their excrement emits freshly plucked daisies’ fragrance
When, in all honesty, they can stink up a privy with the best of us

The affluent know not of their nation’s heritage & core principles
Errantly reckon their flags’ thin fabric gauges patriotism’s depth
Chickenhawks all, who provoke needless, endless, win-less wars
To be fought not by the rich wolf, but by the poor sacrificial lamb

The opulent ilk swim in the cesspool of sycophancy and cultism
No questions asked, they’ll go on a raze the homeland rampage
At the drop of their fascistic, narcissistic sore loser hero’s red hat
The guilty exonerated/further emboldened by swim-mate judges

One would expect gratitude to waft off of the billionaires’ attitude
To swathe numbnuts feds who grant ‘em extravagant tax breaks
And top cops, who blind eye anarchists/scofflaws/usurers/grifters
But, not in a land where the hoity-toity always trump the hoi polloi

Let’s compare and contrast high society’s shallow Hallies & Hals
To trusty Janes & Joes who, for entire lifetimes, struggle & strive
To do everything ethically and strategically right, yet, in The End
Have little to show for our honest labors’ Blood, Sweat and Tears

Site-Seers Incited?

`

Most any platform’s site-seers, can act quite mysterious
They’ll not “Like” posters’ posts? Yet “Follow”? How curious!
Doth the content they view, ever make them feel furious?
Incite backlash towards bloggers, that could prove injurious?

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
