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

Hallow Not / Follow Not

`

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

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

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

`

`

`

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

Coprophagy

`

Into fake news / views Trump spews; his moron minions ALL buy
Their wholly*, vacuous minds; suck up, too, his BIG LIE
These mucked up cultists have run amok; have gone SO awry
Were Don to barbecue doo-doo; they’d ALL give it a try!

`

*holey would work here, too.

`

`

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

King Gink (no mere anagram)

`

Intro: This poem will be familiar to the one or two folks, who happened by on or around its 08/09/21 posting date. However, since then, my ongoing creative process has necessitated my deleting the original version, amending the headline, adding a better concluding verse and making other subtle revisions to intensify the tenor and smooth out the meter. Check it all out…

`

Past emperor, sans clothing, flashed fat ass; flaccid dink
Yet, “felt” faux frilly finery, fringed in fluff; furry mink
Blondie’s cultish Klan hangers-on, guzzled his Kool-Aid drink
While court jester ass kissers, swooned in his nether stink

In less time than it took for our rolled eyes to blink
Orange man rolled out deception, with sly, wicked wink
With wealth, he slopped rich hogs; drowned dirt poor in red ink
And stomped deep carbon footprints; taking Earth to the brink

From most any health benchmark, States ain’t in the pink
For he sickened the masses; with bug / bigotry’s kink
The pig plundered the piggy bank; left scant pennies to plink
No stable genius is he; he, who apes Missing Link!

We must ensure that sore loser; in sore need of a shrink
Won’t regain the throne; VainMan’s poll stats must sink
Won’t restain the world stage; to the wings he must slink
Just deserts for THAT seditious, fascistic fink!

Be forewarned, flocks of sheeple, he’s worse than you think
He’s traitor, racist and grifter; hoodlum prone to hoodwink
Let’s dress down the ex-emperor; that contemptible gink,
Since he defies mental health, he belongs in the clink!

`

`

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

Which End Nears? ~ Quick Limerick 109

`

Even pandemic pros can’t say for sure
Determine Corona V’s M.O. du jour
Might each variant, new?
Turn / tighten the screw?
Will Covid vaccines get trounced or endure?

`

`

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

One Quick Limerick (#012)

 

Cabinet members deserve harsh critique,

RE their butt-kissing / bootlicking technique,

Lips buss boss’s heinie,

Tongues flick leather shiny,

One wonders how they still manage to speak!

 

This limerick is in response to #45’s recent photo-op.

 

Alternate version::

 

Cabinet members deserve harsh critique,

RE their butt-kissing / bootlicking technique,

Lips buss boss’s heinie,

Tongues flick leather shiny,

It’s to their boss, NOT FOR US, that they speak!

 

 

One Quick Limerick (#011)

The outcome to this limerick’s story, while plausible, is purely speculative and fake news. However its underlying facts, which had served as my inspiration, are proof positive that truth can oft be stranger than fiction.

 

A solar paneled Wall is Grump’s new goal?

Volts generated to build it, bankroll?

“A pipe dream!” yelp maligners?

“Wouldn’t that revolt the miners?”

“Spur them to protest, peg YUGE lumps of coal?”

 

 

One Quick Limerick (#009)

 

Grump’s hot air and hotheaded storming,

Like greenhouse gas generates global warming,

Freakish wind, rain, ice storms,

Have become the new “norms”,

Our weather ravaged, whole world is deforming!
