Disrepair

`

When disunity, duplicity, incivility, irresponsibility overrule
Society falls into disrepair along these disappointing lines

Ugly voter suppression (f)laws enforce minority rule status
Empowers the power junkies who help themselves to more

Testy tyrants hose down their puny plots with testosterone
Sociopathic chickenhawks trigger no-end and no-win wars

Bullet blasting (not ballot casting) executes régime change
Perpetrated, perpetuated Big Lie lays waste to Democracy

Boneheaded, cultish, sycophantic insurrectionists run amok
Try, in 1 scant afternoon, to slay a 2½ century old Republic

Gun nuts shoot up school houses and houses of worship
Badged man’s bigotry / brutality targets people of color

Class warfare fattens the fat cats; flattens the proletariat
Welfare secured for the wealthy screws over truly needy

Non-living wage, no benefits, sweatshops harvest the poor
Human Resources Dept “Cafeterias” serve (up) hired hands

Nutritional and intellectual starvation drain body and mind
Every negative “ism” sows seeds of suspicion and hatred

Runaway greenhouse gasses render our Earth uninhabitable
A deadly, unbridled virus sucks all the air outta the “room”

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

Fortune Cookie Blog (strong leaders)

 

The leader with strong, chronic character flaws can be the pits.
Metaphorically speaking, his ‘tude oft reeks of strong, offensive
body odor. If this issue doesn’t readily go out the window, then
parted voting booth curtains may be our only source of fresh air.

 

 

 

 

 

Today’s Gray’s Anatomy Tutorial ~ 1 Quick Limerick #056

 

The tyrant has thin-skin, thickhead, heart of stone,
His hostile eyes glower, he lacks funny bone,
He has entrails between ears,
Gas passes “thoughts” thru lips’ sneers,
He sits on reptilian brain, overgrown!

 

For more limericks (as well as other verses and song parodies, etc.), head over to my “Categories Menu” and select “Poetry”.

 

 

One Quick Limerick (#006)

 

American government and the American pastime (a.k.a. baseball) both have sets of rules to ensure the players don’t run amok. As for the former… well… read on…

 

A tyrant, not on the ball, waits on deck,

He has not batted, yet. But, what the heck?

He steals home plate! It’s a scam!

Claims to have hit a Grand Slam!

Blind-eyed umpires, don’t keep him in check!

 

Alternate version…

 

A tyrant, who’s off the wall, waits on deck,

He has not batted, yet. But, what the heck?

He steals home plate! It’s a scam!

Fibs he has hit a Grand Slam!

Blind-eyed umpires, don’t keep him in check!
