Nancy The Ripper

As Nancy rips the State of Union speech

She teaches all the children to deny

the freedom of another person’s right

expressing what is in their heart’s delight.

The highest office must deserve respect

as all the children form a circle, sing

“Oh, beautiful for spacious skies protect

our country that we love and most revere”.

As Nancy rips our honorable president,

she purses lips and with a stony stare

her hatred emanates beyond the room.

She spreads her glare about us with her gloom.

She teaches freedom of our speech is dear

but only if she may agree, that’s clear!

Martin’s Dream

“Darkness cannot drive out darkness; only light can do that. Hate cannot drive out hate; only love can do that.” Martin Luther King, Jr.

Martin’s Dream

I fall into the blackest hole in space
my soul now travels through the darkest scene;
a foreign place where there’s no time or grace.
I move through tunnels of relentless scream.

A message from my minister of flight:
“From swirling depths you’re not allowed escape.
And you will fall forever out of sight.
It’s written here for relevance of hate:

You broke the rules! Your punishment will end
when darkness turns to morning’s crashing fuss;
when love’s the rule regardless of the win
and Rosa sits beside you on the bus.”

The clatter of my clock begins to sing
as Monday calls all sinners to its ring.

 

 

 

“Men in Orange Jumpsuits”

 

She wanted the attention and the wealth.
Bold disrespect she shows Memorial Day
for Christians dressed in orange to their death;
be-headings all the rage is Griffin’s way.

I weep for Man whose lost all sense of shame
I shudder for her stupid, bloody hands
I feel the filth just mentioning her name
A comedy of sorts lost to her fans.

Catastrophe to those who clap and grin.
There will be sorrow for the rest of us.
A lost humanity attuned to sin,
we’ll view our part , if any, with disgust.

The heart has withered once the head is lost
and so Man’s spirit where there is no trust.

“Pause the Parsing”

President’s dismay

at White House briefing parsing

gives me ample pause.
