WHEN THE “BAD MAN” STARTS TO FALL APART

When the “bad man” starts to fall apart
All his accomplices will quickly depart.

When the “bad man” splinters and splatters against his own hard intolerant walls
His “syncopators,” especially Stephen Miller, will turn liquid –
And head down the nearest drain.

When this “bad man” suddenly comes into full frontal view
His monstrous lies and threats will start to become boring.

When his blatant artificiality loses all its former “reality show” power –
When his foreign model/wife appears, in her own reality, just plain hard
When his twitter shrieks of “self-greatness”
Remind people of the cries of a hysterical black crow stubbornly sitting on a nearby fence –
That’s when all his gold-plated Mar a Lago decorations will finally turn to shit.

Every single hammer blow he’s spit out against the truth
Will be remembered – and returned in full.

When his mocking contemptuousness finally comes to an end
And starts going in reverse –
And when his criminality and boorishness
Become obvious for anyone to see –

That’s when the biggest bonfire
Ever built will get lit –

When God, personally, will kneel down and light the match
To this Clown King’s acts, being, and memories –
So they flare up in a bright white flame –
Like a national cathartic torch –

Hopefully bringing our beloved country back to the normalcy
Of which it’s been so long deprived.

 

THE WOMEN ARE COMING

The women are coming – a large group of leaders –
Who’re different from the men –
They’re people with a sense of humor
Who’re capable of laughing at themselves –
And, maybe even, good humoredly, at you!

The women are coming – and it’s about time –
The last man, the worst man, ruling now
Is daily shocking the world with how low men can go.

The resentful portion of the white population has been perpetuating this clown “king”
And he’s been ruling – just like he said he would –
Children, women, and people of color
Running to get out of his way.

Yes, the women are arriving – and just in the nick of time –
We really need them!
Not a bunch of “Marys” or “Marthas,” but a strong group of political “Messiahs”
Strewing miracles all over the face of America –
Each of our society’s tears turning into joy.

The men who’ve belatedly become ashamed of archaic paternalistic roles
Have been supporting these women –
Especially since such men no longer feel compelled to embody male hardness or violence
And, as a result, they’ve developed a deep yearning for mature sane women,
As well as for all the young energetic mothers
Who’ve recently expressed a strong desire to put our nation’s house back in order.

God says: “It’s the women’s turn now –
Please, get out of the way!”

TIME TO SLOW DOWN

When the world moves forward
Faster than ordinary lives are used to

Anger may grow – with people starting to look for someone or something to blame –

That’s the nature of the world –
Which just keeps on turning

One day America is 80% white
And then, a few years later, 49% –
Who’s to blame?

One day the world sings along with Perry Como
And then, a few years later, is “down” with black rapper syncopation –
What’s the remedy?

Getting angry does no good – since, in that case, one only ends up hating oneself –
Getting stupid doesn’t work either.

When change is too massive –
People sometimes call on a clown king to enter the world’s arena –
And wreck everything in sight.

Eventually, calm returns and the broken pottery gets swept up –
The clown king turning back into its constituent rotten vegetables – and disappearing –
Life returning to normal.

I worry most when the world begins moving too fast
For regular human beings to keep up –

Perhaps, now, it might be good to slow things down –
Just a bit.
