Press Release: 15 Mar 2018

My fellow Americans. A state of emergency currently exists in our country, brought about by the wholesale invasion of our sacred institutions by uncontrollable and reprehensible forces. The only solution available to us to protect our great nation against these irrational forces is to undertake the immediate construction of an impregnable physical and electronic barrier between our nation and the source of this incursion. Therefore, I order the United States Army Corps of Engineers to reallocate their construction budget in order to erect that physical and electronic barrier surrounding 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue, Washington, DC with all due haste commencing immediately.


He Goes “All In” With A 7-High Hand!

He diverts the funds,

earmarked for a proven threat,

to prevent an empty one.

Are we supposed to guess

(Idiocy? Malignancy?)

the degree of his pathology?

“Come high or stay at home!”

That’s what the gamblers say.

if the man had paid attention,

he’d own Casino’s still, today.

Charity or Wisdom

Listen Up, you grey old goat!

Your racist ways are history.

Does that hate not sere your throat?

That grossly overt bigotry

never fails to offend



thoughtful men.

But since we’re here within this lodge,

I’ll try to muster up some grace,

abide the precepts of wiser men

and curb my urge to pulp your face.

I’ll maintain regard unconditional

despite your beliefs, so unlovable.

More Than Blood

It took many mothers

to make this meager man.

Caring, chastising, comforting in turn.

Mothers from many cultures.

Mothers from many continents.

Occidental, Oriental, African.

Mothers all,

transcending biology,

or logic,

or happenstance.

Mothering just because.




Strong gracious flowers

whom I hold in heart and regard.

His Master’s Voice?

They must think us dogs

salivating to their bells

doing tricks for tiny treats!


And how can they not

when we drool at every cue

playing games they tell us to?


Is there any choice?

After all, they hold the cards

and set the rules we must regard.


Why must we regard

their arbitrary edicts

when their only care

is their self-serving interests?

Bite the hands that feed, I say!

Ignore their strident bellows!

Exercise our every freedom!

Let us run across the meadows!
