Item: You know that server to Russia that nobody investigated? Well, we should have; Trump is their man in Washington! (And imagine, the Dems told us Sanders couldn’t win cause the GOP would call HIM a Communist?!)
Item: Pence is a theocrat who would torture gays.
Democrats do NOT need to “keep an open mind” about Trump and his wrecking crew. We did that with George the Dumber, recall? How did that work? Two wars, trillions of dollars and thousands of dead people? Clinton and Obama are wrong; priding yourselves, as Americans, on an “orderly transition of power” when you are passing the government to the Trumpians is worse than arranging deck chairs on the Titanic. It’s like passing matches to an arsonist, opening the gates of Minas Tirith to the Orks, or selling your children to vampires. I’m NOT ready to make nice. I’m not going to make nice. I’m a lousy poet — Joni Mitchell and Leonard Cohen are not lousy — click links even if my verse sucks!
Item: Poem – Dear Hillary and Barry
I know you mean well, broken-hearted
Don’t tell me to “accept” or bow down
Don’t ask my mind to open and drop my brain
For no, dear ones, don’t pretend normal
This is not normal because now, now, now
The barbarians are not at the gates
They are in the bedroom, the kitchen, the bath!
They are in the courts with their Book
Rewriting our lives, be a “good slave” or else
It’s like France being told the Vichy government
Was really French and really governed
They are in our heads chanting “your fault”
They are blaming us for willful stupidity
That they fostered in “useful idiots” to win
Saying we lack sympathy for those they use
When they will throw away their minions
Use, abuse, and discard like human kleenex
Resist, believe, say NO – though there may be chains
How long would you have chains last?
Your life? Or your grand-childrens?
Please, do not “hasten to behave“!
Pin your heart tight to your sleeves
Sleeves of brown coats or purple dresses….
