The Latency

That the new thing now?

Month: July, 2017

make it so

sure

now there’s this
orange lunatic
in power
and we’re sitting around
shrieking
trying to figure
out
what to do
how to get by and
how to
get him out
before he does too much more
damage

meanwhile the damage has
already been done
he’s just the easy face to
paste on
how much worse it
continues
to get

the last one talked a
good game
but wasn’t much in the end
and the one
before him told so many
lies that he
couldn’t work out
which were sort of true
and which were complete bullshit

so he just let his
handlers work out the details
and kept on
waving the flag

the one before him
was the saddest of all
worked the midpoint and
said all the right things
and there was all this love for him
as
the money rolled in

turned out he was basically
salted
shit
on crostini
and probably a
rapist
by the way

and it didn’t matter
and it doesn’t matter
now he’s a statesman

and so is the one who
lied us
into a war that’s still
ongoing

and so is the one who bombed
Cambodia

survive long enough
and you, too,
can become revered

meanwhile

life
was
life
and
kept floating
on
and the money kept floating upward
and the noise kept
driving a wedge

so here we are
noise battling noise
anger up against anger
and what it really is
is
everyone
just trying to make the rent

not so Irish

every time I mow
the lawn
I think:
I probably just ran over
a
four-leaf
clover
