This project has 9 lives like a kitty kat. 9 Poems in 9 days. A rambling rant, that promises to increase my boldness and pushes me to keep promises I made while sober. As my friend the West Coast Bandit will attest, hollow promises are reserved for the evening of Hollow Gestures (to those of you not in the know, this is Thanksgiving Eve, when many return home and make grand promises to rekindle relationships and capture camaraderie that was never really there to begin with). Also, a hearty shout out and credit to Ben S. for suggesting this inspirational word. Gracias!
Enjoy this next offering of benevolent intention. It’s defining…
lives in a house of white.
One after another.
The pace is relentless.
Buffoonery built in advance.
will do its best to build a fence.
Reality questioned, truth denied.
Epitomized by one most despised.
Irrational calls to violence.
Divisive language makes no sense.
Mystifying Malfeasance Manager.
The rube’s rube.
Not much use.
Free press chider.
Climate change denier.
Built upon a swamp.
Consequence free life.
A hero of the Pharma Bros.
Ad libbing like a vulgar vulgarity.
Vain, despite the contradiction.
The secret of powerful men is that they surround themselves with people that cannot tell them they are assholes.
The worst that money can buy.
False pride, makes up for large smallnesses.
Hands-on, but can’t hold much.
Stiffing the help.
No wages for jobs done.
Impotent, irascible, irritable, idiocy.
The most false idol to date.
Handing the keys to the kingdom to someone ill suited, and incapable of possessing the bandwidth or intellectual curiosity to seek out help from any and all resources at their disposal.
Tweets of terror.
Sowing, evil, hate, hatred, indignity, malice, and enmity,
Among our enemies and friends.
Everyone is waiting for someone else to do something.
Someone else better get a jump before Unhinged Malevolence delivers us to antiquity.
We can do better.
