Unity Poem For Stupid Bumpkins

by William Skink

I’ve got a good post coming tomorrow, but I keep breaking my own rules to mitigate anger by taking peeks at Twitter, and the poem I wrote today seemed tailor-made for smug MFers like CNN’s Jake Tapper, who had this to tweet:

Jake, and all his fellow corporate cum-buckets in corporate media, THIS POEM IS FOR YOU!


neoLIB and neoCON
hand in hand now
nothing wrong
hooray they say the 
our schemes are safe
our empire, strong

ends achieved
forget the means
you stupid bumpkins
now take a knee
and if you don't
we'll test your path
for psycho tendencies
with triad math

see them cheering?
that's our tribe
masks on faces
day and night
masks all plastered
alone in cars
quick submission
they beg for bars

but not the kind
where the merry meet
to act like humans
to eat and drink
no, No, NO!
that will not do
we cannot risk even

so stay inside
and stay away
from other humans
night and day
and if you don't
the tech will know
and quickly report you
to Grandpa Joe
