The Last Civil War of the Former United States of America, Early 21st Century

As usual, no winner, only some loser
Less bloody, starved, poisoned, and crippled ...
One gasp left a shitty tongue to boast with.

Women everywhere raped and ripped open,
Blacks, sure, Muslims, too, but also women
Of any kind who’re educated and skilled —

They were threats to ignorance and vanity,
So guns up their genitals to compensate
For pricks that will never be hard enough.

Children, those not slaughtered, bestialized
Lost not only innocence but also
The light in their eyes that alone makes good

On the promise our species might have fulfilled,
Otherwise now nothing but appetites
For murder, torture, fucking, and religion –—

“I don’t give a shit if he’s Christian or not,” *
Screamed one of the Army of the Seduced,
Sowing the Word of Hatenanity.

So America was to be great again,
Made in the image of its enemies
It had always sworn it was better than.

Fascism Lost in Alabama Last Night

(I must retract my "Last Post" notice [12.07.17] to add the following to "Senator Pedophile" [11.22.17]. I know this will infuriate my detractors, but I don't care.) Trumpy-Dumpy had a great fall. Everyone now smells it all. So he bannons for Roy -- Oh, he's a good ol' boy -- Forgetting...

Beautiful Words: Vulva

Against misogyny & misogamy, always & everywhere. Women, too, possess free will & are not slaves, however men demonize them to aggrandize power & pamper their egos. Free before all (including god, if such is her creed), she answers for herself, now & eternally, to her doom whatever that may be.

By the Waters

Many ideas and precursors figure in this poem – Psalm 137, e.g., or Verdi’s NABUCCO. But motivating the poem is my horror of vengeance. Why does the Hebrew god reserve vengeance to himself? Because mankind can’t handle it, can only get it wrong. Just so, the vengeful are tearing America to pieces.


America is drowning to death in Re-thug-li-gun-Russian lies, propagated by media owned by HOL-E-garchs who consider themselves above the law -- carbon copies of Putin and Putin-wannabe Trump. As a man who has spent his life searching for humane intercourse with others, I can only mourn for us all.
