Crowds of xenophobes

Gather to feast on his bile

Hail to The Donald

The latest right-wing tyrant

Spewing hate to the masses


~~ Dominic R. DiFrancesco ~~

Mephitic Fool

Mephitic fool

On barfly stool

Swills his fifth of bourbon.


He sounds the alarm

Falls and fractures his arm

Now he needs a surgeon.


In a sling his arm hangs

Ivory cast helps the pangs

But not his inimical perversion.


Bartenders threshold was met

Exhaling vapor of cigarette

By poison now he’s unburdened.

Mindlovemisery’s Menagerie – Wordle Week #24


Have you become so ridiculous

That you justify your ill actions and commentary

With the blanket phrase…“I didn’t know.”?


Has age taught you nothing,

No process of discovery,

No method to discern.


Did your parents not instruct you well

In the virtue of restraint,

Knowledge of right and wrong,

In common courtesy?


You speak and act as if ignorant of the consequences;

Lobbing pain, physical and psychological haphazardly,

Without regard for the well-being of your victim.


Even in light of your blunders,

You deem your flaming rhetoric insignificant,

Offering no apology, no embarrassment, no sorrow.


Portraying yourself as the fool,

Friends and loved ones distance themselves,

Hoping you’ll see the error of your ways.
