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

Inconsideration

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.

~
