Go fuck yourselves you stupid hicks
You dumb destructive yahoo pricks
You morons all on Cruz control
Who’d suck our nation down a hole
Because you cannot stand the fact
The White House occupant is black
You idiots without a clue
As to why, as to who
You’re carrying the water for
The scumbag Kochs, the schmuck Limbaugh
You zombie ghouls who’d suffocate
Us all with your abiding hate
Who march in lock-step boor by boor
To take food from the mouths of poor
To take all succor from the sick
Lunatic by lunatic
Maniac by maniac
You vote to push us further back
Unhinged by ideology
You do not hear, you do not see
Nor do you weep, nor do you care
As you watch the fabric tear
But rather you seem pleased as punch
That your little ugly bunch
Can bring more hardship to us all
By heart so cold, by mind so small
By blackmail and by outright lie
To those who you know will comply
Because of all the hate they hold
Hate that keeps them in your fold
Hate you count on to burn bright
As you drag us into night
From which you hope there’s no return
Until the crosses once more burn
Be they real or figurative
For there’s no way you can live
In a country who’d elect a man
Whose skin is black – or even tan
And so I say once more to you
Go fuck yourselves you motley crew
Of cretins, morons, hicks and rubes
Thieves and liars, oafs and boobs
All around you there’s the whiff
Of death as you march towards the cliff
And as you tumble Lemming-like
To your demise a match will strike
And then one more, and then, and then
The light will shine for all again
For you’ll be gone altho’ your smell
Will linger – as you burn in hell

I bow to your excellence! I am enthralled by your wonderous ode, had I tried I would not have been able to do this instead I would have only sputtered my fury. My gratitude for this expression of disdain towards those who would bring us all down, it overflows.
thanks Val, i deeply appreciate the kind words. continue…
Bravo! Standing O!
i thank you so much PT – i really appreciate it. continue…
So much hatred towards “Obamacare”–I’m pretty sure it’ll be reasonably screwed-up, since the government is involved, but it’s an honest attempt at an improvement in health insurance, so I say bring it on. What the haters don’t seem to take into account is that our current Medicaid, Medicare, and higher costs of those of us “lucky enough to be insured” (I robbed $3500 out of my retirement this year for one surgery because my Fortune 500-company-sponsored insurance has a $4K yearly out-of-pocket max, instead of the old $2K) are ALREADY costing every taxpayer gobs of money, because the only care the uninsured can get is expensive emergency room care, or care “written off” by hospitals and clinics (and transferred into everyone else’s costs). So the gist of this long comment is that I think the folks, the ones who don’t think the poor deserve health care?–they’ll be saving money in the long run with “Obamacare”, because some of the “undeserving” will be able to help pay their own way. Time will tell.
Great poem, by the way.
thanks for the insightful comment TT. re; Medicare – from my experience as a recipient it is a gov program that really works. re the poem – thanks again, tho’ it just got a little better -added 2 more couplets. continue…
(Medicare is a good thing) As for the new couplets, in the inestimable words of my ex-brother-in-law, “Right On!”
thanks again TTD, write on. continue…

For real!! Stock up and visit the Wombie cartoon strip.
btw: will never drive a car again because of the permanent paralysis in both feet and portions of knee joints, but, the amusement factor of shuffling down the street, looking as if on peg legs and shuffling has given me a new Silly Walk! The Zombie Pirate Boogie!
There is humor in everything -wicked smile-
keep your pecker up. easy for me to say i know…but it sounds like your sense of the absurdity of it all is still intact. i shall continue to talk to the universe on your behalf. xo continue…
Wow ! Wooo ! Delicious.

It truly shows how bigoted the right wingers and Tea Party assholes really are.They should all be put on a barge, and sent out to a stormy sea, without life preservers and rafts… Sick fuckers. They should be ashamed of themselves…
except they do not have the gene for shame. thanks for the comment Don. continue…
