Sacred Cause

Sacred Cause

NATO expansion is a sacred cause.
If you have doubts, then you can go to Hell.
It’s pointless to request that we hit pause:
NATO expansion is a sacred cause,
Obedient to bright, transcendent laws.
Let foolish Fyodor ring his futile bell!
NATO expansion is a sacred cause.
If you have doubts, then you can go to Hell!

Not Very Nice

Not Very Nice

(for Mary Gundling)

Does Mrs. Gundling say I should be nice
To enemies of common decency?
That attitude, I’m sure, would be a vice.

I knock twerps down and kick them more than twice.
Perhaps those standing by might challenge me.
Does Mrs. Gundling say I should be nice?

Noch bleibe ich kaltblutig, veins like ice.
My iron nerves indeed cannot agree.
That attitude, I’m sure, would be a vice.

Like the God Julius, I’ve rolled the dice
And stepped beyond all vile uncertainty.
Does Mrs. Gundling say I should be nice

Instead? Warm, soft, and bloodless – like white rice?
Before the idols must I take a knee?
That attitude, I’m sure, would be a vice

For which I would be punished in a thrice.
Counsel instead those targeted to flee!
Does Mrs. Gundling say I should be nice?
That attitude, I’m sure, would be a vice.

Idolater’s Weekly

Idolater’s Weekly

At Sidney’s Catholic Weekly, they adore
Unsightly blobs that fake vain Catholic gab
While keeping only ignorance in store.
At Sidney’s Catholic Weekly, they adore
What every faithful Christian should abhor.
It’s possible they can’t see past the flab
At Sidney’s Catholic Weekly. They adore
Unsightly blobs that fake vain Catholic gab!

A Brand New New Orleans

A Brand New New Orleans

(for the Rev. Larry Beane)

In New Orleans, the Rebel cause is done.
They rush to worship Zulu idols now.
You Western Civ types shouldn’t have a cow.
Idolatry is popular and fun!
In former European times, the Sun
Was worshipped – as historians allow.
So why can’t our society kowtow
To savage whores? Your reasons given? None!
Let spiritual license now extend
Into the region of the Southern Cross!
Monotheistic claptrap had to end.
We douse our cities now in heathen sauce.
Crudity is the message we intend.
The Christian heroes of the South? No loss.

Model Rebel

A Model Rebel

To fashionable idols he kowtows,
Insisting he’s a model rebel still.
He goes for bestial sex with sacred cows.
To fashionable idols he kowtows.
Before their hierophants he boldly bows.
If toady looks could kill, then his would kill.
To fashionable idols he kowtows,
Insisting he’s a model rebel still.

All Hail

All Hail

Bow down before the Sacred Vaccination!
You’ll feel a whole lot better when you do.
Science demands complete capitulation,
And Pope Bergoglio joins the chorus, too.
You’re nothing but an old discarded shoe
Until you’re vaccinated with the crowd
Against the bug that ought to frighten you.
Submission you must now proclaim out loud!
Once you are vaccinated, you’ll be proud
With the pride of the body snatcher horde.
Come on, man! What’s your problem? We’ve all bowed
And hailed the vaccination as our lord.
Your daft dissent will not long be permitted.
Against it an expanding force is pitted.

Polytheists

Polytheists

We loved the Mask, converted to the Shot,
And now with joy adore the Mask anew.
Is our religion fixed in stone? It’s not.
We loved the Mask, converted to the Shot,
And mean to worship finally a lot
Of different gods. We’ll make you worship, too.
We loved the Mask, converted to the Shot,
And now with joy adore the Mask anew.

Acolyte

The Acolyte

 
Incredibly, Shea has his acolytes.
Amongst these is the twerp Scott Eric Alt.
With all his soul, he labors to exalt
Obese Mark Shea to superhuman heights.
This altitude, according to Alt’s lights,
Is right and proper. Shea is free from fault.
If you presume to question, Alt shouts: “Halt!
Moist dreams of Shea’s perfection fill my nights!”
With all his soul, I said – and that is true.
But Alt’s applying all his strength as well.
Given Shea’s idol status, Alt can do
No less: he’s under Shea’s Svengali spell.
To budge Shea’s weight, though, Alt would need a crew
Of heroes – so his master sinks to Hell.

Grandpa Nutso

Grandpa Nutso

 
Poor little kids! Is Grandpa Nutso reading
Aloud to you? And are you forced to sit
And listen to his crap? My ears are bleeding
Vast rivers as I merely think of it!
He has a sissy voice – not just a bit
Of one. His sibilants confound the genders.
And on his form obesity is writ:
He’d burst the longest, stretchiest suspenders.
Where other grandpas go on whiskey benders,
This one is infantile and steals your milk.
If there are gods of gluttony, he renders
Pansified adoration to their ilk.
He’s reading George MacDonald, kids. Hang tough:
At least it’s not his own disgusting stuff!

Gaia’s Cultic Wisdom

Gaia’s Cultic Wisdom

 
Pope Francis is the type who worships science—
Or was until he made his latest dumb
Pronouncement. Now he’s total in reliance
On Gaia’s cultic wisdom. Me, I’m numb
At how this aging infant sucks his thumb
In public and proclaims stupidity
As doctrine. Can’t he do the minimum
In self-embarrassment – for you and me?
The idiocy uttered currently,
Of course, will fade eventually away.
He can’t get saints and angels to agree
With the vain salivation of today.
Still, he’s amongst my soul’s most gnawing stressors.
What’s worse, he’s undermining his successors.
