Forbidden Lectures

Forbidden Lectures

Rush Limbaugh shouldn’t lecture Mayor Pete
While Mayor Pete is preaching to us all.
Let right-wing talk freaks feel our leftist heat!
Rush Limbaugh shouldn’t lecture Mayor Pete—
Whose gay-assed Christian virtue is complete
Beyond the point of troglodyte recall.
Rush Limbaugh shouldn’t lecture Mayor Pete
While Mayor Pete is preaching to us all.

Saurian Lecturer

The Saurian Lecturer

 

Pretending he has wisdom to impart,
He lectures from his well of ignorance.
Bamboozled by his rep, his audience
Accepts this mindless babbling as high art.
They love the odor of his oral fart.
His scattered spittle they call Heaven’s rinse.
Believe me: they are not hard to convince.
He has these poor souls drooling from the start.
You seek to disabuse the crowd in vain.
They’re lost from nasal hairs to fingertips.
About his emptiness, they won’t complain,
Though they’d be better off if his huge lips
Were governed not by his deficient brain
But by the ganglion that rules his hips.

Mr. Wisdom

Mr. Wisdom

 

 

 

 

 

 

Is Mr. Wisdom set to lecture me?

I’ll have him know I am not listening.

Is my enrollment, people, bound to be?

Is Mr. Wisdom set to lecture me?

Am I the target of sagacity?

Is my discipleship a certain thing?

Is Mr. Wisdom set to lecture me?

I’ll have him know I am not listening.

A Lot to Say

A Lot to Say

 

 

 

 

He said he had a lot to say.

That’s when we tuned serenely out.

He had vast insights to convey,

He said.  (He had a lot to say.)

His promise didn’t cause dismay

In us – or even nagging doubt.

He said he had a lot to say.

That’s when we tuned serenely out.
