A Thousand Words

This Ferguson photograph that
I've just seen
Is America's Christmas card
For 2014.


Thoughts After Watching St. Louis County Prosecutor Bob McCulloch's Endless News Conference

The truth is simple and needs few words
But there’s no denying
That anyone who goes on and on and on
Is --- as a rule --- lying.

Iconic British Entertainer Jimmy Saville Sexually Abused At Least 450 People

“Mr. Cosby --- I’m talking to you from
Out here in the great beyond.
I wish that I could make your troubles
Vanish with some magic wand.

Nonetheless, I’m sorry to report I can’t
And even at the risk of being rude
I must point out you are at this moment
Colossally & massively screwed.

I have no problem with drugging people.
It’s just a matter of course
For guys like us. Unlike you, however,
I usually just used force.

The thing that has you feeling like you
Were stabbed with a knife, I’m
Afraid was the error of letting yourself
Be found out in your lifetime.

Didn’t you get the celebrity memo
That contained the exit plan?
It’s always best to be six feet under
When the shit hits the fan.”

Bill Cosby Often Met Aspiring Young Actresses Through His William Morris Representatives

As the besieged star’s career remains
Sadly limping, what barges
In is the thought that his agents should
Be up on pimping charges.

NPR 1, Dr. Huxtable 0

When Scott Simon got in Cosby's face
I regarded this as a chance
For Bill to know how it feels to deal
With an unwanted advance.

The Lesson Regarding A Triple Murderer Who’s On A Hunger Strike To Protest Not Receiving Kosher Meals

If towards a life of crime you find
Yourself beginning to teeter
Don’t do it if you’re already aware
That you’re a fussy eater.

The Most Honest Republican In America Weighs In On The Midterm Elections

“Anthony from San Diego” called a C-SPAN show.
The impact couldn’t have been bigger
And he boldly announced, “This is about race ---
The Republicans hate that nigger … ”

This is what they say behind closed doors:
Perhaps he (without a care craves)
To speak from his heart these dark thoughts
And then share them on the airwaves.

The right wing winds that are now blowing
Aren’t warm but rather glacial
And Anthony helps put the lie to their meme
That America’s now post-racial.

For Republicans, It’s Like 2010 --- On Steroids

The defeat for both Democrats 
And Obama is immense ---
Let the GOP's inability to govern
And overreaching commence.
