Doing Nothing

While political folks dilly dally
Job growth winds down a deep valley

Flouting the Clout

So self-immersed with political clout

You've broken our trust as you strut and flout

     Pork barrels take precedence

     Over need and common sense

Treat us like subjects and we'll vote you out!

Roast A Ghost

Roast A Ghost

Trump always likes to brag and boast;
At dinner event he did become a ghost
Has no bright bean;
Creates such a scene,
And his very own affair he had to host.

current presidential campaign

The current presidential campaign seems asinine 
For both candidates if elected promise all will be fine
Each runs down the other
Thus pertinent policy never given gesture
As we the people sip their political strychnine

who will be calling the shots

It’s a swill no one interrupts— 
A pill that consumes and corrupts 
Our honor's been jailed
And truth’s will is impaled
As the blood PAC tempest erupts

Author's note: Many of the super-rich (who do not yet have it all) are determined to have more of the pie since their multiple residences and bank accounts are not enough and their yachts and jets are too small and range restricted (OMG) There are about 600 people who have donated more than $1,000,000 to presidential political action committees (PACs) The very rich, who also are trying to buy Congress, are in the process of remodeling our society They liked it when society was feudal--when the rest of us were consigned to serfdom or were slaves This weekend, the Koch brothers are interviewing candidates to see who they will spend almost a billion dollars to elect Are we to believe their propaganda (that they have our interest in mind)?  That is why I support the only candidate who does not have a super PAC who is running for President--Bernie Sanders Enough is enough and maybe, just maybe, we can prevail over the corruption of wealth The truth always matters and can never be denied over the long term.

Taxing Dilemma

Rich ones get richer from our wages.
Middle man paid with too many pages.
We continue on path.
Hiding outrageous wrath,
Revolved in political stages,

Taxes, taxes, what will be the due.
Deductions, exemptions for a few,
All my money they have kept.
Deducting tears I wept.
Tax man arrived claimed all of them too.

The poor keeps getting poorer each year.
They cannot wait for rebate, they cheer.
Sell off, early rebate.
Federal and the state,
Money now, money, for wine and beer,

Written for

Debate's a Political Forum

Debate's a Political Forum
By Franklin Price

Debate's a political forum
Candidates all try to floor 'em
Say what the others will do
How it's you they will screw
And they do it without much decorum

If you ever see one who will say
What it is they have done to this day
What it is they will do
If elected by you
Stay awake and don't faint dead away

Although this may be just a ruse
You've got nothing much left to lose
Give this person your vote
Hope this one's not a goat
Hope their nose doesn't grow as you choose

Armageddon over Gentile U.S.of A

As I was driving to work early morn
The Police and Fire fighters were cleaning their horn
in Preparation of a Certain Alert
Evacuation exercises while the Hunks take off their shirt
DUCK AND COVER:The Best of DVD has hit the store
To take you back to the MISSILE CRISIS before
You and Sally will be laughing on the floor
And then..MR CLEAN will wipe the debris off the door
Crime will heed to the Political greed
Mother Nature won't be bothered indeed
The "after-effects" will fade after a few million decade
Deorderent of choice:a Few billion cannisters of RAID
Momma is upset at the current STAGE 2 alert
She didn't have a chance to get ready for work
papa is filling his gut with morning beer
He knows it is wise to drink up while it's here
Turning to the Sports section just one final time
and then the BIG BANG as the Desperatos cross the Line
The children's corpses are still on their bed
Radioactive creepy crawlers have taken them by the head
Mayhem ensues
No more Katie Curic and the 6:30 evening news
Before I die,of Certainty this night..
One last Hurrah
to Hear Eric Clapton play the blues!

Foregone Icon

Gave all his speeches with boots on

Rob Ford

There was a man named Rob Ford,
He ran Etobicoke Ward.
Now that he’s mayor,
He still can’t play fair,
Waging a political war.

Our whole fortune’s fee cannot pay,
For those pills you’ve put away.
Weight loss is a scam,
Your scale’s in a jam.
Just leave your office, okay?

Buses rarely have delays,
Just give Karen Stintz her way.
Underground is bad,
Makes us riders mad.
Just leave your office today!

“No bike lanes on roads!” you vow.
Same-sex marriage you’ll disallow.
Those rules you conceive,
Make you seem naïve.
Just leave your officeRight now!
Your platform promises more.
“Cut taxes!” “Build homes!” you swore.
Your dreams are unreal,
Your plans not ideal.
Come now, I’ll show you the door.

Hey readers, could you please let me know if you find this poem to be too offensive/what lines are particularly harsh in the comments below? Thanks!

"Useless Sources, Political Fleas, Stench Isn't Cheese"

“Useless Source”

I know some men called, big shots,
Who are filled with much bull snot.
Be careful of it’s use,
For of it there is no spruce.
A men of substance, but no real plot!

“Political Fleas”

Most all of strife’s parasitic forces,
Most always found driving their Porsches.
Poor seen of lesser degree,
Haven’t a pot to pea.
For common good vote out useless sources.

“Stench Isn’t Cheese”

Useless sources, political fleas,
Men of means, pass the bailout please.
Poor have given it their all,
As Uncle Sam called
The stench on the hill, is not cheese.

desert eyes

I wandered the desert in awe
of all the wonders I saw.
But when I stopped to pee,
who was watching me?
(I’m quite sure I heard a guffaw).

Cameras everywhere, eyes in the sky,
Border Patrol, DEA, playing I-SPY,
Made me shiver
I gave a quiver
and shook my slow-draining guy.

Heaven forbid I should fart!
(to me a true work of art)
They’d probably arrest me
and surely sequest me
Authorities must play their part!

Off to the jailhouse I’d go
Me and my weewee so slow
An old desert rat
and a damn silly hat
paraded like crim’nals on show.

For a few bucks they’d set me free.
No law against taking a pee.
They’ve big fish to fry
like those who still try
to escape by hiding in tree.

Send those Mexicans home!
(and all the others who roam)
Build a wall
make it tall
and put ‘em in jail if they POEM!

It’s not my political bent
but everywhere I went
I surely saw
the long-armed law
but they don’t make a dent

In the flow of drugs
or illegal bugs.
Anyone need some hugs?

on the origins of the species politica nonsensica

One day the son said to God,
“Humans need a laugh squad.”
“Say what son?”
“You mean fun?”
“Wouldn’t that seem a bit odd?”

“No Dad, I think it’d be cool,”
“Maybe even laughter in school!”
He’s sounding coy,
the silly boy,
thought God, Am I a sour old fool?

Then he remembered the rip
in poor Job’s small ill-fated ship
The sound, like split britches
had them laughing in stitches.
Thought God, “When did my humor get stripped?

God pondered and stroked his long beard.
Cherubs and seraphims peered,
though mystified,
they deified.
Downstairs, the outcast one sneered.

“Tell you what son, let’s give ‘em politics.”
“It’s way more fun than sinking small ships.”
So the laughing squads 
(two teams at odds),
were loosed on the masses with tricks.

Which, coincidently, was fine
with the one who’d crossed the line,
became the hub
for political slime in prime time.

President Macron and the Bobos

France is now ruled by Macroniens,
A species of urban boboniens,
Passably bright,
Not too far Right,
But perhaps just the latest d….d phonyens.

To keep France in order, the PoF
Must avoid moves might put them off :
An appeal to the Centre
Is a smart way to enter,
But too motley his triumph to bring off.

Credit, and how ! where credit is due,
Macron’s talent is rivalled by few.
He’s redrawn for the times
The political lines,
Like Bonaparte, de Gaulle and their crew.

His hold on power is complete,
Jupiter with cast hyper-elite.
No proles are in sight,
Now that can’t be right,
They may come to think he’s a cheat.

This Could Be Washington's View

This could be Washington's View
Only slightly tongue in cheek
By Franklin Price

This could be Washington's view
They've nothing better to do
Get Trump quickly out
They stamp and they shout
He's not here for me or for you

He's here for the country we bleed
For sure not the money we need
He has billions and more
Needs no riches to score
Doesn't need our political creed 

The creed is not written this way
But  is how it is practiced today
If in congress I sit
I am a half wit
If I don't leave richer I say

Trump's here a lesson to teach
What he promised does not plan to breach
He has stepped on our toes
And our out of joint nose
We're finding a way to impeach

You're a fool if you don't see he lies
To the congress you seem to despise
We care so much for you
All America too
That thought crossed our fingers not eyes

Can't you see he's an egotist man
Foolishly doing all that he can
Makes  his own self look bad
We're exceedingly glad
His own fires continues to fan

Can't wait 'til he burns himself down
And on a rail he rides out of town
When we help him along
We seem to do it all wrong
And you laugh at the bumbling clowns

None of us knows what to do
Not Trump, not Congress, not you
Who caused all this mess?
All of us I would guess
Can't resist as we tighten the screw

If we don't quickly come to our senses
Work together to raise our defenses
Russia won't be the big threat
If we fall further yet
Haiti could conquer our fences

Behavior Hs Been Known

Behavior has been know to be explosive;
Hair seems shiny result of being corrosive;
Bad behavior abundant,

Only knows how to take and never give.

In cookie jar many times hands were caught,
And tricks of trade;
All of them played;

Write weird poem which me did out do;
Started driving superb,
Then crashed into curb;

Hillary Clinton

Hillary Clinton

MrsClinton, First Lady, became
well-known fem of political fame;
   special policies made
   and with Whitewater, played
that long, fact-finding, criminal game.

Later she became Senator, won
New York State in two-thousand and one.
    Sponsored new bills galore,
    Total passed...numbered four
during two terms before she was done.

Secretary of State her next move.
Tried to help ties with nations improve
   She attracted the news
   which would sometimes confuse...
disapprove, turn around, then approve.

Like, ambassador killed...much at stake;
everywhere was announced this newsbreak.
   But Benghazi assault
   was judged not by her fault,
"for what difference now does it make?"

Quite politically savvy was she
backed up big with support...was to be
     voted in President
     but more votes, counted, went
to elect her proclaimed enemy.

Some insist, missing emails to blame;
that her server was wiped, what a shame.
   But done just "with a cloth"
   she declared by her troth,
so her innocence, we must proclaim!

Now, one thing that she did very well...
she stood up for her man through that hell
   of Lewinsky's blue dress,
   as he did so confess...
more worth staying than bidding farewell.

Where is the Next USA
 Wasn't it good one day

  Now I see historical correlation
  To the once great Roman nation

   Nero fiddle while Rome burned
   Trump tweets while the world turned

   His eternal affliction with a wall
   Ill-conceived tariffs markets fall

    Foreign Allies cast aside
    Political foes and friends he deride

    Corporation given Card Blanch to pollute
    Friend invited to the treasury lute 

     Administration under many illicit clouds
     Payments and collusion under shrouds 

     Taxes increased in local and state
      Gun fire the police come late

     Trump called Africa a  hole
     The red states are on the doll

      Everyday my mind tells me its time to go
      History repeats I've seen this show
