Tick Tock,

Drip Drop,

Is gravity running down in time,

Nature’s spring winding down

To hibernated winter,

That frozen place,

Like Obama’s Social Security

In no cost of living becoming

Retirement stationary welfare checks.


Tick Tock,

Drip Drop,

Sitting at home getting “Green”,

With gasoline 50% more,

With Junior Whoppers 50% more,

Seeming to shrink in size,

Especially to those inflated delicious pictures.

With credit card rates doubling,

And Congress Master Class Subprime perks as CEO’s.

The Tide Brand Names costs double from Bush to Obama,

Middle Class Blue Collars slipping fast into dire poverty,

Senate’s billionaire clientele being given tax billions in breaks,

While Congress eliminates social outreach programs.


Tick Tock,

Drip Drop,

White Collar Conservative/Progressive Republican/Democrats

Blaming Liberals for their Subprime political corrupt conditions.

Like Conservative Germany in WWII right wing extreme propaganda.

Conservative 30’s America Communist Red Scare Hollywood Red Letters.

Where Germany and America were the Master Race in ethnic cleansing.

Where hollow caste civilian Judges acted

With Pontius Pilate Patriot Act politics.


Tick Tock,

Drip Drop,

Feel the homeless living suicide of self survival

In Washington Katrina modes,

Republicans that take away money

For anything named Public.

No community centers, libraries, activities, and school programs

Just Reading, Writing, Arithmetic failure in domestic policies.

Money directed instead to BlackWater military Patriot Act programs

Private Equity Firms with secret Politician and wealthy Madoff owners,

Doing the pyramid thing negotiating Golden parachute secret dealings.

Try to find the CEO’s of these firms,

It is like a hide and seek intelligence game

That hides their secret Cheney dealings,

Like Swiss bank account owners, who run them.

That some are taxed in tax shelters as overseas corporations

That are privately owned by Conservative sheltered inheritance.


Tick Tock,

Drip Drop,


Another Microsoft Windows blue screen scream

That reign down daily agony, like global warming floods,

With the computer needing a virus checker

For the virus checker,

With a cookie monster protector,

And that hacked ping phishing,

That on and on:

Tick Tock,

Drip Drop,

Daily data rape penetration

That abuse that tortures in,

Tick Tock,

Drip Drop,

Open Windows Troubles.


Tick Tock,

Drip Drop,

Kind of isolated depressed day

That needs to open real windows to see Apple.

I wonder what happens, when you type Adam and Eve?

That after that first misstep, God sure did screw us,

When he made self-righteous religious Politicians,

Whose wardrobes are about Golden Idol Brand Names.

No wonder Jesus - did not want to go into politics.

Why our Senate is like the temple of Conglomerate aristocracy

That one must bow to their demands,

Being “We the people” elected Pompous Act noxious servants.

Hail Caesar’s Senate as the House of the White Collar Lords.

That Washington does not need this Palin wardrobe Tea Party,

That is integrated, ingrained in a country club Republican select fraternity,

But needs Blue Collar God Bless Made in America inherited dreams.

That the reality show is in our streets

Not camping out vacationing in Hollywood’s Alaska.

I want a reality show with Politicians dealing with American needs

With the them in our Public needy neighborhoods.


Tick Tock,

Drip Drop,

The tears flow,

The mood sinks,

The wallet has shrunk

To frozen Social Security

That Republicans now want

To take away for their bonuses.

Wanting to make Gaza strips.

That life be cloned for wars

That Tick Tock,

Drip Drop,


In having a job

Till you are a hundred and three.

Then Republicans terminating you,

And your Liberal Poetry.

For Free Speech is about Red Scare fear

And Rush Limbaugh and Hannity’s tirades

Of pit bull Right Wing McCarty media shows.

I bet they have Liberal (Arts) wealth

On their luxurious lavish home walls

With Clocks.

Tick Tock,

Drip Drop,

(America’s) Dead (Poets Society).
