Pithy white lies

and pretty pink thongs

both stretch imagination’s fabric.

Senator, governor,

or tramp stamped whore.

The same tune reigns.

 

A male crack whore

in Colorado. A mega-church failure

on pay-per view. A pedophile

in clerical collar.

The same tune reigns.

 

Stargazers and field grazers

pew sitters and steeple chasers

little lambs and the silent damned,

the sickness lives in idle hands…

And nothing changes as they complain-

And sing their songs in blind refrain-

They bitch and pout, but it’s all the same.

The same tune reigns.

Yes, the same sad song sung from different faces
in different places.
Your words are so true,
thank you poet!
Nicely done.

I HAVE TO AGREE WITH YOUR STATEMENT TO A POINT BECAUSE SIN IS SIN...WRONG IS WRONG - NO MATTER FROM WHAT DIRECTION IT COMES BUT...WE HAVE TO BE CAREFUL AND NOT JUDGE 'ALL' BY THE ACTIONS OF A FEW. WELL WRITTEN WITH STRONG PHRASES THAT DRAWS VERY CLEAR IMAGERY. THANKS FOR SHARING AND GOD BLESS. JOYCE * HIS INSPIRATIONS

an outstanding write Lorie
reality at its best
and in between a little hell and brimstone
Preching, keeps all hypocrites in place

Love & Peace be with you

What outstanding messages you construct in your poem, Lori.
And as history repeats itself, "the same tune reigns."

Loved it! There is unfortunately so much truth in your words. Hard realizations that we are not evolving as human beings at all, are we? You've certainly summed up the path humanity has taken and continues to take.

That epistrophe "The same tune reigns" is resonating with the rest of the poem. I liked the way you concatenated diverse images and recreated the vicissitudes surrounding us.

Thought you were writing about my poetry. ;-) The old, "Devil in me," syndrome is alive and well. It's the media's fault. These faults, most probably in much greater number, have always existed, it's just that our technology enables them to come to us instantly, often without screening for truth or accuracy. New technology enables us to right old wrongs and search out wrong as rapidly as the perps find new ways to exploit.

Lori your protest poems open eyes and minds and remind us of things for too many years swept under carpets to protect the guilty...and silently punish the innocent.

And nothing changes as they complain-

Same sh**, different day. It is a shame that we continue to elect, support and make excuses for these criminals. Perhaps one day, we will rub the haze of apathy from our eyes and recall that this country is supposed to be "of, by and for the people." Nice work, Lori.
Take care,
Sherry

Lori,
Excellent poem from start to finish with a powerful, committed voice. The third and final stanza really lets rip, the energy and rhythms bounce off the page. Kudos!

You know I have no problem with anything put forward here. Damn, can we all get just a little bit angry like this ALL THE TIME PLEASE!!!!!
Congress is back in session this week and the b/s will fly fast and furious. Watch how they hype Swine Flu for ultimate scare tactics (do not take these vaccines, ever!!!)and then ram through all the crap that people were bitterly opposed to during their plushy holidays amongst the serfs. Now you got me started....good, healthy rant Lori!!

With Jerry on this one, Lori: throw 'em all out. No wonder people hate government, no wonder people question God ... with "friends" like this, who needs enemies? Well said.
