In writing Free Verse Speech, I am sometimes right, but often left to be wrong. It is in open minds that one finds the Truth that life is never absolute.

In this I use prominent names in that they are examples in what is right and what is left to be wrong in America.

Do I fear Free Speech? I do, but in times were Conservative shades put the blinders on, it is time to let the Liberal sunshine in to clear the mortician's air.

Economic Welfare Of 100 Percent Of America


Blank eyes stare hollowed out barren in forlorn resignation.

Lost bits and pieces scatter memories tattered and torn - cast

Abstractions in contradictions, gravitate heavy and overcast

Winding knots twist uptight to bear taunt tears of desperation.


Shadows weep weathered, wrinkled within deep depression,

Emotions being distraught bare homeless Veteran Vietnam scars,

Wearing battlefronts in living suicide struggle of everyday hazards,

Where being homeless, one prays to God, to scrape faith’s accession.


They stay out of view of Conservative pillars of pure righteousness,

Where Christian city’s demand churches quit feeding the poor.

Outreach Medicare welfare programs for Social Security poverty

Judged unconstitutional being denied food stamp contagiousness.


Tramps transients, do not have any Rights, nor any Civil Liberties,

They do not own property to claim American Citizenship in a Republic,

Being treated as homeless illegal’s being deported to Northern public

Assistance cycles, where winter wears frost bite compassion of antipoverty.


Feels Bain’s private equity in Romney dehumanizing our working force

That Koch ALEC deconstruction of God Bless Made in America’s heart.

Where we outsource our Blue Collar family values for reality heartthrobs

In Kardashians with Palin Country Club looks of White Collar workforces.


Do the Tiger faces like Romney, Gingrich, Santorum, and even Obama,

Even acknowledge the other half of the 90% in their economic plight

That Conglomerate welfare for Big Oil is worth a Congressional fight

But welfare of inner cities meets Norquist pledges against any Obama-care.


That the President can compare having a child like Trayvon Martin,

Political reasons to visit the other side of America, to obtain MLK roots,

Is like his Democratic Blue Collar rooted birth certificate in that acute

Understanding that burnt the bridges in Liberal supporter’s parting.


I still see the President as the best worst option, but he is no Nobel Prize,

That the homeless are still denied Federal and State public help assistance.

The Island of Washington politicians act as economic mortician pestilence

That 25% of the 90%, never see their elected official neighborhood advisors.


Brand Name ALEC public elected officials become members of Koch Think Tanks,

Whose corporate campaign treasure chests are the fortunes of the fortunate 500.

America’s BBBB Murdoch Prime minister example in political stable funding.

The Cain and Abel in Bain private equity dissecting America wham bam thanks.


God in Obama-Care can America hug our homeless Veterans?

Can Palin find it in her heart to visit our inner cities as a Christian?

“In who came to dinner” can Washington find 100% of America?

We are not this gold brand name Tide.

We are generic.

Big Oil does not intimidate us,

But it sure tries to bankrupt us.

ALEC Norquist pledges to the 1%,

But the only Pledge of Allegiance

Is to the economic welfare of 100% of America.

This is way potentially over my head. I am sure unusually well read people can follow it, but is more than the office politics I am used to at the water cooler.
