Politic-king
By John Rockie Coppolella
Sunday, March 29, 2015

Rated "G" by the Author.

Inspired by Ed Matlack's poem "I stay in the Middle." Telling a tale of America's woes.

 

 

An Indian penned these lines plumb,

Just before they dropped that bomb,

Shaking the fairy dust off of history,

Blowing them all to kingdom come. 

 

Fried Chicken,
Finger licking,
Higgledy-piggedly,
It was politicking.
 

Who was to blame?
Same old game,
Different faces,
Different names.

Traffic ahead,
Old Jersey Ed,
Chris Christie,
Better off dead.

 
Constitutional grave digging, 
Bush-whacked voter rigging,
American kings we'd be picking,
The Orwellian animals jigging.
 
 

Faith of our Fathers,
This was not religion,
Shame on Uncle Sam's,
Flag-wavering polticians.
 

 

So, our story has to come to an end,

The halos were short-lived and bent,

An odd angle at the end of our tale,

The only good part was The End.

You packed a lot into this poem. Much more than Jersey Ed was said. Great satire. Loved every word of it.
