#BlaPoWriMo – politics as usual

Loved this! ❤


deep in the belly of the whale
a new machinery of governance,
an infrastructure is coalescing –
out of sight and out of mind –
the promised one might just be
in for a surprise by southerners
feeling the bern, sly as a fox,
ready to go the distance
of the bruising battles to come –
grey never fades – the same while
the machinery measures its new
strength, deciding once and for all
if it wants to be network anesthesia
or the herald of a brave new world.

I normally don’t reward bad behavior, but Bryan was a wolverine tonight, shredding my father-in-law’s prejudice tongue with the steel blade of his words in defense of his new friend, Ahmed.

“Kiss my ass, Grandpa!”

We took him to Ben and Jerry’s.
