Talk talk Christ talk from the mouth-piece of a governing criminal
Through mishmashes of magnetical-electrical messages subliminal
I get & contracted it, I Lucy to the maximal & Ethel to the minimal
Harlots might implement charging structures structured as nominal
Formalized relationships related in form might degrade to informal
Up a side shipwise & down below another into whole port or portal
I may guffaw, titter, snigger, chuckle, giggle, hotly vomit & chortle
as I prey upon the unrighteous as I am in tune with what the Lord'll
do in His thousand-year reign to make up for a 10-century shortfall

Poet's Notes about The Poem
Procommenter's Q U A C K W A T C H
Sherwin Nuland was born Shepsel Ber Nudelman in The Bronx, New York City, in December 1930 to immigrant Russian Jewish parents Meyer and Vitsche Nudelman. Although raised in a traditional Orthodox Jewish home, he came to consider himself agnostic, but continued to attend synagogue.
Nuland was a graduate of The Bronx High School of Science, New York University and Yale School of Medicine, where he obtained his M.D. degree and also completed a residency in surgery. At the time of his death, he was living in Connecticut with his second wife, Sarah. He had four children, two from each marriage. His daughter Victoria Nuland, a career foreign service officer and the former U.S. ambassador to NATO, has been the spokesperson for the Department of State since 2011.
In a 2001 TED talk, which was released in October 2007, Nuland spoke of his severe depression and obsessive thoughts in the early 1970s, probably caused by his difficult childhood and the dissolution of his first marriage. As drug therapy remained ineffective, a lobotomy was planned, but his treating resident suggested electroshock therapy instead, leading to ultimate recovery] Nuland was also one of the featured lecturers at One Day University.
In 2005, Nuland produced a series of lectures for the Teaching Company on the history of Western medicine titled Doctors: The History of Scientific Medicine Revealed Through Biography.
Nuland died on March 3,2014, at his home in Hamden, Connecticut, of prostate cancer.
