Obama's Tent City

Nothing says lezzy black history month like a charbroiled sent titty

a swat on the ass, a boot to the groin & a ticket to Obama's tent city

I pay for nothing as I'm kept by a beauty queen who cries rent pity

My kitten walks sideways as she's not straight the poorly-bent kitty

Not a borrower nor lender be when your old woman is a lent bitty

A scratch across the back suffices in lieu of a chromatic dent shitty

Poet's Notes about The Poem

Because my selfish, old mother refuses to grant me power-of-attorney, sign over the house and move into a nursing home, I've decided to secretly put a gun into her purse on the way to the airport. [There's aunt Marge in her pantyhose! ]

    Woah ranting poem. Seems to be poetically cussing at dirty politics and social relations.

    Richard...You have made me to smile and then laugh, after reading the poet's notes, which reminded me one of my cousins who stole 100K rupees (around US 2000) from his mother and ran to Goa to have the Beach party, while the mother was crying in vain Thank you for sharing.... (Report) Reply
