We, who possess keener wits than nits possess, throw not epic fits

confident that diarrheal maladies can be transformed to proper shits

& assured that surgeons will amputate exclusively agreed-upon bits

Afraid I've always been of bodies on V.W. frames ordered from kits

Mortified I appear to a woman who cares not where her fat ass sits

Upon the breakfast plate what wriggles & squirms surely ain't grits

Today I pray that I'll never be “lesbianized” in a lezzy's lezzy mitts

As I've no real preference for purple, pink, brown, or bloodshot tits

The Last Man on Earth consigned dead zombies to local, fiery pits

When transacting business with lesbians one must retain one's wits

Of course the same holds true for muff-divers, drag queens & flits

Poet's Notes about The Poem

U.S. soldiers are occupying & waging war in Iraq, Afghanistan, Libya, Pakistan, Yemen & God knows where else. No declarations of war have been made as prescribed by the United States Constitution. ALL participants are guilty of treason. The 'I-was-just-following-orders' defense didn't work at the Nuremberg show-trials of 1946-7 and it won't work now. U.S. commanders have routinely violated the Yamashita/Medina Standard in regards to hierarchical accountability in cases of war crimes.

Poem of the Day

poet Dante Gabriel Rossetti

Young Love lies sleeping
In May-time of the year,
Among the lilies,
Lapped in the tender light:
White lambs come grazing,
White doves come building there:
