he blwe it

25 years

and a world of ears

to hear

what needs to be heard

from the top down

from their god

for Christ’s sake


what kept him so damn busy

that he couldn‘t find   the time

to lay down the law


to tell men

knock it the hell off


to tell men

quit beating on your wives


to tell men

keep your god-damned hands off your daughters

and all children who ought not suffer

your perversions


no need to hold a fucking press conference

shouting it from his balcony

in his jammies

would have gotten the job done


a five-minute rant

for the media sycophants to eat up

and regurgitate


interrupting our local programming
