Crawling contradictions…

by BAR poet-in-residence Raymond Nat Turner

 

Sunday he’s singing,

“Share Your Pain” like Pat

Boone covering a Little

Richard classic with

Mock liturgical tone

 

Tuesday he’s ordering

Takeout in Michael

Coreleone cadence,

Delivering “Tuesday Heartbreak”

By Hellfire Missile

 

Sunday he’s shouting

Out names of loved ones,

Consoling grieving families

 

Tuesday he’s renaming

Children “Collateral Damage,”

Reducing family trees to charcoal

 

Sunday he’s condemning

The coward who killed

Innocent Americans

Making Love Boats for

Boys’ and girls’ bathtubs

 

Tuesday he’s pinning

Cheap Chinese-made medals

On hollow chests of

Cowards at consoles—

Crawling contradictions—

From Shmuck Cheney or

Alte kaker McCain—

Mule-heads might be marching!
