the ignited shambles

satellite states redden as Epicures serves
a deep-fried hippopotamus that emits
a foul scent roasting on a spit
a real rustic rucksack potlatch lunch
of tweed tobacco provided by shyster donation hounds
of inflated obstinacy and natural nausea
a moral roll call on a rampage
an aspiration of assimilation to slash strata stances
while impudent lower class exiles oscillate
between the magic sage veneer
of an insincere atoned congress
embodied by Sadducee elephants
and Pharisee donkeys who vote against
hair ties and honey pot pies
but don't oppose the airing of cheesy trailer park porn
while embroiled in an elite eclectic November election
a split decision, a cheap retraction, a comedy of errors
an on air narrative performed by unique ogre candidates
versus jury defying pothead all-stars
based on an empty set of untapped unborn toddlers’
Miranda rights and the murder mystery
of who killed the constitution
the courts or the corporations
waiting
we have to hold our breath
until America turns blue in the face.
