Machine Guns & Zygotes


Right wing fury
Drowning out reason
And science

Edging out compassion
Making light
Of lives lost

In battles planned
In dark boardrooms
Out of reach of bombs

Ramming down
A mythical
White man

Into the throats
Of broken women
To kill their voices

Shouting: bootstraps!
Freedoms! Zygotes
Are sacred!

Death to the Muslims
And the gays and
Those uppity females

Who don't know
Their places amidst
Our machine-guns.

  1. I don't always agree with all the demands women make, but I am a fweminist and a liberal and I will fight for the human cause with my bare fists. No conservative male chauvenist, right wing christian is going to tell me what I can and can not do. Thank you for this poem.

  2. Superb WWW! It's all there, in so few words, eloquently combined.

Some of you are having trouble, I've removed captcha and verification so we'll see how that goes. My apologies. Blogger is putting up far too many roadblocks. Thanks for the emails alerting me.
