And they’d start a civil war on a whim.
Their warped fixation
On a white Christian nation
Makes America’s future look grim.

A Malignant Tumor

by Joel Kravitz

malignant tumor

The Malignant Cruelty of Donald Trump

A two-word combination that unleashes fear –
Words no one ever wants to hear.
As a diagnosis or metaphor,
Those two words say there’s pain and suffering in store.
When the metaphor describes a politician
Who would turn the White House into Perdition,
Seeking to harm Americans for personal gain
And destroy Democracy under his reign
With the authoritarian power he tried to seize….
It’s an understatement to say Trump is a disease

An “If I Had A Dollar Every Time..” Limerick

by Joel Kravitz

if-i-had-a-dollar-for-every-time.

We all know and have used that expression about the recurrence of things that seem to find their way into our lives. Mostly, insignificant things in the big picture, but things that happen enough times that we think that we would have accumulated a small fortune had we been remunerated every time they happened.

A Pain In The Ass Limerick

by Joel Kravitz

roids (2)

I saw this poetry contest – https://painpoemprize.com – and I could not resist after I saw the mission statement – The conception and goal of Pain/Poem/Prize is to wed lyrical verse to wit and levity, poetry to playfulness, as a purposeful remedy for the dis-ease of our mortal human condition. Wit and self-effacing humor are a must!
 
That said, I knew I had something that was dead solid perfect for this contest

Anti-Vaxxer Insurrectionists

This problem is not going away and, sadly, the pandemic and Covid Crisis isn’t either until this one does. Our Great Nation is facing a Shakespearean quandary – “To be or Not To Be…Whether to suffer the slings and arrows of pain and suffering at the hands of outrageous anti-vaxxer fools or to stick out our arms and be injected with hope for the future developed by science and proven to be safe and effective?”
