Rotary phones dialed in. Black

Bakelike receivers

Light up like the red-hot

 

Bat-phone on a mischievous Gotham

Night. “Whom will you

 

Vote for this primary season?”

Who can you trust

When super-pacs and

 

Big Macs run our country

Through attack ads

And fast food commercials?

 

The big lie alluded

Us all. Now,  most are

Too lazy to deconstruct

 

The less than airtight alibis

Of the accused.

 

This is Poem #8 from the  Poem (almost) Everyday Project. These are second drafts of  pieces copied directly from my journal with minimal editing from their “vomit draft” state. Feel free to give useful critique.

The following quotes are scribbled, one horizontally, in my notebook: “Your number’s been disconnected” and “Let me just tase the part of my brain that understands sentence structure.” ~Stephen Colbert
