Oh Condescenda
When will it end-a?
Please let us in
on your hidden agenda
A person who came
from noble roots
shouldn’t associate
with snakes in suits

Oh Condescenda
I can’t pretend-a
I don’t understand
So tell me again-da
Is it for“ liberation”
or “WMD’s”
this administration
can do as they please?

Dr. Condescenda
When will it end-a?
You hold an opinion
you can’t defend-a
Why don’t you use your
talent for good?
Persuading these tyrants
to do as they should?

Oh Condescenda
They’re not your friend-a
If you allow them
they’ll use you again-da
Putting a face
of diversity
on to a “good ol’ boy society”

Oh Condeleeza
When will there be peace-a?
Like the smile on the face
of the Mona Lisa
From this road that you travel
you can’t turn back
For it is yourself
that you now attack

Anna, are you asking if madmax is entitled to his opinions?

Of course you are allowed your opinions though?
Let's hope that is not up for questioning!

I missed this somehow earlier in the day, madmax. You do rock! I love the bit at the end about self attack; how very true indeed.

What are we going to do when Condescenda comes to Cali?


Ever so grateful for your presence here, madmax. Your madness is most needed, and I agree, keep 'em coming.

I'm slow - all this time I thought Madmax was a MOM! Now I have to change all my internal reading voices to a deep football playing, beer drinking saleman's voice!!ps: is there a Mrs. Madmax on this board, too?

Conde-sneeza has always been a puzzle to me . . . such a priviledge background - makes me wonder . . .

What is to admire and respect about someone who adamantly supports war and destruction? One can work hard in life and overcome obstacles, but in the end if one misuses her or his talents and blessings and POWER, then what does it all mean? I don't admire Condoleeza Rice. I wish I could.

I believe the poem IS about Bush too. Rice is one of his TOP advisers.

Madmax, I especially like the ending of your poem.

peace,
nappyhair

Yes, there is a Ms. madmax who frequents this board, but she wishes to remain anonymous due to my tendency to push the envelope, and potential damage to relationships that may ensue as it were, per-se, if you will. And my real name is not Max, in case any were wondering, but that too shall remain anonymous.

I was somewhat nervous about this last post, because I was not sure how people would take it. But it seems as though most of you are pretty astute and got my meaning for the most part.

Thanks for putting up with my rants.

Madmax, so many of us cheer your rants and admire your brilliance! Hardly putting up with you, I'd say. More like a fan club.

Stay anonymous. Same with DW. Once that can o' worms is opened, ain't no going back.

I wonder if something like The Daily Show could use your work? I can see it on that type of venue.
