DH & I love your inspirational poetry

Could you link them all?

DH would also like to request some Haikus!

You're the best!

Here ya go!!

Be a true conservative

I have to laugh every time
Republicans spout party lines
They say “Liberals tax and spend
on social programs without end"
and “We must fund our land’s defense”
“Our foreign policy makes good sense”
“Everyone has the right to live”
“To the churches, we should give”
“Family values, -that’s the key”
“A better world for you and me”

While this all sounds exceptionally grand
I’m at a loss to understand
These same ones are the first in line
to fry a man accused of crime
To wave a flag, then drop a bomb
Cut childcare for the single mom
Give tax-cuts to the 1%
while others fight to pay the rent
They barricade 'Planned Parenthood' doors
then cut the wage for working poor
In schools they lobby hard for prayer
then rape the land, pollute the air
Make a record deficit
and blame the Democrats for it

Webster says a “Conservative”
Is “cautious” in the way they live
“One who has a moderate view
in everything they say and do”
“Frugal, temperate, preservative”
-the earmarks of “Conservative”
If this were true, it seems to me
they wouldn’t have a spending spree
Avoiding war at any cost
for fear of life and money lost
They’d put more funding into schools
and give the children all the tools
They’d feed the hungry, heal the ill
instead of finding ways to kill
America would be THE place to live
If they were truly “conservative


If Bill Had Kept His Pants On

If Bill had kept his pants on
Al would be the man
And I’m quite sure
He’d have a better plan
There’d be no talk about hanging chads
“Christianity good, Islam bad”
9-11 would be a number to call
Posted by the telephone
on the kitchen wall
There’d be no recession
No national debt
(-It’s funny how quickly people forget)
Crime would be low
Stocks would be high
The air would be cleaner
In our cities’ sky
Can’t help but wonder what might be going on
If slick little Willie would have kept his pants on


If Bill had kept his pants on
There’d be no attacks
Killing civilians in
the land of Iraq
We’d all be safer
We wouldn’t be shy
To ride in a jet plane
Through the friendly sky
No “axis of evil”
No color alerts
No non-combatants getting hurt
No “homeland security”
No “Patriot Act”
No thoughts about going out
and getting attacked
Can’t help but wonder
What might be going on
If naughty little Billy would have kept his pants on

Hey there Georgie Boy

Hey there
Georgie Boy
There's a little Nazi deep inside
Jack boots are a steppin high'
Its time for the bombs to fly'

Hey there
Georgie Boy
Who gave you all of those deadly toys?
People want to know just why
you want all their kids to die.....

You say a patriot is one that thinks just like you
I'm here to tell you that it's not true
You Idiot

Hey there
Georgie Boy
I wonder what the truth is that you hide
Take away the times you've lied
and silence is all you'll find.....

You say that liberty is something that you'll restore
And you'll make peace by starting a war
You Idiot

Hey there
Georgie Boy
There's a little fascist deep inside
Take away the peoples rights
And oh what a change they'll be
The world will see
A new Georgie Boy




God is on our side

It’s good to know
Wherever we are
Whatever we do
Near or far
Be it war or genocide
We know that God
Is on our side

Children die
In faraway lands
Innocent blood
Is on our hands
No matter the loss
It’s justified
We know that God
Is on our side

We “take what’s ours”
We stand and fight
Knowing “what we do is right”
With hands on our hearts
We beam with pride
Knowing God
Is on our side


We kneel to pray
But never confess
Caring not
for those oppressed
Hatred fueled
Far and wide
But we know God
Is on our side


In a cloak of freedom
We carry a sword
All in the name of
“One true lord”
No matter the cost
No matter how high
We know that God
Is on our side

Oh Condescenda

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”
why this administration
can do as they please?

Dr. Condescenda
When will it end-a
You hold an position
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



Bomb Iowa

I was listening last night to the evening news
and the “Hawks” came out and touted their views
how Syria now was the “global threat”
and “we better act, or we’d soon regret”
But the real threat now, it occurs to me
comes from a place called Sioux City
It’s big and flat, just like Iraq
It borders two states, (-Imagine that!)
It’s a threat to it’s neighbors near and far
And the worst thing is you can get there by car!
They can use that corn to make ethanol
Which we all know is a threat to us all!
Them silos there are just a clever facade
for massive weapons. –Oh my God!
You ain’t foolin’ no one, especially me
Lets drop a big bomb on Sioux City!

Now I know it’s a radical view
But hear me out, and you’ll see it’s true
Them Iowan’s seem like a peaceful bunch
But I got a feeling, I got a hunch
That when nobody’s lookin’ they’re planning attacks
Just like them Islams’ in Iraq
Them cow suits ain’t but a clever disguise
To cover up all them Iowan spies!
I don’t trust em, never will
Those combines could be used to kill
And a pitchfork, -that’s a deadly tool
So listen up, don’t be a fool!
Mark my words, they’re making plans
I’m telling you now, so you’ll understand
You ain’t foolin’ no one, especially me
Lets drop a big bomb on Sioux City!

I Can’t Change Your Mind

We can argue and fight
I can tell you I’m right
Convey all the facts
In a logical light
I can voice my opinion
till the end of all time
But one thing is certain
I can’t change your mind

I can put up a sign
In front of my fence
Begging for justice
and good common sense
And some will concur
And some remain blind
But one thing is certain
I can’t change your mind

We can all scream and yell
Till we’re blue in the face
About all the issues:
Religion to race
The reasons for war
Be they selfish or kind
One thing is certain
I can’t change your mind

I can show you it’s wrong
That it’s unjustified
I can show you the proof
That our leaders have lied
I can list all the facts
In a neat little line
But one thing is certain
I can’t change your mind

I can show you the pictures
I can tell you the cost
Appeal to your sense of
the resources lost
I can show you humanity
gone for all time
But one thing is certain
I can’t change your mind


Operation Iraqi Liberation (or O.I.L.)
A Complete Success!!!



You can say what you want about WMD’s
And all that crap about “making people free”
Tell it to the woman holding her son
who’s screaming and dying from the “war you’ve won”

You can claim that “the world’s now a safer place”
Staring at the camera with a righteous face
Tell it to the man who’s brother is dead
from a “liberating” gunshot wound to the head

You can talk all you want about human aid
And the “great success” of the war you made
Tell the little girl who lost her arm
while you were “avoiding civilian harm”

You can swear up and down “It’s the right thing to do”
“They are really a threat! , I mean it, It’s true!”
Tell the little boy who mourns his mom
who watched her bleed from a clusterbomb

You can say you’re “stopping a terror threat”
and a whole lot of dummies will believe it I bet
But those who are wise, know that it’s just talk
and an all seeing God will not be mocked

Poor Little Ari

Poor Little Ari
So misunderstood
When he tells us lies
it’s for our own good
Giving the news a
political spin
Oh lookout people
he’s lying again


Sad little Ari
What is the truth?
Show me some pictures?
What about proof?
Don’t get so angry
you sad little man
What’s the agenda?
What’s the real plan?

Oh little Ari
Please tell me straight
Show me some evidence
Don’t make me wait
I want to know
What’s the real deal?
No matter how
it might make me feel

Do you know Ari?
The truth that you hide
Did Cheney tell you?
Did Georgie confide?
Are we just too simple?
Too mentally slow?
Please tell me Ari
I want to know

What about Wolfy?
Does he pull the strings?
Does he make you do
all those dishonest things?
Sad little Ari
Poor little chap
Can’t find your butt
if you’re handed a map




Rummy’s War


Rummy was a little man
A very, very little man
A man who cared not for the truth
for love’s caress, the flower of youth
But Rummy had a little plan
To govern over all the land
and hold the keys of life and death
within his tiny little hand

Rummy was an angry man
A very angry, little man
He set up shop on Capital Hill
And thought of ways to steal and kill
These thoughts consumed him day and night
Till one day, when the time was right
America had fallen asleep
Into the Whitehouse he did creep

Rummy was a hateful man
An angry, hateful, little man
But now he knew just what to do
He met a boy called W
Together they held all the keys
To bring a nation to its’ knees
He had the power he did crave
America was now his slave

Rummy was a arrogant man
An angry, hateful, arrogant man
He stood and smiled, as tyrants do
He and the Boy W
Now nothing stopped his war machine
And of world conquest he did dream
Half the nation cheered for more
With bloodlust fueled by Rummy’s War


What the world needs now

What the world needs now
is guns, sweet guns!
They make a small man tough
And there just ain’t enough
What the world needs now
is guns, sweet guns!
No not just for some, but for everyone

A BB gun is lots of fun for the little ones
Gotta teach the little nippers to kill
Forget all about feeding the hungry
And healthcare is just for the ill

What the world needs now
is guns, sweet guns!
They make a small man tough
And there just ain’t enough
What the world needs now
is guns, sweet guns!
No not just for some, but for everyone

If every car came equipped with a gun rack
Traffic altercations would be no more
Education is quite overrated
next to a Colt .44

What the world needs now
is guns, sweet guns!
They make a small man tough
And there just ain’t enough
What the world needs now
is guns, sweet guns!
No not just for some, but for everyone

A .38 is really great for a bar fight
And domestic quarrels sure wouldn’t last
Battered women shelters really aren’t needed
Marriage counseling is a thing of the past

What the world needs now
is guns, sweet guns!
They make a small man tough
And there just ain’t enough
What the world needs now
is guns, sweet guns!
No not just for some, but for everyone

Weapons of mass distraction


They came without warning
these men without honor
to subvert the future of all
A night in November
which few now remember
that led to America’s fall

A trust was molested
but scarcely contested
the plan, -only known to a few
With self- satisfaction
a new mass-distraction
-A weapon, all shiny and new

Since few had objected
and none seemed affected
they tried a more devious plan
They launched an attack
on the land of Iraq
-Deceiving the people again

They spoke of destruction
these men of corruption
and warned of more “terror to come”
Then stole what they wanted
with boldness undaunted
while people were already numb

They moved with precision
these men of derision
and took what was not theirs to take
Distracting the masses
Dividing the classes
and few knew just what was at stake

Removing all choices
and silencing voices
of all that dared stand in their way
And when they were finished
all life was diminished
-A debt we will now have to pay

-madmax

A Wolfowitz in Sheep’s Clothing

He sits in the meadow
waiting for prey
The old and the sickly
are “fair game” today
It makes not a difference
-the young or the small
When Pauly is hungry
he’ll feed on them all

For years he has waited
for just the right time
when no one was watching
to witness his crime
Distracting the flock
when the wind was just right
He sits undetected
-He’ll eat well tonight

His teeth now are showing
He’s poised for the kill
He gets no resistance
from Capitol Hill
The shepherd’s are sleeping
It’s time to attack
The Wolf has arisen
There’s no turning back

Can anything stop him?
No one can tell
Public indifference
is feeding him well
He’ll stay till the shepherds
chase him away
But why should he leave
when there’s such easy prey?

-madmax




Little Johnny Ashcroft


Little Johnny Ashcroft
So self-assured
He’s dressed like a rose
but he smells like a turd
Changing the law
in exciting new ways
to persecute immigrants, children and gays

But don’t stop there Johnny
There’s so much to do!
Crush all the freedom
before it hurts you!
Don’t stop till regular citizens beg!!
-If you were here Johnny, I’d pee on your leg!

Habeas Corpus
-A thing of the past!
Lock em Johnny
and lock em up fast!
I’d better be careful
Johnny might hear!
He’s got a wiretap stuck in his ear!

Johnny is watching
so watch what you say!
Have your neighbor’s neighbor tell
him I’m ok
I’m not a terrorist!
Don’t put me in jail!
Without any representation or bail

Can I make a phone-call?
What day is my trial?
With what am I charged?
Can I look at my file?
J Edgar Hoover is alive and well
Back from a summer vacation in hell!!!
