There are priorities.

has been
totally ruined
by
death
plans
to reduce
her stress level
from

by

her nails done
roots dyed
and
a proper styling
for
her position
endeavors
facilitated
by

the opening

salons
she had
also
taken strigent precautions
of her own
she
had her driver
disinfect the limousine

bumper to bumper
with
some rather expensive
solution
provided
free of charge
by

however
as she left
the premises
a homeless man

she was rushed
to
her personal physician

all was well

tho
i understand
the
economic issue
i do
take issue
with
the proposed
reopening
of
the economy
where
i
am expendable
due
to
my age
you see
i’ve
earned
this
damn
retirement
and
do not feel
that
returning
retirement funds
to
washington
as
a result
of
the government’s
kill your grandparents initiative
will
do anything more
than
pay
for
a round
of
presidential golf
so
i’m voting
against
such
proposals
and
those
who support
them

covid-19 cure…

It’s so sad that some lowlifes want to take advantage of our citizenry.
The masks N95 are in demand. I received an email that might ease this problem. The email advertised a N99 mask. I guess the higher number the better. Even if it doesn’t exist.

step right up
and
get your covid-19 cure here
now
i’m certain
some of you
heard
from
the scientific community
that
there’s no cure
for
the virus
but
the cure’s here
yes folks
these little beauties
are
the answer
to all your prayers
made
from
genuine household disinfectant
and
endorsed by the president
himself
that giant ego
in
the east
no need
for
you to consult
some
overtrained doctor
when
our escapee
from
the insane asylum
can provide you
with
the
last
injection
and
medicine
you’ll
ever
take

covid-19 obituaries…

Read Between the Minds

among the dead
a child
someone’s mother
as well
as
loving fathers
oh
and
grandparents
too many
to
mention
by
name
but
you know them
they were
your friends
neighbors
and
colleagues
they
perished
well
were
politically sacrificed
for
fascist ideology
and
delusions of grandeur
delusions
unrestrained
by
those
desiring
political supremacy
supremacy
over
duty to nation
sworn duty
but
it seems
a person’s
pledge
is
not
nearly
as
important
as
their purse

immediate recopening of the economy catcalls…

To some people money is more important than life.

Read Between the Minds

have you tasted
sadness
that
salty residue
from
tears
mingled
with
innocent blood
the blood
of seniors
and
children
blood
leached
from
the veins
of
humanity
veins
that
so
easily
collapse
when
only
the economy
of
death
is considered
no
awareness
of
keystone species
just
key economic indicators

pangloss goes to washington…

I wish this all wasn’t true, but it is.

Read Between the Minds

i can’t find my tears
for all those loved ones who’ve died
anger overrides
my feelings of grief because
much could’ve been avoided
those who are guilty
proclaim daily all is well
sequestered from truth
they spin deadly webs of lies
entangling souls in death’s web
but crowds continue
to pay to see the freak show
con men continue
to promise what cannot be
nor in truth ever has been

a somewhat less than a modest proposal…

I wish the values described in this piece were not thoughts of our government.

Read Between the Minds

quite a simple plan
sacrifice all old people
to balance budget
let them all get the virus
thus reducing tax burdens
since that would decrease
the earned retirement payouts
though they’ve sacrificed
the economy’s foremost
so your grandparents are toast
however government
can channel funds to the rich
making them richer
and social security
will be a thing of the past
as for young workers
they’ll continue servitude
just making ends meet
crushed grains of humanity
beneath the grindstone of greed
bright side there’s no need
to fatten up poor children
to feed the wealthy
since food will be plentiful
without those old folks around
