free advice from the annals of facebook users

[actually i still view it as
several factions
of a one-party corporate clearinghouse
each subset with a logo & smiley face
but that's beside the point]

on the liberal dem side
there will always be
'lesser-evil'
'take what we can get'
'capitulation forever'
'fracking is a bridge'
     (to the abyss)
'our corporations are progressive or health insurance related'
'sorry...we'll have to cut/gut the students & seniors
to satisfy the other side'
'drones = precision'
     (killing machines)
'a derivative of democracy is our name!'
'democracy is messy so let the president decide'

on the very pure left side
the bookshelves are perfectly labeled
every i must be dotted
in bold
left of center
the platform is made of concrete
     (some of it pre-cast)
if you can't fill both sides of your flyer with text
you're probably not analytical enough
if you have any doubts or fears
abstention is preferred
to messy
     (that word again)
participation

in every tea party coffee klatch
the pot's filled with
     phony messiah complexes
     1950s john wayne machismo
     assault weapons
          (real & virtual)
     grey flannel retro republican
     illusions & delusions
          open the lid
          exposure
          is better than intellectual deconstruction
          let them self-evaporate

leaving me
with the messy
& imaginative greens
roaring in from the margins
     singing within the noise
     tentatively stepping up
     just before sunrise
          beginnings are often
          unnoticed
          or purposely ignored
