Bonus Sonnet Because of Another Avoidable War With A Mandatory Mose Allison Song About Mercy You Must Listen To

by John Kendall Hawkins


"You're either fer me or agin me."

- toilet stall wall, GW Bush White House, 2001


Find a Here-Removal Technique That's Right for You.

I myself like to ride Dylan's blues, tears of rage,

pretend the Bard pissed on warmaster Ellsberg's grave --

well, not Ellsberg, but those on whom he whistleblew.

Another thing you can do is play Let's Blame Chomsky!

The prolific public philosopher who talks

about thinking, like Socrates, but then he walks

when 9 Eleven├ "× comes up. Hildegaard Jablonsky,

we cry after him, mean with fists and screwed up faces.

Oscar Wilde once said each man kills the things he loves.

Got him exiled to a Paris gutter. O Prince's doves!

(The word choice -- things -- didn't help.) The human races!

The Nihils have won. The Bard's guitar's out of tune.

Pamper the bum: You'll be sh*tting yourself real soon.
