I. Z at 17

Once upon a time in space

there was a happy little dancing man

with a moony smile upon his face

and a pencil stash, moved with pizzash

across the floor of the celestial sea

He dreamed of passing his TEFL

and moving to a kibbutz (wouldn't you?)

amidst a green Gaza olive orchard

taken from a semi semite named Fahq

but Da says no and he can't go

but his head kept on swimming though

and he became a moonwalking crotch-clutching

Ukraine vaudeville star in black leather pants

moving on stage like pockets full of ants

over-engaged charlie chaplin leggy showgirl action

and looking on, playing doctor, one thinks: ritalin

is in order


II. Z Dances with the Stars

Don't dance so close to me

was not the young but older Z's motto

balls had dropped, hair was had

there was nothing to stop class-clown's progress

but the full moon itself on Broadway

and the reluctant nyets of inward glances of desire

when you think of how Yeltsin

stepped like a dancing bear next door

for the Yankee Doodle Dandy element

soused and slurring and gaily patriotic

you shake the egg noggin and sigh

but Zlod when he trods among the stars

like Legs Diamond to a full house

conjures up gardens of earthly delights

in Jew heaven, and, Jesus,

there is only Jew heaven

when you think about it


III. Z's Oligarch

Somewhere along the line Z broke bad

and his zigs zagged and zags zigged

and his dancing pinstripe suit introjected itself

and he started doing taxi driver moons in the glass

you talkin' to me?

and he'd pull a Marxist mirror scene

circling around the other side to see himself

as the other half sees him

and there he was

in the nude of his being

seeing the Pimp, Ihor

the Jewish Thor cellphone in hand

pulling a pallet of cash out of his pocket

telling twinkle toes to run

for office with that mighty orifice

but first the warm up tour on TV

as Servant of the People


IV. Burisma's Oligarch

Meanwhile, back on the funny farm

the Burisma Gas and Lights operation

was cracking shale in Donbass

sizing up the terrain littered with bodies

human bodies, piled high in energy fields

Chevron had seen in the Ghan

Papa, who was a bulldozer driver

at the Auschwitz festival, at the wheel

of fortune in men's eyes

smiling at the mourning sun

Hunter Biden was high on hooch

collecting tax evaded clams in the boardroom

under the table, where Cofer Black

ambassador spy at large and mercenary man

would soon join him, technically

there to help Ihor with hit men in the field

he vowed to go on until flies were goose-stepping

across Wagner's eyes (surprise, surprise)

in Russian-speaking gas holdings

then someone farts

then someone lights a match


V. The Bidens

Joe's the first president

from a credit slave state

worships usury and Christ

so forget about relief

onerous student loans

my Black friends,

including you, Corn Pop,

you still owe for Barber School

and for the costume you never returned

playing Sweeney Todd from the Hood

in the end the black hole swallows

all light from head to toe, no glow

"nothing says f*ck You, Putin,

like a Biden on the board of Burisma"

in a debt slave country

full of Bernie Madoffs and low-rent

goombahs, although the pretty girls

on the heel can kick up a storm or two

Donbass today, renamed Burisma tomorrow

leggo my eggo, you little "schizo" twerp

quoth the oligarch who shall remain nameless


VI. Cofer Black

Compare and contrast

before your reputation's trashed

by nefarious poltergeisties

of the same ol' new world order

regime

VIII. Clown Servant of the People TV

Vlod couldn't believe the sh*t

he was seeing, until 2014 arrived

with relief from the CIA

and redistributed the wealth

Ihor made off like a bandit with PrivatBank cash

laundered in the Ozarks

and then came the big break

and Vlod came clean and told the truth

In Irish classrooms they tell limericks

as political anecdotes to children

little paddy hahas of infinite delight

which has nothing to do with anything

just saying


VII. Why We Want Z as Prez

He's handsome as Elvis

if the Pelvis had been Ukrainian

and he passed his TV couch casting

as the forever carping servant of the people

he could dance

he could vaudeville

he could joke

but best of all

he knew nothing about politics

in one of the most corrupt countries in the world

according to a US controlled transparent agency

shhh

And when Trump threatened him

with withholding funds for weapons

like Biden had done years before

he didn't tell DJ to take a flying leap

through an upside down snowstorm in Greece

he acted dazed and confused, because he was an actor

and let the eavesdropping CIA whistleblower

pass on third hand accounts of the phone call to the IG

and impeachment was all the apples she wrote


V. Clown Servant of the People For Realz

Let's hear it for (applause ejaculates prematurely) for

the precedent president (he had that in common with Trump)

the first Jew outside of Israel to rule

Bernie Sanders was so fuckin upset

to see how easy it could be elsewhere

Vlod, a self-loathing Jew holocaust denier sorta (Haaretz)

Z the nancy boy confusing one dancer with another

Z with a ruff gruff huff knows how to act tuff, especially in the buff

the dream comes true for Z's handlers

Z makes money, pleads with Congress for cash and a no-fly zone,

shows them how the service sector has taken a hit,

and there's not a dry eye in the House or Senate,

Schiff recalls how he was serviced in Odessa, weeps to think

Z's one lucky busker!

It's your money America!

Your roads, hospitals, and schools

Thank You! Thank You! Thank You! Keep it coming!

The offshore banking business is alive and well


.

Even if democracy's not

Democracy's not

not

no

Until finally there's nothing left

but to stand and applaud the performance

in a Two-Minute Love

at Cannes
