*Ode to Wolf Blitzer

With the tiniest of whispers you can
drown out the sound of thousands...
The loudest
most progressive
that can be mustered

For that I resent
you for your pancake
make-up I mock you
For the pain your
blindness causes
better not say


*Election Day

Did you vote?
Did you vote?
Everywhere I go
I get the same g.d.
and when I say NO
it just gets worse


*in the mood for a change

I wasn't cut out for this sh*t
Too many compromises...
dull the reflexes
and I'm feeling very
dull right now
I need a clock that doesn't tick
A pair or eyes that don't judge
A set of circumstances
that reveal the truth
I need a break

Put the guilt away
and play it straight

Man, I don't need redemption
I just need a reputation
