SOTU Stream of Consciousness

nucular, nucular, nucular
bi-partisan — when it benefits my party
it’s my party and i’ll bi if i want to
one-sided standing o — standing orgasm after standing orgasm
hillary smirking
will lieberman eat ham-as?
condy rice looking nice
evil dum and evil dee on either side of president b
do you wear a blue tie or a red one?
no cliche left behind
State of the Undone


Dark stuff. I really like the juxtiposition of political and sex/food imagery in the middle of the poem. It brings to mind a porcine orgy of self congratulation. It also comes across to me as a fairly bi-partisan skewering.

I like it a lot.

Although I couldn’t bring myself to watch the event, I now can definitely picture it — I did see the VA governor’s “Better Way” talk but couldn’t really hear it because I was so distracted by the red tie.

only 1000 more days of our fair President. I enjoyed your take on it.
