The Good Guys

The good guys with guns are protecting my homeland;
The good guys with guns keep me safe
The good guys with guns have the media charmed
While the doves and the liberals chafe

The good guys with guns say they have all the answers—
For safety, for strength, they’re the ones
The good guys with guns are our saviors, except…
I’m afraid of the good guys with guns. [Read more…]

The New Colossus (“Mother of Exiles”)

Not like the brazen giant of Greek fame,
With conquering limbs astride from land to land;
Here at our sea-washed, sunset gates shall stand
A mighty woman with a torch, whose flame

Glows world-wide welcome; her mild eyes command
The air-bridged harbor that twin cities frame.

“Keep, ancient lands, your storied pomp!” cries she
With silent lips. “Give me your tired, your poor,
Your huddled masses yearning to breathe free,
The wretched refuse of your teeming shore.
Send these, the homeless, tempest-tossed to me,

Wanted: Questions For The GOP Debates

The hopefuls hate people decrying their lying;
They mustn’t expect to be taken to task!

Those fact-focused folks are a pain in the ass
We need to see less confrontation; the nation
Wants leaders like these to be given a pass! [Read more…]

The Truth


I have the world’s worst memory, or so I think someone told me once. Anyway, I very often write stuff which I completely forget I wrote. The good part about that is, I sometimes get a link to something I wrote some time ago, and I get to read it all over again, which most of the time is actually pretty cool. Yeah, sometimes it is embarassingly horrible, but I am actually rather astonished at how often I actually really actually like the stuff I wrote so long ago that I forgot about it. If any of that parses.

I mean, really, if you don’t regularly look through the archives here from years ago, you are missing some really cool things! [Read more…]
