Greedy Senator 001

An Inconvenient Seed

In the Senate men’s room
where Left and Right
meet in the middle
to piddle (and diddle)
my “magic beans” await

Every time a member
ignores the attendant
or doesn’t even tip,
my seeds spring into action
attaching to silk socks

Growing between their toes
vines twining up lazy legs
over pompous paunches
anywhere they can find

Buds bloom into small papers
the size of dollar bills
All his corporate sponsors are listed
for the world to see and to know
that this putz don’t know shit from shinola

After the lines are laced, the other shoe
gives way to a bud, a roll of
Kimberly-Clark toilet paper
(T.P. made by the Kochs)
and every square squawks

WalMart… WalMart… WalMart…

Shanyn at dverse Poets askied for our thoughts on seeds. Of course, Congress sprang to mind (on so many levels, ha ha ha).

Even though these are horrible times for our government, we must never forget the biggest villain of all: MONEYPOWERGREED. Peace, Amy
