Lament of a Zob
Good Loord! It seems I’m surrounded by dizzards!
There’s blizzards, and blizzards, and blizzards of dizzards!
There’s a balatron who tweets all night to his gudgeons and his slatterns.
He seems to fire up the mobs, but firing’s one of his patterns.
While I, a mere quoob, flop like a flutch
and think what to do ‘bout pettifoggers and such.
The Pecksniffs are coming with their wankers and uzzards,
the wolves in sheep’s clothing who live like such buzzards
while the shell-shocked viragos and all of the mobs
stream into my living room, where I live like a zob.
A poet for gobbins, for carkers, and diggots
who cries out against all the racists and biggots!
Injustice is real, and so is the zeal of wanting to fix what’s not right.
We’re in this together, so don’t lose your head,
even if you can’t sleep well at night.
The pressure’s been building ‘til people blow gaskets
while the death count keeps rising and filling up caskets.
The virus is morphing, it’s changing each day
a whack-a-mo spirit that begs us to pray!
The hammers! The slammers! The block-heads who block
who they don’t understand, ’cause they never take stock.
Silence is Golden, when broken with smiles
but fear does such damage it travels for miles!
There’s been miles and miles and miles of fear!
There’s safety in numbers, but you must have an ear.
There’s wisdom in hindsight, there’s wisdom in protesting
injustices perpetrated by those who’re molesting
our children and women, our black and our poor.
There’s wisdom in locking the back and front door
but not of your heart, for love calls for more
understanding of others, their lives and their worth.
It’s none of our faults that our moms gave us birth!
Well behaved women, seldom make history
and most have been too well behaved!
It’s time for oppressed to be seen and be heard
even if they are “crazy” and might seem depraved!
But the death of a mother, seems senseless and sad
and the fear of a “coward” makes me boiling mad!
The brave and the fallen, the helpless and tired
makes me want to scream, “Trump! You’re fired! You’re fired!”
