OBAMA AND SUICIDE SPUTNIKS by David Lawrence

The eighteenth offering from Ten Pages Press is now available: Obama and Suicide Sputniks by David Lawrence.

FISHY POLITICS

I cast my eye into the fish tank.
I will never ever eat a fish with its head on the plate.
I cannot look into its eye.
It disgusts me
Like the President of the United States trying
To fillet me,
To strip the Constitution down to its bones,
Reapportion my meat
And suck on my skeleton like it’s his very own.

THE CIRCLE OF FASCISM by David Lawrence

The fourteenth offering from Ten Pages Press is now available: The Circle of Fascism Meets at the End of Communism by David Lawrence.

EGALITARIAN SCIMITARS

Stalin and Mao killed one hundred million people.
Cuba’s incidental,
Fidel and Che are novices at executions.

Yes, we have idiot countries like Venezuela
And Nicaragua going Communist.

Hitler murdered less people than the Commies,
Only thirty million.
How come we don’t see
Other South American countries
Going Nazi?
Could the Nazis be less brutal than commies?

Perhaps the Storm Troopers were not as bad as the hordes
Of feel-good Marxists rushing across the tundra
With their equalitarian scimitars?
