Movie Star (The Bush Era)

Oh politician so high,

so high up in the sky.

Choking, choking, on the

golden snot clogging up your

aristocratic, bureaucratic nose,

on the priceless phlegm suffocating

your princely, baby soft throat,

on the putrid, hideous slime

pumping through your veins.

The arteries of our country

are blocked, occluded,

pumping away, on, on,

to death,

always, always

so oblivious.

Oh speaker, artist, movie star so

glamorous do you shine.

Shining, shining,

blinding every human eye near

and far,

like a giant silver disc

full of spacey beings from afar.

Burning away at every retina,

every self-image,

every self-defense against

false imagery and evil pretense.

You leave us so naked, like little

babies, defenseless.

Oh representative of all that is good,

and light and honest and right

and prayerful of beauty, oh Holy


Your brilliance shocks us,

your intelligence mocks us,

your capacity for deception

flatters us.

Our stupid intellect stutters

and stammers,

lamely attempting to grasp

your large cock

is just too big for our

tiny minds to comprehend.

Against your warhead death’s missile

we cannot defend,

only standby and dumbly grin.

Oh leaders and defenders of the free?!


Oh ministers of all hopeless/ uninformed/

spineless/ brain-dead/ fucks,

spitting on all who are

down on their luck.

We choke upon your cum,

we spit it up in paper cups like stale

crocodile blood.

Your illegal wars and crooked policies are


-- Susan "SpitFire" Lively
