Excellent Satire

You don’t have to agree with it and it may even make you angry depending on your political outlook, regardless it’s brilliant satire.


Saving Poets

Let’s face it poets do not become wealthy because their books are flying off the shelves or they are filling auditoriums with fans eager to listen to their sonorous pontifications.  Thanks to the web a poet is afforded the opportunity for product placement just like they do in cinema.  The key element is to place references to consumer products hyper-linked to the corporate web site.  Collect on the conversions! Win coupons!  Here is my first pass:

Sedulous sphere in Arrid lands
Your tireless breath drives my mind
Deep into the Magic Kingdom
I seek relief and find the small world after all
I seek peace but find…that
Seeking, seeking my soul
climbs desperately the Ice Mountain.
A Somnapure rest of belligerent joy.
