Poem by Charles Frederickson
Graphic by Saknarin Chinayote

I scream for bananana republican
Split topped with mixed nuts
Gooey fudged prom-ices whipping cr่eme-de-la-creme
Never on Sundae vanilla supremacy

Nit-Mitt Willard Romoney suffering truthache
Re-born sterling silver spoonfed mouthpiece
Tiffany barefoot stumbles transcendental flip-flops
Shooting self in NRA flatfoot

Whatever Flavor of the Month
You want neo-politicians to be
Palin-praline rocky-rogue flaky cones
Half-baked cookie dough mint deflation

Freddie Macadamia Maalox bagel Prozac
Black Russian holy mosque cow
Norange sorbet spumoney matters meltdown
Tutti-frutti gaydar below parfait

Let`s pretend tea-witched party fake-believe
Uncorked champagne campaign bubbles burst
Overgrown tykes entertaining imaginary friends
Lost their sparkle sauterne whines

Legacy of slavery segregation racism
Blurry rearview mirror distorted reflections
Dark Ages revisited taken aback
Pro-rich anti-taxes pro-war anti-Sharia lawlessness
