If I'm in a group,
And show support
For the other members of the group,
That makes sense.
If I walk into a clique,
And my energy contrasts with that of the clique,
I don't think I'm gonna' rescue anyone.
Even if they seem "liberal",
They have their unstated rules.
It can be worse than dealing with
Religious people
Like Muslims or Orthodox Jews
Who live by the Book.
Eventually,
I start rubbing them the wrong way.
They're trying to distance themselves
From patriarchal,
Organized religions,
But they have their
Unwritten  codes.
I have to respect
The Cult of the Individual
People have their divergent sexualities.
They want to be accepted
For who they are,
But acceptance doesn't necessarily result
In  cooperation,
And there is no guarantee
That it will lead to achievement
Or success.
So,
Though I must respect It,
The Cult of the Individual
Is,
A Kind of  
Spiritual Dead End.

We are what our parents' parents
taught them to fear.
The atom of liberated thought,
the shallow, the queer, the lazy.
We are what our fathers were not,
or what they never had the balls to be.
We are united by the hypothesis
of instant pleasure.
We are measured by dollar signs,
nickels, dimes, roaring down
Penny Lane blaring hip-hop,
dropping the surnames and
blaming the slave trade for
the stains on our rap sheets.
We are what comes after the comma
in the history book sentence,
sentenced to life in mind-drug prison.
Listen!
We are going nowhere but forward.
We are the generation of disorder,
hoarders of unrealized potentials
who cross borders
just to say we did so.
We are the flame of fucking science
turning your bibles into embers.
We are the generation that
remembers to forget.
Let us take an inch and we will
turn it into a mile so you can
watch us march down it single-file
while you pray to god we don't
make it to Capitol Hill.
You know we will.
Listen!
We are the generation.
Liberal Slogans are posted on the walls
And on T-Shirts for sale
Here at Parsley.
It's a lot to think about,
But I can't see
That any real attempt at Community Building
Is being made?
As far as I'm concerned,
These cliquish Liberals
Really laid down the red carpet
For President Donald Trump
To enter the White House.
I never could figure out why
Parsley has all these Liberal Slogans on the walls
If no one here openly discusses their meaning?
Wouldn't it be more creative and thought provoking
To put Nazi and Stalinist Slogans on the Walls?
I think this is how Kim Jong-un of North Korea
Became confident enough
To perform an international charm offensive.
His creativity was never constrained
By the need to be
Politically correct.

What are they?
                        For I just don't know.

Television, radio, papers...
                                 do you suppose they'll tell you?

They do not.
                 I wonder why?


Today the government,
             -then took these steps to,
                     -in defense of your rights for
                                          -and a common good.


Run by Liberals,
                trying to make everyone gay.

Elitists seeking children,
                          to indoctrinate, to ruin, to have sex with.

They hate everything,
                    everyone, love stealing, regulating your every move.

We know now,
                    that Russia was involved in some way,

That, Donald Trump has, in fact, ties to Russia,
                                       the scope of which we are yet to determine.

Republicans always do this,
                         obstruct, obfuscate, oligarchy...just awful humans.

-Maddow
                    




Did you know,
                -that The Consumer Financial Protection Bureau
                                  -will help repair your credit for you?
                                                   -that government *WANTS
to help?

fluttering, fluttering...
fluttering, fluttering...
fluttering, fluttering...

                                                 birds


                                         HU COCK ITCH!

                             *fluttering, fluttering...

The Congressional wag GOPs
Spend most of their time on their knees
Their favorite repast
Is the kissing of ass
Just like the whores in DC.

Republicans surrendered their shame
They just call it by some other name.
They see their sad schism
As patriotism
And point to Obama to blame.

The Senator from Old Virginia
Just loves shoving it in ya.
At every election
Bigots bow to his erection
And let that Old Turtle come skin ya.

Republicans are making it clear
As we come to the end of this year
Their regime is a mess
But they couldn’t care less
They screw us with no trace of fear.

The guy now on top is a fake
GOP worked overtime to make.
The cheating and lies
Support the unwise
And hide all the money they take.

Our leadership now is misnamed.
Ignoring the people is their game.
They go golf a few rounds
And throw us to the hounds
Then set the Constitution aflame.
I don't want to see your
Face
Any more.
I don't want to eat your
Food.
I am not interested
In your phony
Ideals.
I don't want to look at
The Hot Chicks
That eat at your cafe.
I don't want to waste my time
Trying to cultivate a relationship
With someone
Who is too
Full of himself.
Megan Sep 2017
We are the kids
Who want to feel alive
We want to feel liberated and beautiful and young.
We are the sad youth.
Of cutting
And anti-depressants
Praying for some one to save us
From ourselves,
When our minds are dark
And we are alone.
We are the wild youth.
Of late nights
And city lights
With our lungs filled with smoke
And adrenaline pumping through our veins.
We are the lonely youth.
Where no one knows our thoughts
And no one understands
But God, how we wish they would.
We are the hipster indie youth.
We don't do it for the aesthetic
Because this is who we are
We live our lives in black white
And sometimes, someone beautiful
Adds in the most vibrant color.
We are the wandering youth.
Searching, exploring, running, grasping
At whatever we can
That make us see
There is hope
And wonder
And brilliance in the world.
We are the youth of today
We are different
But we are human.
We are the youth.
And even if our youth is fading,
The memories we made aren't.
I hope that when you read this, you remember moments that made you feel sad, happy, in love and alive. I really hope you do.

Fuck this system, I ain't with it
I'm tired of always submitting
To what you say, I don't know I'll admit to it
I'll go against the people and be a misfit
To this messed up system, what a hypocrite
America is, "the president" is clearly unfit
What a freaking nitwit
I'm willing to outwit
this shitty system, misfit I'll be
Watch me; I'll get the innocent acquitted
And the immoral readmitted
G Rog Rogers Sep 2017
If you are not a liberal
when you are young
You have no heart

But as you grow older
if you are not a conservative
You have no brains.

Somewhere there is a place
for compassionate conservatives
That is where I stand.

Centerpoint.

Reaching as far as my hands can possible stretch

In both directions.

-R.
