We'll make this country great again!
I'll build that wall up high.

Climate change? Economy!
It's great! Don't wonder why.

I'll take care of all your needs and get you jobs you'll love.
Raise your right hand for the pledge and pray to God above!

Do your duty as a man and grab her nice and tight!
It's OK if she fights back, they like it rough, alright?

Civil liberties, really, who needs 'em?
Burn the flag? I'll just hang you for treason!

This country is first. To protect it is best!
Whose up for a fun little nuclear arms test?

Capitalism? Yeah, I'm the money master!
Pipelines! Who cares about ecological disaster?

Gays? Girls? Abortion? WOE!
If they want that, send em' down to Mexico!

I'll rule with blood and honor too!
I'll tame this crazy, jobless zoo!

I'll fight for you and family rights!
(Mostly for rich and mostly for whites!)

Minorities? No, I'm not a racist.
It's an alternate fact: Totally baseless!

America the great. America the free!
Put a bigger pair of **** on old Lady Liberty.

Goodbye all you immigrants!
All you do is steal and loot.
Leave a couple of 'em behind:
Someone's gotta pick our fruit!

Thank you all for choosing me!

This is very great and swell.

Prove that you will follow now:
Let's all go straight to-

Heil!

I would have gone into Scottie's garage to the mattress with you when I was nine and you were twelve, or seemed like you were.

And we would have lain on that bare bed-like thing in a shaft of light and dust.

We might have laughed too.

Initiation rights, the kind I always wanted, might have occurred on that worn out piece of flotsam in a back alley idea of someone's suburban dream in the 1960's.

Between two poets who were destined to meet up anyway, so it was fate, sunshine.

Definitely fate.
just some thoughts

Love Chuck Norris facts! And Yoda!
Sometimes giving someone a second chance is like giving them an extra bullet for their gun because they missed you the first time.

Dear the girl who failed to make him feel unworthy,
    hello my name is Liyah
I am 18 and I actually fell so hard. I took one look at him and knew he was mine. he makes me feel on top of the world but not recklessly escalated. his voice makes chills travel across my spine and up my tummy and on the neck he kisses. I know i should fall over something much greater but he has be on my knees praying to a God that he realizes how amazing he is. I am honestly blessed and sent gifts by the lord./so i am sorry you failed to see the true soul of this amazing person. and i know you wanted to give him the world but your intentions got tangled and mixed up and confused and you failed to do so but trust me. i will make mountains shake just to see him smile

I'm just a girl who is still insecure about her own skin and body,
who is still thinking about everyone's comments about everything I have in this world.

I'm just a 5'4 feet girl,
with 3 body rolls,
constantly dragging and forcing herself to be a part of the beauty standards in this wretched world.

I'm just a girl who's failing both in academics and life,
but still try to make her parents proud.

of course you'll choose her over me

Unluckily, not every frog you kiss turns into a Prince Charming.
"Frogs are frogs. Period."
“the beauty of a woman is in the adventures she's taken, the lives she's touched and all the minds she's awakened.

the beauty of a woman is in the caring she gives, the sincerity in her laughter, and the passion in her griefs.
FACING THE FACTS

( To Betty Patton )

"Well, that's it!"
said the nose.

"I'm off!"

And so saying
it jumped off my face

trotted down the street
turned a corner and

...was gone.

Without even a by your leave!

My eyes could
hardly believe it.

"What...next...the ears?"
I stupidly said.

The ears took me at my word and
taking the nose as a shining example

tore themselves off
the side of my head

joined together
and flew off

like some kind of strange
fleshy butterfly

flapping madly.

"Well, hush my mouth!"
I had no sooner spoke

than the asaid fore-mentioned mouth
without saying a single word

flopped off my face
galloped off like a snail

leaving a trail
down the street.

I could see this
would end in tears.

The eyes( the ****** fools )
fell like ping pong *****

rolling themselves away
on the trail of the mouth.

I couldn't bear to see them go
but go..oh go...they did.

And yes, I had told the mirror
only this morning

that I had thought
my nose...ears...eyes and mouth

my worst features
but

I never thought
they'd take it so

personally.
Story time a long long tine ago for my little girl who didn't think her nose was a pretty as Marsha's nose It was a face off with noses, And she was only 5 for god's sake! I told her don't let the nose hear you or it will take itself off and this tale unravelled itself. Being 5 she took the tale very seriously indeed and was in fear of the nose doing a runner. After that if she glimpsed her face in the mirror she would say:"Ahhhhh nice nose...nose no go away....nice nose!" as if she could placate it like a little puppy. I didn't write poetry back then but these lines kinda capture the drama of the runaway nose and of how a little girl came to love the nose she knows.

we fuss over this
we fuss over that
who cares who is right or wrong
when it's feelings over facts

who gets to decide
who tells the biggest lies
a lie you find is still a lie
whether black or white

what if you don't know
a lie is what you're told
does it then make it innocent
if you pass it on

if it were up to me
if it were up to you
wouldn't we both want to be
ambassadors of truth

somewhere along the line
somewhere along the way
we can see we can't believe
a single word we say

i find it rather sad
diving headfirst into the deep
before we even check the facts
all based on our feelings

which has us fussing over this
fussing over that
not caring who is right or wrong
these feelings over facts

What begs a Sonnet if not to Express
But Expression alone Good Fame depends
If Maps such as these confuses the Rest
Then Life's Published Theme will begin to End
These Girls do not just a Heart label so
Pressing the Rewind back to Robin's Day
But Issues pressed onto Paper, and go
Feed the Bird's Stem and regulate their Say
Someone like me must care about these Things
And Mark at how their Chemistry reacts
Prudence, the Ingredient I must now bring
To set my Items from Falsehoods to Facts.
It would be Easier if you just Spoke
Perhaps my Attitude made me go Broke.

The process of becoming other than,
  the shedding of the old by way of time
  the hands upon the clock traverse their span,
  the ever fleeting moment reigns, sublime.

The emptiness of all objective forms,
  the rushing river, never stepped in twice,
  the reconfiguration of all norms,
  the virtues of lost ages seen as vice,

The elements converge and then react,
  the caterpillars weave themselves cocoons,
  the world amends its stock of gathered facts,
  the moths emerge, in flight to greet the moon,
  
   The firmament, destroyed and rearranged,
     the universal essence, found in change.
I'm actually beginning to enjoy writing these.

You lose some,
And
You win some.
Simple and true
Elizabeth Zenk Jun 2018
searching for her truth.
forgotten facts emerged.
more questions arise.
.
lost in time and space.
will she ever know what’s true?

Two Haikus about all I know,
looking for the truth I'll never find.

What do you do when your heart tells you one thing,
And your head another?
When you're aware of the cold hard facts
But your emotions disagree.
I know how she makes me feel
In either situation
Back and forth with pain and joy
It's enough to give you whiplash.
I've seen how she can be
Sweeter than most and in need of someone who really cares
But I've witnessed her true colors as well
Conniving lies and all.
So when it comes down to it, who do you really believe in,
The one you want to,
or the one you know best?
I know she's got a sweet side but she's truly not a very good person. And Im sick of my emotions allowing me to fall for her lies and games.
