Radicalized Republicans

Radicalized Republicans

I had a plan called “Radial”
To show the sins of Right
I decided to make a meme for me
I worked hard through the night

I have a pic of Michelle and Mitch
The ugliest on the net
I learned to us my paint program
Attention I will get

The bombing of Boston hit my heart
The men were radicalized
But in our land we have our strange
If people would just surmise

Being Left or Muslim is
No different if you’re crazy
You mind can still succumb to crime
When thoughts get skewed or hazy

If those you know have bad agenda
And work beyond the fray?
Notify authorities
And tell of their radical ways

If you have a teenager, or if you are "blessed" with the joys of being ADD, Then you will appreciate my situation. I am over 50. And as I get older, I struggle more and more to stay calm, stay focused and stay at my desk. ADD isn't something one necessarily grows out of.

It’s the little round amphetamines
that I mean to take
That keeps me on my tasks each day
But don’t keep me awake

Perhaps I can do some Adderall
Down the hall today
To hasten on my profession
And in my seat I’ll stay.

I wish it wasn’t anxiety
That gets so serious
But I’m inflicted with such pains
I get delirious.

ADD’s prescriptions are
Tons above the rest
For giving me the peace of mind
So I can do my best

An elderly broad I might be
Maybe not a young chick
But give me tax code for the rich
And my drugs will do the trick

Ode to the Jellybelly

We are all victims at some point in our life. Everyone of us (who have access to candy) will or have been victim of the jellybean. Here in Kansas City we hear people say "I'm going to the store. What flavor of Koolaid you want?" And response is usually something like "my favorite flavor is green" for example. What's your favorite flavor of Jellybean, green, red or blue? Today I walked past my co-worker's desk and was offered  a snack sample of jellybeans and almost died when I bit into what I though was a banana flavored bean and it turned out to be - ugh, lemon. There ought to be a law.

Silly yellow jellybean
Taste like a potato
I think I should be able to buy
a bean that tastes of tomato

If we had a salad bean
Roquefort would be the taste
That had us run to the store
In hoards we’d go with haste

Don’t forget the steak and peas
Made of these jelly rounds
We’ll say that they are calorie free
So we won’t gain the pounds
