Blind Date


Frumptart meets Trumptard:  it’s bliss forever!

Rainbow twins make pink Indian Summer

Poke your hontas, indigenous lover,

Till Twitter-dumb gets Twittering-dumber.

Having had my fill of a noxious brew

(Militant Marxist Genderqueer free verse),

My soul now seeks a less venomous view:

Write more poetry!  Dispel this global curse.

Today’s prompt asked me to do what I always do when I attempt a poem:
PROMPT #3: Today’s optional prompt asks you to make a list of ten words. You can generate this list however you’d like – pull a book off the shelf and find ten words you like, name ten things you can see from where you’re sitting, etc. Now, for each word, use Rhymezone to identify two to four similar-sounding or rhyming words.


A rousing hymn to techno-spring.
Please kneel for social distancing.
(Consider what you’re worshiping.)

New strains infect the melody:
A chord of biochemistry
Invading imperceptibly . . .

No longer dim or vague, but viral
Airborne fears begin to spiral.
Breath: a pulmonary trial.

Parties perish. Nations sigh.
Decrees are ordered from on high
Intending to demystify.

Our faces pushed to lifeless screens
Seeking solace from machines,
Placing faith in new vaccines . . .

Breaking news appears satanic:
Lemmings, in Pavlovian panic
Render rulers megalomanic.

City-dwellers bought the farm;
Chinese numbers quell alarm,
Mother Nature to disarm.

Bureaucrats drone on. World health:
A strategy of Marxist stealth
To siphon off our nation’s wealth.

Consolidating more control,
A cashless one-world rule their goal.
Read your Bible. Guard your soul.

  1. At least I know I’m not the only one in this state of mind. I guess next we will build the American Autoban? I’m not sure I spelled that right but you know what I mean. I don’t like the 21st century much but I do enjoy your “attempts” at poetry. Where are they taking us as they spend trillions and trillions and trillions of our money? I wonder sometimes if China stopped buying our debt so they’ve shut the economy down for a reset and a new virtual currency. I do think they are on the verge of using our tech toys as a new kind of very direct and personal government. I received an emergency alert on my phone today telling me to shop only for essentials. My governor wants to be our nanny.
    Don’t listen too me too much. I don’t need to read the conspiracy theories of others I wake up with them. However, I never saw this one coming. I think I’ll be voting for “No king but King Jesus” I’m just done with politics.

      I haven’t heard from you in a long time. Thanks for reading and commenting. Yes. It does get worse doesn’t it. I hope you are well. Did you catch muh Hillbilly preamble? Are you still in NM?
      I checked your blog but I guess you are not doing NaPoWriMo this year (?)

      • I’m homeschooling my grandsons. Can’t find the energy to write. I hope you are doing well in this weird new world. NM is a horribly sad place right now. Our governor likes to play Nazis and Jews with us. Lots of unemployed people and hunger already. My grandsons will be using WordPress for their essays so, I hope I can sneak some reading in. Stay close to God. He is our hope.

        You had a good governor a while back, did you not? Or did the same governor get Nazified…


      • Gary Johnson was a great governor. We’ve had a lot of mildly corrupt governors but this one is a little dictator. She has demolished the economy and made criminals out of law abiding people. It’s an unfathomable mess and I think we need federal intervention to straighten it out but I don’t know if the calvary will really come. One of our ex-governors, Bill Richardson, is named in the pedophile island horror show. He’s also, been appointed to head up the investigation into Zorro Ranch lol that’s how deep the corruption is here. Centuries of it, actually. So…pray for New Mexico and her people.
