Poems by a Fed-Up (but Otherwise Really Happy) Atheist

* Stupid!

There are folks who’d rather screw the poor, for tax breaks for the wealthy; *
Who’d rather throw up roadblocks than ensure that folks are healthy; *
Who rush to buy assault guns after kids are massacred, *
And yell that Santa’s white, not black, and that’s the final word! *
Who – unbelievably – believe there’s a guy up there named “God,” *
And a simple “Happy Holidays” puts their panties in a wad; *
Who hate hate HATE all government, but love their Medicare; *
And scream, “Deport the immigrants!” but like the work they bear; *
Who disdain the claim that climate change imperils you or me, *
Yet cry that same-sex marriage wrecks our whole society – *

To all you hard-right-wingers who denounce, distort, delay,
So fearful of all progress that you block it every way,
Priorities all backwards! Arguments not lucid!
My heart-felt wish for you this year?

Stop being so damn stupid!

  1. this seems really hateful…

    • Yeah, one of my meaner ones, I’m afraid. On the other hand, sometimes the truth hurts…

      • well you describe what is wrong with the right side of the right/left spectrum. you must however also see that a lot of these things that are bad about the right side overlap with the left side. These people all intend good but the road to hell is paved with good intentions.
