for Xmas to cross out his list," grumbles the oldman,
tea and toast with the machine, classics from Havana,
soon a treasonable offence.
"The dysfunctional state of american politics does not
give me great confidence in the short run.....

"Well now Georgie Boy, this is one awful mess....
you couldn't have done this alone, someone must
have put ideas in your mind," murmurs Mom.

floods in California, "Homeland Security at work,
no hurricane relief to fuckup, Georgies' jewspy at the helm
of the USS FUCKUP.
Of course there is no inflation
and houses cant fly
unless a big wind

Where life is a breeze
in the florida keys
these Isles of Eternal Sun.
