Tempting false choices
Bright, alluring distractions;
Banana peel wins

Ceiling will be raised,
But cirrus clouds are still clouds;
Signs of coming storm

American debt (debate)

Monday, July 25th, 2011

Settles in for a long fight;

Shrill midnight voices
Plead their case in Boehner’s sleep
Nightmare parasites

Next, as king’s compost tender,
I will betray you”

He claims us all on taxes,
It’s good for business”
