The *!!#*/^*!)%#$+|><^%$&**!! I feel today,
for soiled souls that lie and lay,
for narrow minded idiots,
for smug complacent hypocrites,
for noxious fumes that dark the light,
for politics, both left and right,
for all the pontifical play,
‘bout ethics... a million miles away,
‘bout all the smug complacency,
‘bout how this is the "place to be"
for all the talk ‘bout making change,
for status quos we rearrange,
for inebriates that we decry,
for those we use to get us by,
for our disdain for those who govern,
while we spend the times, our own ass coverin’,
for our great concern for those in need,
while we scrutinize our bread and cheese,
for fractured love relationships,
that make the shrinks and lawyers rich,
for prejudice we cannot crack,
for racism, both white and black,
for all the hee-hee-hee-hee-haw-haw-haw,
amidst the blah-blah-blah-blah-blah-blah-blah,

OH, one more item to the list,
poems that rant and rave like this!
