Republicanized Opinions

The hand that types these words
were called “little” and “broken” by former Presidential nominee Rick Santorum, 
on Day 2 of the Republican National Convention
because it belongs to someone with
Cerebral Palsy.

These five fingers fit neither adjective.
They enable me to eat independently,
hold up half of my entire 186 pounds,
and write political blogs and poetry
to own my radical, crip body
 and empower myself and others.

13 kitchen tiles round trip
in manual chair has me glowing
as I pant my way to victory.

Insanity of feverish mind
leads to movie style revenge
in reality as golden boy
turns public disgrace.
So called political recovery
spattered along macadam of roadside

All that remains are untoward appetites
and a silver framed picture
of a pretty girl he’s forbidden
to contact for 365 days.

From 20/20

Purpose… dignity… integrity…
The vice of revenge… love turns volatile
over thrown glasses of wine and name calling… 
Regrettable words, ever after.
