Remember 2009? Good Times!

It’s been 6 months since Trump got out

And despite the recent talks

Of hyperinflation, unemployment,

A border crisis, plunging stocks,

A gas pipeline disaster,

Covid deaths yet unabated,

And all the buildings burnt to ash

By those who “demonstrated”

We can all be thankful

That our country’s back on track.

In other news: Pot charged with hate speech

For calling Kettle black.

Guest Poem From An Anonymous World Leader

There was a, um, a a a flower?

And it has, you know, plants,

And some are yellow and some are blue

But that doesn’t change that they’re green

On their, um, stalks or stems or something.

And when I smell them

Wait, they said don’t say smelling…

Flowers are green and and and thank you good morning!

The New American Dream

Anti-racism

Is when white people

Protest against white people

For being white.

You Get Equality! And You Get Equality! Everybody Gets Equality!

A growing social concern

That, to us, recently came

And affects the common person

Is Inequality of Fame.

Some folks are very famous

And some people are not

And it’s patently unfair

And it ain’t how it ought.

I suggest a policy

Wherein all people must

Create a social profile

With a media giant we trust

And exactly one trillion people

And never more or less

Must follow every profile

So society won’t regress.

If everybody’s famous

We’ll have perfect mental health.

Then maybe a trillion dollar minimum wage

Can do the same for wealth!

Update: It’s come to this poet’s attention that white, heterosexual, natal-males still exist, so this probably won’t happen for a while.

We Won… But At What Cost?

The “New World Order” people

And Illuminati really

Missed the point; That making people

Into sheep is kinda silly.

After all, who wants to conquer

A bunch of people dumb enough

To fall for propaganda

As insane as modern stuff?

The Vikings and the Mongols

Had at least old-fashioned pride,

And made sure that their detractors

Fought in wars and mostly died.

But today, old-fashioned values

Like rape and pillage have degraded

To where “rape” means being male

And “pillage” means “medicated.”

And so if all the people

That conspiracies suggest

Cancel all the good among us

And then rule o’er all the rest

I wish them much good fortune

When their conquest is complete.

They’ll starve in perfect harmony

While the cancelled grill their meat.

The Nice Thing About Biden Poems Is That They’re Easy To Rhyme

If ever there were a day

To say Joe Biden died

And Kamala was the pres now

And would be preside with pride

Just to test the public

To see how they react

It would be April 1st I guess.

Abloo scaree kerack.

What Do Hipsters And The Government Have In Common?

I found out a shortcut

Whose power I tap

To see if a thing

Is worthwhile or crap:

I ask normal people

“Do you prefer A or B?”

Then they say “Both are good”

And I settle on C.

Great Minds Think Alike, But Fools Seldom Differ

The best thing about 8 billion people

Is, at least according to me,

That no matter what weird opinion you have

At least one other guy will agree.

The worst thing about 8 billion people

Is, also according to moi,

That a bunch of the rich and the stupid ones

Agree their opinions are law.

What About The Roads Though?

In the past twelve months, America

Printed twice as much money

As every American Billionaire combined,

Which is twenty percent

Of all dollars ever spent

Since 1835.

That money could pay off

All American credit card debt

AND all American student loan debt

Twice.

And so I ask:

Why do we need taxes again?

Social Media Has Violated the United Nations Declaration of Universal Human Rights

This is not my usual content, so feel free to ignore me if you’re so inclined.

Recently, social media companies have made it common practice to suspend the rights of individuals and organizations to speak freely on their platforms. Their reasons are numerous: To prevent offense, to protect democratic integrity, to protest hate and intolerance, and many other reasons.

This suppression of free speech is legal under the laws of the USA and most other countries because users of social media agree to abide by terms and conditions of a platform. That said, the legality of such suppression is in direct violation of the universal human rights of all citizens of the United Nations’ member countries.

In 1948, the United Nations agreed on a standard of human rights accorded to all humans, regardless of race, class, gender, ethnicity, or any other factor. In this article is the following agreement:

Article 19

“Everyone has the right to freedom of opinion and expression; this right includes freedom to hold opinions without interference and to seek, receive, and impart information through any media and regardless of frontiers.”

I believe that the current activity of social media platforms and corporations blocking individual users from sharing opinions, including those which may be intentionally or accidentally incorrect, is in violation of the spirit of human rights and international cooperation.

Furthermore, I believe that any law made by a nation with or without the consent of its people which restricts free expression (including so-called “hate speech” laws) is likewise in violation of universally recognized human rights.

If you agree with this opinion, please share this post or the text within. It is only through the collective international voice of individual humans that the liberty our forefathers intended will endure.

If you disagree, I welcome your corrections. That or just ignore me : )
