Ode to Johnny Smith
Poem for Day 244 – 20150902

Welcome to the Twilight Zone,
played out on political stage,
courtesy of the RNC
with help from the right wing pundits.

Spawn of incessant FUD
fear, uncertainty, and doubt,
he now walks upon the earth,
fully ready to build the wall!

Ignore his minions at your risk,
creations of fair and balanced.
They'll rise up in their rage
to carry the white haired one to his place.

Gain the world and lose your soul
the good book warns within.
Heed these words disgruntle ones,
consider what the movies tell us here.

Against a Clinton he may win,
your creature of lesser evils,
just remember where his thumb will be,
like that character played by Martin Sheen.

This time there will be no Johnny Smith,
Christopher Walken to you and me,
to save the world from a fiery fate
in our own version of the Twilight Zone.
