Cannibal Lies

American Daughters of the Civil War Revolution are so madly in love with their Bluish-Gray metal sons Incestuous desires borne of slave tax oppression Give to Caesar whatever tribute he crown heavy lay on you, feed three-fifth portions to the hungry publican lions Let the Den Mother Lying famine devour your children too Cannibalize every ink spot known self-evident truth, marginalize any constitutional chains inhibiting your ravenous lust Another seething pot of baby bones is the Baal proof Give to Pharaoh whatever gut pyramid schemes he Isis dream, feed you quarterly lies from the war widow collection plate The Wall Street church in tea need of another gun barrel beam Amerikan Sons of the Ruble Con Bolshevik Revolution, so gluttonly love their daughters’ leather fetish for the holster Homicidal desires borne of suicidal plantation depression

Wow! A great deal is said in this piece. The metaphors are deep rooted in our culture and have hidden meanings.

Gosh, very powerful pen, Freddie. I dare say, I do not know every single allusion you made but I know pretty well what you were getting at. The figurative language was striking.
