Lynch An Empty Chair
lynch an empty chair
and wave a flag of freedom
in racist delight  

gives proof that legislation
can’t whiten a blackened heart

Legislation
The quince are blooming
They are blooming on their own
Not because I asked,
Not because a law was passed,
There's no order from a throne

What isn't flawed
What isn't flawed?
The rule of law?
Any document that holds power
Any legislation written down
Engineered by man 
Dictated by man
Written down by man

Man is flawed
What isn't flawed?...

Hammer, the Don
Once there was a man called Hammer, the Don
the power of legislation to execute judgement he owns
his fort is full of "inhibitions" = "grudge"
his policy "no flattery only boasting" judge!
bloody this hammer should come to light.Done!...

A Good Man
He healed, changed individual persons,
But Guttmann caused, beckoned legislation,
His remembrance went towards our fitness, warmth;
He behaved in the name of love, meaning,
For his neighbours, country residents, friends.

Premium Member school shootings
school shootings
anguished screams

  public outrage
    calls for action
      marches & rallies
        media blitzes
          politicians fulminate
        propose legislation
       congress debates  
     bills stall & die
  anger subsides

nothing happens
school shootings

Premium Member Unusual legislation
A gentleman of Polish ancestry
  who came to the USA recently
Took an interest in America's direction
  leading up the 2020 election

He eyed a bill demanding reparations
  an unusual piece of legislation
Requiring all white folks, even Polish princes
  to pay a tax on what transpired long since

WALKERS BAGS OF TASTE 1
Walkers crisps should be forced to comply
With trade description legislation
And stop disappointing their customers
With their artificial flavourization

When purchasing a bag of Walkers crisps
The refined palate of an epicurean
Would be gravely disappointed if they did not
Taste of Rambler, Hiker or Pedestrian

WALKERS BAGS OF TASTE 2
Walkers crisps should be forced to comply
With trade description legislation
And stop disappointing their customers
With their artificial flavourization

When purchasing a bag of Walkers crisps
The connoisseur would think it a mistake
If he was unable to detect the distinct flavour
Of sweaty cagoule and Kendal mint cake

In Gods We Trust
Welcome, unto the fallout and collateral damage 
Is everywhere you turn but no ones going to admit it 
Nor shall they take the blame actually; their rat race carries on ?
Chasing down this piece of abominations pink cheese; pornography, bigamy....
Legislation, science, sin sacrifice balancing budgets sub rosa's, consumed as green.

Premium Member Beggars Legislation
The Beggars Legislation
By David J Walker

The beggars dream standing up right
On the next street corner

Knowing how things ought to be
Knowing safe places to sleep and eat

A nation of their own 
A kingdom unto themselves 

Taxing the merciful in denominations of 
Street-smart wealth

In turn praying for the souls of all those
Who owe it all to someone else

Rotting Masked
How Much Longer Will We
Sacrifice JUSTICE for MERCY
With the likes of 
Our Dee Pee Bee's (Domestic Purposes Benefits)
Before we realize it
Undermines OUR morality
Insidiously insinuating itself in
To legislation landscaped unevenly
As if handouts are 'free'.

"Who DECIDES WHO IS NEEDY?"
Should be the question asked.
Why do we ignore
Embedded in the core
The rot mercy masked?...

Premium Member Pray for the Government
An ancient sage once warned the citizenry:
  Pray for the welfare of the government.
  For without the fear of its legislation
  Every man would swallow his fellow (man) alive.

This is in need of a slight change in the USA
For the Trump Presidency (2016 to ?):
  Pray for the welfare of the governed --
  That the leader not swallow his subordinates alive

Premium Member Some like it hot
Some like it hot
  Some like it cold
When it's cold in Chicago
  My bones feel old

Some like it cold
  Some like it hot
When it's cold in Chicago
  A bowl of soup hits the spot
 
Some like Illinois
  Some do not
With the new legislation
  The state's going to pot

Some like America
  Some do not
Between Trump and Ilhan Omer
  The whole country's distraught

Some like poets
  Some do not
I can only tell you this:
  They give it all that they've got...

An Observation
Blind freedom,
Through an unwanted separation.
Formed alliances,
At a new destination.
Undesirable personality,
Caused the segregation.
A pitiful person,
For lack of congregation.
Forcibly imprisoned,
A depression fortification.
Partners of the past,
Are the new legislation.
Labeled a loser,
An inexcusable reputation.
Flashbacks of betrayel,
A suitable compensation.
Mistreated emotions,
A new form of defecation.
Relationships experienced,
A tremedous complication....

Premium Member Rights -- to Riots
Looking back on those tumultuous summers
from nineteen sixty-five through sixty-eight:
   Recalling
   Harlem and Newark
   Detroit and Chicago
   Watts and even LA--
Young folks have asked me, Could JFK have saved the day?

Here is my answer
Don't know if it's right
After all I'm an outsider, I'm white

Yet it seems to me... 
LBJ's civil rights legislation
somehow, one way or another
failed miserably in its implementation
  ~ igniting 'uncivil riots' conflagrations.

Premium Member Questions
For me this has always been a most gnawing question.
Why do they sterilize the needles for lethal injections?
Are they afraid that the condemned will likely get an infection
and possibly file a wrongful death lawsuit eventually against them?
I wouldn't be surprised in this day of law legislation.
 
Here's a question most of you probably never considered. 
Why is abbreviation such a long word?
..and why did so many of those kamikaze pilots 
even bother to wear any of their helmets?...
