Obama, please come to dinner.
You’ve just won the election, and we’re mainly vegetarian, but, I think you’re up for it.
We have a new apartment, and it’s very spacious.
Everyone in our neighborhood has been screaming your name, but if you come, I’ll make enough food for all of your secret service, too.
And apple pie, because it’s American.
The trick is cinnamon.
And not punching the pastry to death.
Anna Ruth Nirmala Jones
Beware an Idiot
They will make you one of them
If you don’t watch out.
A type of leech
blessed with speech,
An Idiot makes Idols
Out of every Everyman
Who wants to be prized as priceless.
An Everyman becomes an Idol by Idiots
like a pleasant drip into an open vein
The Leeches drip an Everyman full
Until Everyman is swollen with cheap love
Then he is fed
Sweet, innocence to swell a belly but leave a man thirsty
It’s whiskey and sawdust sipped in a sec
A nightcap to put a man down
Everyman is an Idiot too
And wakes up to Idolize the Idiots who delivered him Home.
Beware an Idiot.
Perry Mansfield is in July
Perry Mansfield is in
Who will hear all the music and words
That Aaron and I and all of the kids
That’s why the mountains are so big.
They listen to music all the day long by Perry Mansfield.
