Absurdum Redux?  

How’s he running for
anything other than
Exercise on Lompoc’s
or Leavenworth’s yard?

Could Boss Tweet apply for Hamlet Cat Catcher II?
Village Dog Poop Pickup Specialist I?
City bank teller, barista, or fast food worker? Preschool
teacher, or principal—minus rib-busting belly laughs?

Butter soft reprimands… Wrist-slap fines… Scream, “Rules
are for fools—Not stable genius-wise-guy wannabe Teflon
Dons!” They beg the question: Just what kinda Mike and Ike,
good cop-bad cop/duopoly con game are the rich running on us?

Half million COVID corpses fell like bottle flies
beneath his big top. Under his red nose, big shoe show.
35,000 lies reigned down daily. 13 were thrill-killed on his way
out the War House. 91 felony charges from 4 cases are his offering?

Is it “Alarmism” to call spearhead of J6 murder and mayhem an
Austrian painter’s avatar? “Hyperbole” to call banana Republican
in elevator shoes aiming to redact 1st, 4th, 15th, 20th and other

Is it “Hyperbole” to call “I am your retribution!” Pepe the Frog
fake Führer; Wannabe Mussolini; Viktor Moribund despot in
diapers—disdaining democracy/trumpeting totalitarian talking
points—a threat…?

Is it “Deranged” to scream… “Danger!” confronted with cruel snake
oil salesman; pussy-grabbin grifter;Walking conflict of interest;
Transactional pardon-peddler at 2 mil a pop; political play-thing
outside ‘investors’ have had by the shorthairs for decades?

Is it “Alarmism” to cry out about an infantile strongman/everything
Wrong man—craving capitalist state power as club and personal
ATM again? Or is it just another Ponzi-scheming politician—papered
with pomp and circumstance—sheep dipped in red state/blue state bosh?
Is this “Alarmism” or fables of fascism? Disinformation of Psy-
Op shops? Fox-box foot soldiers from troll farms flooding twilight
zones with dreck? Is it foolscap MAGAt worshippers praying his
name at altars of profit?

Is it just the usual donkey dung-elephant excrement-coated thru-line—
Slick Willy/W/Drone Ranger/Boss Tweet/Ol’ Schmo— fattening
portfolios of champagne-caviar constipated cults? Or, have they really
Arrived— like Monsanto— Roundup-ready for nights of the long knives?
