Fatback

I joked
that we should
do a fundraiser
to buy a politician,
and I pictured
covering one of those
dead-eyed
fat little bitches
in baby oil
and seeing how many
dollar bills
we could slap
and stick to them
while they made
throaty squeals
of greed and contentment,
then swallowed the rage
to appear sane.

But seriously.
We should raise some “speech”
and buy our voice back.
That’s not cynical.
It’s pragmatic.
