Creative fun in
the palm of your hand.

Abcedarius entry for a poetry contest - slightly political
All hail, conquering heroes
(Be still my beating heart!)
Conquistadors of  conscience
Defenders of their art

Engage foes in repartee
Forge pathways through their sins
Going strong against the throng
Hypocrisy ne'er wins

I've listened every weekday
Just sitting there in awe
Kindled fury (liberals!)
Left wing to hang and draw

Message sent - the right to vent
Naught sacred - out of bounds
Opinions aired (hatred shared)
Particulars abound

Quiet ne'er the angry right
Release the madding crowd
Sincere views - the anger spews
Tis better heard aloud

Unbending their verbiage
Vice never far from mind
Wince not when you are skewered
X-rays of soul defined

You never know what they will say
Zero content - three times a day!
