For the 117th Congress
For the 117th Congress
Stop lying to us
about how you want to keep
our children safe.
You have the power to stop the
but you fail to act.
There are two factions in our people’s
the fascists and the feckless
To the Fascists:
You do not worship the same gods
Names like Jehova and Jesus
may spew out of your
dirty mouths like wastewater
from a chemical
plant into a flammable river,
but “where your treasure is,
there your heart be also.”
Your gods are guns, money, and power.
Your every action betrays your true heart.
Your gods demand regular child sacrifices.
You lay the bodies of our children on your
idolatrous altars and revel in
their broken bones, blood & guts,
and their mangled flesh.
Even the pleas of your armed
law keepers to keep weapons of
war off the streets have gone
Know that justice is coming for you.
Not the empty justice of
disappointed future academics
scolding the dead leaders of a bygone age,
Not the far off justice of a benevolent creator
who relies on eternal fire and millstones
The justice coming for you will be us.
The parents of the children whose lives
you casually gamble with because
of your lust for control and
zealous devotion to the evil high priests
of your true gods
guns, money, and power.
We will no longer allow you to purchase your
freedom to rule with the blood of our children.
To the Feckless:
You call the cops on sidewalk chalk artists and hide
in your marble temple of corruption instead of
taking action on the people’s business.
You promise to pass bills when you get back from vacation.
You shrug and tell us there’s nothing you can do–the
fascists won’t let you take away their weapons of war.
Throw your bodies between the gun-worshipping wackos
and our children.
Pass bills, hold hearings, take the legislative process hostage
until action on guns is taken.
Propose Constitutional amendments to clarify
the right to bear arms is not the right to wield weapons of war
Fill the Supreme Court with women and men free
from the influence of the fascist cult threatening our democracy
You will lose more than you win.
Courts will rule against you. The
forces of Hell with meet you at every turn
Make gun control an issue in every election
from school board to senator
from president to public works director
Know that justice is coming for you too.
Not the justice of the mob but
the justice of the angry electorate
We will end your careers and hold you
accountable as accessories to the terror
you enable by your cowardice
