MAN IN PAIN


ReadWritePrompt #88 using all the prompt words




MAN IN PAIN


lights out
ready to rumble and BRISTLE
his hi-fi microphone
sitting on the lazer structure
with its organice DIODE on

biting his bloody lips
FROTH coming from his mouth
ready to RANT
spoon feed his faithfull listeners
with rancid ELOCUTION

ridiculing the loony left
as they HITCH-hike their free ride
FLINGING his COARSE insults
with words that COAGULATE
like RANCID butter

always preaching his SALACIOUS desires
that echo to the converted
then rushing out HOMEWARD bound
elizabeth alexander's poem on his 8-TRACK
and more oxycontin for a man in pain

Did you capatalize the words for our reference or is it contributing to the meaning of the poem overall?

Powerful use of the words.

briarcat said...

Clever, clever, clever. (you missed the caps on 8-track?)

I see you feel the same way about Limbaugh as I do. Only one thing left out of your poem: Glenn Beck. Tragically this made me smile, couldn't laugh, too much truth.

Cynthia Short said...

very astute, very cynical, very good...

Derrick said...

I'm not familiar with Mr Limbaugh and, from this, maybe that's a good thing!

Nathan said...

"Rancid elocution" indeed!

And, Derrick, you're very lucky.

Francis Scudellari said...

An extremely creative use of the words... and a very fitting "portrait" of Mr. Limbaugh.

I loathe Lumbaugh with a passion...

So, needless to say I loved this. And, it is well done. Lovely sentiment...for a man who is a pain.

Puddles is my contribution.

wayne enjoyed the defamation of rush in this one, a prick that i wish would fall off. thought your use of "hitch" with "hike" was unique and savvy. always enjoy the read, well done here wayne. -lawrence

Burn that hypocritical, divisive waste of human DNA, flame the bastard straight to hell. Want to know how I really feel...

Fine piece my friend, and I hope your partner is well on the mend.

Where I live there is only one radio station in English, and at just about the time I am going home from school, Limbaugh is the only person on. So I might listen, but it always ends the same way- with me screaming aaaarrrrrghhhh or worse and punching off the radio. I love your poem. You have captured this man very well indeed.

Nice one

Nice use of the words. Mine ended up circling around talk radio also. You nailed the grand poobah himself. Well done.
