FEAR AND HATING

napowrimo#3 for daily poem...prompt was fear or what scares you



FEAR AND HATING

a fear of travelling to some cemetery
in a long black limousine
with a group of assholes
who can't handle booze
Rush Limbaugh and the O'Reilly factor
crapping all over health care
as they nurse their rot gut
and broken souls
never confessisng to dirty hotel rooms
listening to Dr. Gonzo and Hunter Thompson
profoundly angry
arguing their shittrain of theories
about cue balls and circus people
suppressing their forest of fears
stress
violence
substance abuse
depression
insecurities of their minds
wondering what happened
to Oscar Acosta

I love the riff on Fear & Loathing, and that limo ride would be scary. Great lines:

"as they nurse their rot gut

Quite a list, Wayne. The limousine ride to the cemetery does sound frightening.

Wayne,
Throughly enjoyed this. It is kinda scary to think about. Now Rall why would think he is hiding at my place? I don't even live on the coast of Mexico. At least not anymore.;)
