A Change of Luck

The Hypnotist My Grandfather brought most of his family to America in the 20’s. He had fought for the Germans in WWI and he and my Grandmother survived that and the 1918 Pandemic.

The Squib

The Squib! Lets take a dada-ist look at Donald Trumps goofy rug – I call it The Squib! That thing on Donald Trumps head Has a life of its own It wants to be cloned Neither man nor beast That yellow sewn on rug On that ugly orange mug That tuft will revolt Walk off from its job Leave that fat racist slob Chorus…

Icarus Complex (The Daedalus Myth)

The Schnaug

The Schnaug . . . He only comes out at night He’s an ankle biting dog A schnauzer and a pug dog mix They call him the Schnaug A schnauzer and a pug dog mix They call him the Schnaug He’s low to the ground and built for speed He weighs 300 pounds An under bite and very bad breath They call him the…
