POETS & WRITERS STAND AGAINST TRUMP
POETS & WRITERS STAND AGAINST TRUMP  : JANUARY 20th, 2017 AT 8PM

On Friday, January 20th Donald J. Trump will be sworn in as The President of the United States of America.

This will be a very sad day indeed. And as poets and writers everywhere we need to speak up and say what needs to be said, and share those words with our nation and the world.

So here’s what we do.

At EXACTLY 8pm on the evening of Friday, January 20th I’m asking all my friends and fellow writers and poets to simultaneously all post a poem or prose piece against the election and presidency of Trump. Post it on Facebook, Twitter, Tumblr, WordPress …

EVERYWHERE.

That’s it, that’s all we need to do but we must all be united in this protest.

No matter who you are, what country, what race or what nationality this is the moment to Stand Against Trump.

All I ask?

Tag the bottom of your posts with these words that say we stand together.

Please join me, spread the word and invite all other writers and poets.

Death Is Open For Business

DEATH IS OPEN FOR BUSINESS

First?

I stopped by for Emily
And then for all her friends
Sometimes (over the years)
I still forget all their
Names

Writers, poets
Actors & the commonplace
Of sorts, and the royalty always
Received special discounts
And deals

You see you might know me
I’ve been doing this for awhile
I used to keep scrolls
But now that’s just embarrassing
So I just use my phone
And everybody still
Knows my name
Maybe you’ve seen my
Profile on FB?
All the people
Talking about me

Damn .. I’m really popular

Because
Black is out and
Neon is in
I started the trend
By the way

And all the celebrities
Are just dying to
See me as always

So if you’re a famous
Rockstar please don’t
Message me or text me
I’m quite busy

And I don’t do
Crossroads pacts
Anymore
I only accept straight up cash

With no middle men

And these days
As you may have
Already guessed
I only  mostly deal directly with
Businessman & politicians

So got a problem?
Wanna be the president?
I’m willing to cut you
A deal

Btw? Did I mention
I’m on FB?

I’ve traded in my
Scythe for a credit card
Of souls and I
Make my withdrawals
Daily

So are you next
On my list?

Wouldn’t you like to be?

What?
The Reaper?
Pllllleeeeaaasssse …
I don’t go by that
Old fashioned name
Anymore

It’s been overused
Blue Oyster Cult & their more cowbell
Saw to that

Nope.

Nowadays
I simply call myself
An extraordinary broker
Of souls

(So let’s talk)

Because death
Is open for business

So
Here’s my card
Expect my call
I’ll be waiting
To meet you

Eventually
Everyone does
