Calling Bullshit on Nazis—A Poet's Take

Love isn't all you need, it's all you have, S.R. Karfelt
S.R. Karfelt/The Glitter Globe



When you say white pride
what i hear
is
We used to be boss
& it looks cool
on old TV
let's have that back again
cause work and books is hard

I wanna be Super Mario boss
Bowser big

The only time I entertain
clan genetics
is when you
talk
white pride
I worry for
your damaged helix

Crusty chromosomes
DNR DNA

But let's never judge
your family for
the stupid you
found in that bag
of Doritos
when watching
black and white
TV

Mustached hate
Free-ride fate

When the dim bulb lit
illuminating only
empty crumbs and white
fingers
tipped in cheeto orange
That's all I got
Stupid 'splained
to hungry brains
white and all gone

Pigment deficient
Me-mine proficient

You missed the memo
long delayed
nothing special's
in that skin
without work
uncomfortable effort
on a level colorful
playing field

My precious
As if

If your momma forgot
to say
you can do hard
work
you can 
not
rise and whine

I'll have what she's having
Shitter's full, Clark

White means
Ancestors from colder climes
Dark means
Ancestors from warmer ones
Tell me now
Who's was smarter

Frankly my dear I don't give a damn
Toto I've a feeling we're not in Kansas anymore

If'n you can't 
do words or work
get outta the way
of rainbow muscle
that will

Nobody puts baby in the corner
I feel the need, the need for speed

Yes
we pay
for the sins of
our fathers
everyone does

Elementary my dear Watson
You're gonna need a bigger boat


It's not fair
life
too bad.
ask the rainbow


you have been weighed you have been measured
and you absolutely have been found
wanting
brave new world





If'n I was foaming at the mouth a tad when I wrote this, it probably doesn't show.


The above picture caught my eye during my travels earlier this summer. It hangs on a wall in a MONASTERY

Translated from Greek, the blurb below it reads: 
A German soldier is taken down in an unsuccessful attempt to
raise the swastika flag on the rocky Megali Agia precipice
in Meteora

Can't you just picture a monk using a Gandalf staff to sweep the legs out from under a Nazi? Until the picture I would've assumed that'd be metaphorical. Monk says, as if.

Bam that brother. Fist bump if you can feel me. 



quotes from lord of the rings, clueless, when harry met sally, christmas vacation, gone with the wind, wizard of oz, dirty dancing, jaws, top gun, sherlock holmes, and a knights tale
