Hark, The Snake Oil Angels Sing!


Hark, the snake oil angels sing!

Russia’s tsar rides on our king.


Bullshit here and beefcake there –

bovine voters everywhere.


Joyful greedheads make stocks riseΒ  –

Rust Belt workers fall for lies.


Hark, the snake oil angels sing!

Russia’s tsar rides on our king.

    • The imagery your poem inspired was like a runaway faucet; it over flowed, baby! Send in more poems please. We’ll have at least 4 years of hell with which to contend — less if my prayers are answered. Thank you, Mel!!

  3. Goodness gracious. πŸ™‚
    I’m not quite sure what exactly you two are referencing here, but I certainly did enjoy seeing the Curmudgeon unleashed in all his lyrical splendour, and as always the artistic stylings of Raging Rose.
    You guys are sexy when you’re angry. πŸ™‚

    • America’s soon to be “leader” and the murderous arse of Russia are very close friends, it would appear. Mel, I believe, did a superb job at being creative in his true depiction of what’s happening to our great country. Humor is one of the things that’s going to help us cope.

      Raging Rose? Lol. I’ll have to work on some art for that depiction. Thanks for always reading and commenting, Og. Very much appreciated! πŸŽ„πŸ’‹

  7. As we are still in the 12 days of Xmas, I decided to get the effect of reblogging this (but with more control than the [Reblog] button provides).

  8. Nice combination of words and music! (I just wish the subject matter weren’t so terrifying.) πŸ™‚
