Governor Cuomo Doesn’t Like Conservatives

Governor Cuomo

 

I live in New York but New York doesn’t live in me.

Governor Cuomo doesn’t like conservatives.

I don’t like him.

But I have nothing against run of the mill liberals

If they don’t find ideology more pragmatic

Than common sense.

If you hate me it’s my obligation to hate you back.

Forgiveness is cowardice,

Hiding from confrontation.

If I hit liberals in the head,

They’d be dead.

But no, no, no.

I’m too nice.

Being me will suffice.

Hatred is a progressive specialty

And I don’t shop at Zabar’s with the judgmental

Who want to overpay

For pickled herring.

The arrogance of a progressive is retrograde.

The progressive name is going forward but

The prejudice inherent is a reverse stick shift

On the Jaguar XKE my family owned when

I was seventeen.

Spare me from the hatred of liberals.

They are as opinionated as Muslims celebrating

Honor killings.

It’s not that Cuomo is stupid.

It’s just that his intelligence is aimed at retribution.

Well, cruel is a kind of stupid.

If you look at his eyes they turn in instead of out.

He sees the world through the eyeglasses of derivative opinions.
