The World’s End



It is not disrespectful to call the President a jerk.

It is disrespectful to elect a jerk as president.


It is disrespectful

To the moon, the sun, the stars

And all clichés of the world as the world is,

As it turns,

As it is traditional and stable.


When a moron goes to a mullah to suggest

Nuclear compromise

We will find that Obama has misplaced


Into the world popping out of his naïve approaches

Like toast out of the world’s toaster.


And what is John Kerry doing at the table when

He always sided with our enemies,

Pointed his witch’s chin at American soldiers’

Torture in Vietnam


And never said a word about the Viet Cong

Ripping off American fingernails,

Cutting off our eyelids

And circumcising us with machetes?


So Kerry is representing Obama in Lausanne and  Paris.

Paris is known for fashion.

Kerry is giving away the store.

He is spending at the shops and taking home nothing.


I once bought three mink coats near the Ritz.

Kerry is purchasing the Emperor’s new clothes.



George Costanza tells a coworker,

“Well the Jerk Store called, and they’re running out of you.”

Unfortunately, they are not running out of Kerry and



In order to do something large they will incinerate the planet.

When narcissism out trumps survival

Sadness becomes the trumpet of our own shame.


Obama’s Affordable Health Care Plan was large.

He didn’t know what he was doing.

Large is the size of his failure.


I hope Kerry enjoys his mushrooms at La Maison de la Truffe.

He is soliciting  a Hiroshima Mushroom cloud to cover New York.
