Godzilla vs. Giant Eagle by Will Ringland

Godzilla vs Giant Eagle
(With apologies to Godzilla who is less destructive)

The radicalized bird Hit me first, hit
us. I hit back and maybe harder
than it hit me. I would say not all of them
are terrorists but...
the ones that would fly in
could fly in present a major issue

You think ISIS is not going to put birds?
ISIS is going to put birds there. We've been
attacked pretty viciously.
I will tell you, we have to be in a position where
that never, ever, ever,
ever happens.

Birds can take out the East Coast
Birds can take out the Midwest,
Birds can take out things that were unthinkable.

I’m not creating the fear. People are living in fear.

I'm not scared; the birds are seriously
beautiful. But extra cranky.

Good People Just Don't Go Into Politics by Will Ringland

So I dithered on posting this for fear of offending people, even though I like what I wrote. I'm chosing to post it not that I don't care but because I was hesitant and because I like it. Ultimately, I write for me more than I write for you (and for the fist time I say that with conviction and truth).

I also find it funny because I had zero hesitation posting a poetry about giant, monster dicks. That was a little silly. This? I dunno? A greatly feared truth?

Anyway. I'm sorry if you're offended; you have every right to be. It is, after all, political poetry.

Good people just don't go into politics.


in a room lit with mockery
the man with the astonishing coiffure
pounds a fist full of
old glory against his cock
It doesn't matter
what the media write
as long as
you've got a young
and beautiful piece of ass.
