Political Outreach

 

Watcher©

“Watcher” – © chriscondello 2013 – Natural sculpture of Stone – Frick Park – Pittsburgh, PA – Created with the scattered stones around me… Solidly stacked and off the beaten path… This sculpture will last a long time…

Fiery breath of God wipes the desert clean…
Eliminate the pestilence… Destroy the serene…
God does not speak English… Bombs don’t preach…
The only thing that matters is the curriculum we teach…

Whoever has the youth… Has the future…
Whoever breeds the most… Has the future…
Whoever kills the most… Has the future…
Whoever builds the biggest pipeline… Destroys our future…

How am I supposed to pretend… How do I deny…
Everything in politics is a big fucking lie…
I hate the commercials… Hate the constant knocks…
Personally… I vote based on the size of their cocks…

You laugh… But it’s just as relevant as what’s on tv…
Sit on the toilet and listen to your pee…
Splash into the voting pool…

Pool… Really… That’s all I am to you…
Of course that’s all I am…

To you…

A vote…
A record…

Well… A criminal record…

So… To the politicians… I say… Fuck you…

You don’t deserve my vote…
You don’t deserve my time…
You really don’t deserve…
My carefully worded rhyme…

But today you got it…
And as quickly as I wrote this rhyme about you…
I will forget you…

Today at work I am removing ivy…
Invasive… Like politics…

Ivy needs to stay the fuck out my yard…
Like politics need to stay the fuck out my house…
