Touch My Justice, Redux

« previous entry | next entry »

Touch my justice,
my pulsing righteousness.
Touch my justice.
It throbs for you.

I have a raging phone bill,
filled with raised fists.
My Che Guevara desktop
glows, and resists.

I will hotbox your summit
toke upon toke.
Ganja versus teargas,
revenge of the smoke.

Nothing can stop the music.
Take off your pants.
It's time to strum our guitars.
Naked line dance.

Touch my justice.
It's the least you can do.
Touch my justice,
before it fondles you.

Constituency –balls!
Check out my flarf.
Legislature –balls!
Keffiyeh scarf.

Doublespeak omnibus
every hour.
I'll wedgie your bafflegab
the seat of your power.

Cultural battle zone.
Choose your side today.
High-contrast monochrome.
No shades of gray.

I will not get up early.
Dreaming is free.
I will eat more Kraft dinner.
Freedom ain't cheap.

Touch my justice,
my turgid righteousness.
Touch my justice
–please wear this pin.

Ok, seriously, this is pretty clever. I noticed it said redux - how close to the finished are you, do you think?

Thanks, Jill.

"Touch My Justice" was originally a line I came up with as part of a Van Slam team piece called "Stall Scrawl". Nora screamed it death metal style. It was pretty epic. It's redux because I'm bringing it back. You can always plagiarize yourself, right? It's pretty much finished.

I take it you're running for office?

Which brings me to: will you be my campaign manager and produce a series of horrorshow black and white attack ads, slandering all my opponents? I've decided to run a smear campaign against Che Guevara. I figure he's an easy target because he's already dead and thus unlikely to sue me.

'free' and 'cheap' is a slant rhyme.

The last stanza is the chorus which doesn't rhyme.

Lovely!

Do women have injustices, then?

I'm now mourning the unborn disturbing team piece we would create.

It really would make a wonderful musical.

We could have the anarchist Black Block as background dancers.
