STUFFED With Irony

November 19, 2018

Including sliced hypocrisy

Chopped up reality

Diced dichotomy

Shredded humanity

With broken bread

Toasted

Combined together and

Jammed up in the

Eagle’s carcass

As “Thanksgiving” approaches

Along with the “Caravan”

Homeless, country less

Weaponless, partly shoeless

“What” an invasion?

What “timing”

Even with a distant

Not so distanced reminder

“Give me your tired,
your poor,
Your huddled masses
yearning to breathe free,

The wretched refuse
of your teeming shore.
Send these, the homeless,
tempest-tossed to me,

I lift my lamp beside the golden door!”

– “Statue of “”Liberty”” poem.

 

.
Will it be served warm

To the new guests

Or like unwarranted

Revenge

Served cold, or

Discarded out of spite

By an uncompassionate

Angry racisct narcissistic

Xenophobic

Head chef

 

You know what I wonder?

I wonder W T F W J D?

Thanksgiving :

Celebrating the day, Americans fed undocumented aliens from Europe

– Facebook meme

.

This land is not your land

This land is not my land

It was stolen from

The Mexican and Indian

.
From the burnt down forest

To the oil slick water

This land was decimated

By you and me

.
White people, when you landed on Plymouth Rock……….
You did not have a visa.”

.
– Carlos Mencia

Benjamin Franklin wrote a letter to his daughter in which he disapproves of the country adopting the bald eagle as our national symbol. He claims that the drawing that had been produced looked like a turkey anyway and that such a bird would actually be preferable to the eagle.

Franklin explained that the bald eagle had a “bad moral character” and was a “rank coward” that merely steals from other birds.

About the turkey, Franklin wrote that in comparison to the bald eagle, the turkey is “a much more respectable Bird, and withal a true original Native of America…He is besides, though a little vain & silly, a Bird of Courage.”

So although Benjamin Franklin defended the honor of the turkey against the bald eagle, he did not propose its becoming one of America’s most important symbols.
