The Wake-up Slap

April 7, 2022

Could not come soon enough

To arouse the living dead

From their narcissistic

Self serving slumber that

It is not okay to be a bully

Sharp, blunt, fast or slow

Words are only words or

What one was supposed

To have learned is…….

“Sticks and stones may

Break my bones, but

“WORDS” will never hurt me,”

Or my wife, or my feelings

Regardless of who

Makes those words audible

Least of all, a comedian using

The tools of their trade to

Build content from context

To inspire laughter and thought

“Will Smith just smacked the shit out of me”


“I didn’t know that this year was
going to be the most exciting Oscars ever!”

– Chris Rock

“When you change the way

You look at things,

The things you look at change.”

– Dr Wayne Dyer

What if Michelle Wolf

Delivered those lines

Making a movie reference

Some twenty five years old

To a beautiful bald woman

In a role with a hairless head

Or another “Rock”, Dwayne Johnson

All of the outcomes

Would have been entirely different

(If Will Smith hitting Chris Rock

Sounds funny, consider replacing

Will Smith with Airplanes and

Chris Rock with The Twin Towers)*

* FB meme

Not so funny now is it

Had the same words come

Out of either Michelle or Dwayne’s mouth

My guess is Will, would have


For the sake of perspective though

If it were the words that caused “harm”

And Will stormed the stage

To intentionally assault Michelle Wolf

Security and or some of the

Self-agrandizing audience would

Have subdued the emotionally

Unbalanced actor instantly

Had it been Dwayne saying those words

A. Will may have had his head
Handed back to him or

B. Will would have remained seated

To actually “tend” to his wife to

Sooth and nurture Jada’s feelings

As Robin Quivers on the Howard Stern show

So clearly and eloquently observed

If his wife, was actually his concern

How ironic is it that the “Wake-up Slap”

Came from the allegedly “woke”

Though they quickly turned a blind eye

To the violence right in front of them

“Just an observation,
Maybe I need
Different glasses.”

– Angelo Devlin
