Susan L Daniels:

I thought this might be apropos. How egotistical is it to reblog yourself–poem is good for a snicker or two, I think.

the elephant in the room
none of us want to talk about
is trumpeting morals
like he invented them

he is for saving the unborn
& eager to kill them
when they grow up–
call it war or capital punishment–

he’s all for chucking science
out the window
and teaching adam & eve
in the classroom

(in matters of faith
whose truth do you honor
in a nation like ours?
Why, the elephant’s,
of course).

the elephant
we won’t talk about
is sitting on unions,
on women,
the poor
& on gays

he’s all for you keeping your gun

so you can shoot yourself
when you get sick–

it’s cheaper that way.

About Susan L Daniels

I am a firm believer that politics are personal, that faith is expressed through action, and that life is something that must be loved and lived authentically--or why bother with any of it?
