No longer hidden
instruments of discretion,
these bullets, shot straight
through this red state rhetoric
will bring some needed freshness

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?

  1. I’m afraid the significance of this is lost on me. Is it a reference to that spoof website claiming there are palns to legislate against tampons? Just wondered is all.

  2. politicians – they never cease to repulse me – what insanity

    *snicker* There were the generals in Myanmar who feared women’s underwear, and now we have our very own leaders on the run from tampons. Who knew?

    Not much makes me even giggle out loud at my computer… but this made me laugh. The picture and the poem are PERFECT together. Perfect commentary on the insanity that has grown among us. LOVE it! 🙂

  8. This is too funny Susan. America? Then what would one expect from Africans? We must be excused for our ‘backwardness’ then.
