1-6-21 B When Teddy called part 1

edited with Terese Taha’s thoughts in mind


When Teddy called this time

he spoke of how

Comrade Biden and Natasha Harris

and the words dripped from his mouth

like liquid candles

planned to rename this country

his country!


Union of American Socialist Republics!


He had to show

he said

because he knew

he knew!

K! N! E ! W!

there woule be mandatory no


and there was rough wind in his voice,

personatory vaccine requirements

for the good of all!!


Teddy, I stopped him,

slow down

your heart,

you’re not twenty anymore

or even thirty

maybe you should leave this

for the younger farts-

the voice of reasom,

like a fleeing duck.

was shot down






We would talk later,

we both decided

when one of us

would be able

to listen to reason
