On Robert Frost’s Birthday

Robert Frost

Fire and Ice

Some say the world will end in fire,
Some say in ice.
From what I’ve tasted of desire
I hold with those who favor fire.
But if it had to perish twice,
I think I know enough of hate
To say that for destruction ice
Is also great
And would suffice.

—Robert Frost

Fire and Frost

Some say the world will end in fire,
Some say in frost.
From what I’ve tasted of desire
I hold with those who favor fire.
But if in one I’m to be tossed
I think I know enough of hate
To say that for destruction frost
Is also great
To get me lost.

—B. N. Faraj (As if you can’t tell!)

God’s Gift to Humanity

trump-gods-gift-to-humanity

A rapist wants to build a wall
Because he cares about us all

And claims to want to give us hope
To fuck around, abuse and grope

We’re thrilled, aroused and just can’t wait
For him to make the country great

He gropes and fucks with no regrets
He feels no shame while barking threats

A businessman who wipes his debts
And robs the poor and cheats the vets

A gift from God he seems to think
But can’t explain the awful stink

It’s easy! God just took a dump
And blessed us all with Donald Trump.
