Rudolph Agonistes (2009)
Red nose my ass. It was budget cuts. The haunts of Christmas Town are shut by drifts. Santa even took out the candy stripe pole.
Incomplete toys pile up on the workshop floor like unread Milton
or water from former glaciers or war on earth not peace.

OxymoronI think some big guySneezed, “A Just War.”What’s worse, he wasBeing given a peace prize.Poor and hungry,Bitter and envious,Whoever he calls enemyCome from our own country.There are alwaysPlenty of excusesFor beating up the kidWho took all the marbles.Let us all join handsAnd agree to disagreeExcept for those whose spiteSets off a nuclear bomb.[Disposable Poem December 10, 2009 ]Dr. Mike
"The proliferation of mass media at the end of the nineteenth century and the congruent development of widely distributed celebrity cultures, further multiplied the channels through which this kind of infection might spread to a reading public eager to revel in the public exposure of private scandal." [Latham , Sean. The Art of Scandal, 15].
