Compassion Crumbles

by Max Bouillet

Suppose we burn up all the books -just send them straight to hell.
Pour gasoline upon the fire; and watch them liberals turn pale.
Incite mass hatred in the youth; watch 'em cuss and watch 'em spit.
"Rally 'round the bonfire, boys; we won't take their foolish shit."
I just know they're out to get us; so let's hate 'em to the core.
The time has come. The time is now, to start a bloody war!

(Of course we'll let the records show; the enemies in the wrong before we go!)
(Forget being gentle, it's time to get tough; and while we're there we'll just steal all his stuff!)

The enemy just ain't that smart. I hear tell he's just a half-wit.
He's out to kill ya though -him and those friends he's with.
Even though they may look human -they're not. I ain't telling ya no tale.
Look it, if this ain't enough to get ya to fight; we'll just throw your ass in jail.
And don't ya go and worry, boy; about your ma and pa
We'll tell 'em how brave ya were, and you were just abidin' by the law.


Author's Note: This is an attempt at a Rhyming Double Acrostic. The first letter of each line speaks a message, but so does the last letter of each line. Please understand that this is sarcastic in nature. I am not advocating war or the inciting of the youth.

Hi Max, I'ld say you pretty much have the sarcasm. Ya must have been pretty ticked off at someone too. Rough stuff in there, ya know. That will certainly get people stirred up. So may like it too. Looks like ya got pretty wild with it. I see I'm not the only one uses ya too & other stuff. Hee! Hee!

sarcasm at it's greatest... "spirit of the law"... "letter of the law"... pure genius... brilliant and catchy verse... well written... blessings...

A shame you couldn't be confident that this would be read in the spirit in which it was created...but then again, perhaps if that was the case, you wouldn't feel the need to write it? :>) A double irony to keep the sarcasm company - adult entertainment at it's best.
