Rousing Rebel Gal

Rousing Rebel Gal

by Jay S. Levy

Yellowed nicotine stained Jersey girlprotest
Spatting out ferocious laughter as the flag unfurls
Patriotic protoplasm – She looks at with disdain
Neo-Nazi egotists have led the USA
Paranoia sprayed upon the barren wall blockades
Born again lunatics claimed to be saved!

Screw you – Boys in Blue
Leaders of the untrue

Kiss my A! – CIA
Planning another raid?

Adolescent, clandestine, independent girl
A seductive intelligence permeates her world
Well read, well-fled, Spartan tongue unfurls
A moody tattooed embittered-sweet ale
Radiating, palpitating, exonerating friend
A convalescent bond that will one day end
