Arts Lab Writing            The Arts Lab: Writing            Arts Lab Photography


by Nevada Kerr

He had no clout when he was young
No power to persuade
He knew how to work his tongue
But he had nothing much to say

Now he has the means
To make bodies disappear
With an outline for a new regime
Of systematic fear

Cutbacks for the homeless
Lavish spending on the war
Before those bleeding liberals squander
All our money on the poor

Embryos are so much fun, gas is all the rage
Why should he care about the wind or sun
When there's a fetus he can save
And if the good guys get to keep their guns
Who needs a living wage
