Funeral Songs for the Generals
by Nkwachukwu Ogbuagu

Drums for us, the wasted Masters
Catafalques for them, covetous Generals.

How far have they gone in wasting us,
In ruining our harvests —
Bloodsucking Generals with shrivelled scrotums?

Crowned predators.
Embellished idiots.
Distinguished poachers —

Brexit
by Nkwachukwu Ogbuagu

I hardly brew coffee alongside the metaphor of
English mornings blended with summer’s febrile breath.
But, on this occasion, I did....
It was a stifling moment on television.
The social media was abuzz with the hiss of
Integrated journalism. I hated this moment I failed to believe myself
Upon the altar of this recent toponym. BREXIT.
The name plinks with resounding voices, exerting that energy of
Political consciousness.
Lexicographers must hasten it into the dictionary

Confrontations
by Nkwachukwu Ogbuagu

A broken mirror, shattered and dispersed,
Reflects mangled images of stooges
And incoherent looters of national treasures.

The soul of a nation, so broken, so dispersed,
Plunges head above waters into distressed,
Calamitous caverns of the deep.

Bubbles rustle from tumults fomented through
Throats of riparian greed, when the fishy plots

The Refugee Never Lied
by Nkwachukwu Ogbuagu

Burning fresco of a new-image rainbow
has glint and farewell lines for
departing birds...

The refugee pledges oaths
against lies towards the arch of a
gleaned pathway

The Way-between links Sodom
with by-way museums of salt in

At the Cathedral
by Nkwachukwu Ogbuagu

At the Cathderal
one dusk,
the general image,
that of receding
glint of the sun's lair

The cupola of the basilica,
the basis of its strength;
the idyll-lined frames
for green verse

The Coronation of Trump
by Dr. Robert Ippaso

A coronation, watched by our entire great nation,
Some with trepidation, others boisterous jubilation.
Trump feted, his fawning family silhouetted,
Basking in his light, his confidence and might.

This Grand Old Party, it's followers vociferous and hearty,
Anointing their chosen man, to rule their ever-growing clan;
No harm to love a cause, giving thought and sometimes pause,
To what this passion brings, the words the siren sings.

The Boxer - in Trumps own words
by Dr. Robert Ippaso

I play by the rules day in and day out,
Showing my class, wielding my clout.
I take the hard blows time and again,
Knowing my patience shan't be in vain.

Joe's on the ropes, all by himself,
Waiting around to be dumped on the shelf,
Restraint is my friend, as I pull back and watch,
Those flailing wild jabs I so easily dodge.

Bidens Quandary
by Dr. Robert Ippaso

Mumbling, stumbling, inaudible rambling,
The pity, the pain all but Biden now feel,
A spent man bereft, resorting to grumbling,
The fishing line out for opponents to reel.

How did we now reach this insufferable place,
Where a once wily Joe spun his fine web,
Enticing, enveloping with street gotten grace,
His mock Irish banter making folks fall in step.

An Imperfect Union
by Dr. Robert Ippaso

Where to now, uncharted waters,
Two men vying, two men scheming,
Biden gloating, Trump now reeling,
Storm clouds gathering, eyes aloft.

So much anger, consternation,
A million words spewed every day,
Talking heads intent to sway,
Incessant noise drowning our senses.
