Piss and Vinegar~by Paul Lenzi



Piss and Vinegar


“Outrage” by Charles Pollock

what madness it is

to tie up the tongue

to hold back the temper

to stopper your cruets

piss and vinegar need to

be poured and not stored

disinfectants for bullshit

set burn to the bombast

whet words to an edge

cut and slash like a pirate

possessed at pc absurdity

who but the blunt honest

common sense principled

critic can rescue society

free it from strangling

within its own clutches

let fly with just outrage

put the bastards on notice

enough is enough time

to take back control from

those solipsist satraps

paternalist pen-pushers

deaf dumb and blind

central planners of life

stealing freedoms

wherever they find them

so please let the cleansing

acerb piss and vinegar flow



From my book Onionskin
