Pesky Words

We have a president who insists on taking us back to a day without science, and perhaps into a future of oppression. Here is a list of words his administration has banned the Centers for Disease Control from using in future budget proposals:

Similarly, our Florida governor, Rick Scott, has forbidden the use of the term “climate change” among members of our state government, as if banning words could make the reality behind them go away.

So, let’s also ban these words:








There. That should do it. Pesky words.

Seriously, who bans words? Oh, we all know the answer to that. I’m sure North Korea has a long list of words that are illegal to use. Trump’s friend, Putin most likely has a tablet filled with words his people aren’t allowed to utter in public.

Can we panic now? Or will panic be banned, as well?

Peace, people. Please don’t ban peace.

Burn, Baby, Burn

Burn, Baby, Burn

There’s a fire out in the pasture, so sound the great alarm, it’s crackling down the corn rows, now threatening the barn.

We’d fight the fire with water, but the well dried long ago, now it’s too late to save the farm, and we’ve no place to go.

So hurry, save the chickens, the horses, and the rest, so they can perish another day when we fail the next big test.

Dire warnings were extended by experts in the know, but the idiots ignored them and allowed the fires to grow.

For profits’ sake we’ll pay the price, the ultimate tragic loss, while politicians fiddle a tune for their new greedy boss.

Note: I thought I had this scheduled to post on Earth Day.
