Global Warring

Toadies fawn, fawners toady, farmers tote and toters farm adoringly
Whores of distinction distinguish twixt bum and prophet alluringly
No common market trade imbalance, even enunciated imploringly
sways these trulls from street-level antics with wily tourists touring
To all sailors on the seas & to those whose grand ship are mooring
Scotch your trousers, couch recriminations & scour before scoring
Frills & fireworks can't make a wacky, boring bitch 1% less boring
Please assess my expansively-expensive-tongue-&-groove flooring
Help yourself to 3 crabby apples,4 of which are in need of coring
When not matrimonially engaged to women I enjoy global warring
then touring, & perhaps drowsy, intermittently-unregulated snoring
saving Green Stamps, stuffing full my jowls with acorns for storing
Every day is Wednesday when you share a bed with ole Lisa Loring
In reverence to Christian Faith: Lisa won't drop acid when whoring
Satellites that track her movements are props unworthy of ignoring
Testifying shit with verbosity, crap by veracity, as truth by perjuring

Poet's Notes about The Poem

LESBIMONIAL (lesbian testimonial) : It started at age 16 when I accepted a pop tart from a man dressed as a lesbian. That popped tart led to a dinner date invitation from a grouplet of lesbian-marriage-promoting lesbians. Dare I take the next step? I dare! Before black history month was overwhelming I had dined with more lesbians than most people dine with in a year!
