Puke-Free Zones

Bad things happen as our neighbor lost his big toe to a lawn mower

April was hot for O Sang-Hon who was executed by flame-thrower

Into a grave his charred remains will have to, by sling, be put lower

May as well kill his kids & his wife & anyone who might know her

Certainly a cur dog show would have a category for best show cur

Girls will die going into the ongoing event gone bad: You Go Girl!

In foreign puke-free zones signs must translate to DO NOT HURL

At one time any hoser in a ball gown was funnier than Milton Berle

sashaying in high-heel shoes with Milton's whorish, swishing twirl

chattering, spattering & foaming like a hydrophobic, rabid squirrel

Poet's Notes about The Poem

“Cancer is virtually nonexistent in Vietnam, amongst other places, as the Vietnamese eat a regular diet of Amygdalin/cyanide-rich bamboo, flax seeds, millet & sprouts. No environmental & familial factors come to bear. The A.M.A./F.D.A. will NEVER spoil what they've so carefully wrought for the U.S.: a nation with the highest cancer rates in the Western World. Let us find solace & pain relief in consensus, tenure & peer review.”
— Richard Thripp

“Not one single degenerative disease ever suffered by a human was due to a deficiency in a prescription drug.” — Dr. Daniel Duffy
'In the absence of minerals, vitamins have no function. Lacking vitamins, the system can make use of minerals, but lacking minerals, vitamins are useless.' — Dr. Charles Northern
