Alternate Facts ©

Hey Dude, wasn’t it bad?

Take a bad stance with news that bites deep;

Remember to shape it into what sounds

Almost true: you can do one better-

Hey dude, hurt is not hurt,

Leave that apart and make it fake news:

Remember no news is so true as it sounds
So you can start play with dem facts

Hey dude, photoshopping
With verve, make it stick,- crop it and paste!
The minute you have made white look black
Add your caption to make it better
Remember you cant spell right to let bad news
Get your goat! You are one helluva artist

Hey dude, don’t be afraid
You were made to make news so splash it….

My Tonsorial Musings ©

 

Imagine there’s no shavin’

It is easy if we let

No blade to hurt us;

Below nose only hair

Imagine sir,my goatee growing downwards!

Imagine there’s no saloons

It isn’t hard to do-
Barbers can take something else

Hirstute or not, they can dye

Hair,- frizz it, wave or curl!

Imagine all the people living in salons, you

You may say I’m a dreamer

But what dreams may come colour
me red,- some day you’ll understand
And the world will be all fair

Imagine no more split ends
I wonder birds nest in peace
In a beard full fathom five!

My follicles all-in health

No more wringing of hands, sir
Imagine all the birds on perch trilling, you

You may say I’m a dreamer

But what dreams may come colour
me red,- some day you’ll understand
And the world will be all fair.

The Power of Fake News ©

‘Twas not the best of news, but came ringing

It was plain mudslinging

Through Bannon’s Breitbart source:

Look how ‘Bama threw his force,

He had this wiretapping

He was for dirt hoping!

Happy, happy, happy few!
None but the sleaze,
None but the sleaze,
Alternate facts Oh fake news is nothing new!

2.

Where they go for news one cannot tell

Such fake news are from hell:

Take dem from horses’s mouth

Or from wire north or south.

A swamp they sure make of Capitol Hill

Happy, happy, happy few!

None but the sleaze,
None but the sleaze,
Alternate facts Oh fake news is nothing new!

Sonnet XVIII- To the White House

Shall I compare thee to a home from home
To which one moves in and leaves at the end?
Fame and fortune meet alike in a home

As stately home the White House do mend

Sometimes the pride of mien (in guests has charm)
But four years too long to keep their charade,

And are impeach’d or booted out at end of term;
And wise or fair in their stature surely degrade,
By chance, or people want change for change sake-
But thy pillars stand firm, You have seen it all

White House the Event for those who would make
To be seen, or led round though it were a ball.

So long as men can breathe, or eyes can see,
So long lives this, and this gives life to thee.

Day Watch -not by Rembrandt

img_3407It took Rembrandt one year or even more but we knocked it off in two weeks. On the left I added a boy eating nieuwe haring‘ and a young boy rushing with a plucked chicken.  Well given  time and chance I could have added more whimsies. Rembrandt must be turning in his grave.  -b
