Lethal Interjection

Lethal Interjection

A Poem by Robert Trakofler



__Lethal Interjections__

 

To all the sound bite intellectuals

With your meme sophistication

Stop painting me blue

With your careless brush

Stealing the oxygen from my veins

As I lie from lack of critical care

A victim of your threadbare blanket acceptance

Wrapping me in your chilled passion

I know you

You’re the guy who said

It was the Jew

Yes the reason for all this dread

Was the color of their heads

It must be true…

From a pamphlet, I had read

Oh but kilroy isn’t dead

He’s here lying on my bed

To skew the view

I used to suffer your thick heads

 And now-I- DO!

So it seems

According to the president

The only cure

Just might be

Is to inject some disinfectant

To paint me blue

With blue being the beautiful color it is (is there anything more beautiful than a clear blue sky stretching from horizon to horizon) It is a relief to know that Kilroy is not dead, although he must have been laying low waiting to see if he could agree with something the President may say because most of the statements he makes, sound like he is from a different planet.
Good morn and have a lovely day

You sound bitter here, Bunny. It sounds as though someone has put you down in some way, though I can't imagine who the "soundbite intellectuals" might be. Whatever, I wouldn't try the president's disinfectant cure. I mean, I have nothing against Lysol; it's not bad with vodka, but I don't like needles.

PS: Is the picture your gallery/restaurant? It looks impressive, even though some of the clientele seem to be skipping meals.

Kilroy was here.....and there I think! I guess you have had to close your dining area during the pandemic. I hope things are allowed to open up soon...albeit with limited occupancy. I not sure what your reference to someone of the Jewish faith means....unless it is what DeBlasio said a couple days ago. He should be ashamed of himself. Unfortunately, politicians rarely are. In any case, another poem of yours that made me think....that is always a good thing. Hope you are well, Robert. Lydi**

Aww! You were missed dear Bunny! This is such a funny, witty write and I love it! It's sad and funny at the same time and one often doesn't know whether to laugh or cry when our own great leaders come up with such wisdom. A lot has been written and read about injecting bleach into poor, covid-riddled veins lately and I enjoyed reading this poem so much in that context. We can smile a bit sometimes without forgetting the seriousness of the situation. Meanwhile, all must be done to bring back those wonderful people now in critical care. Stay safe my friend! Keep writing.

Nicely played, RobertPoet!

My pleasure, brother!
i get the feeling, now-a-days, that memory is being suppressed. That even our observance of the mindful customs of health/ or the sacrafice of it/ is lost in the ether of political regimen. "Did you hear what the president said", my mother asked me at 7:am in her 89 year old voice? Half asleep, I think she's gotten something wrong like whether she ate breakfast or not or if it's sunny outside, why is it not Sunday. But to extend an element of truth to any statement from the most important elected position on the planet earth, implies an irksome insistence that the King is law and the King is truth. I get the feeling, now-a-days, that memory is being suppressed. Great poem.....dana

It's not Trump's fault - Ivana Marie has been spiking his night time drink with 'sodium hypochlorite' for months now - and - he's been a bit confused as late...! Loved your piece; great satirical poetic humour, very timely and concise! :-)

Lethal interjections, a perfect title. :))

Seems to me there are as many 'expert' and non-expert opinions flying around as there are pills to swallow.

Personally, I am swallowing none of it, just keeping as safe a distance as I can from this nastry little gatecrasher of a virus, because as I understand it, without a host to latch onto, it'll leave the party.

Great observation on how stupid and uncaring of others, some folk are.

Beccy.

well ... freedom of the press and of expression is strong as ever in America .. i sadly know too well the "blue" you speak of, having spend many years as a RN in Intensive Care ... i totally agree with our very irresponsible press .. loving the crisis .. one after the other .. seemingly wanting things to be even worse ... the hinting and poking to blame the "gossip meme" ... trying so hard to ring the death knell ... quelling all but their own opinions .. i think our President is doing all he can sir .. hydroxychloroquine in use for decades for other maladies .. needs more study as applied to covid19 but hey ... pretty sure if that was all that was available and it was blue me under the tubes ... i would choose to use it .. why not? thanks for the forum ... well put lots of things in this says i! .. so healthy to express eh .. one of the many reasons poetry is such a gas :)))))))))
E.
ps. is that your Restaurant?? ..if so ... great job! reminds me of a very old biker bar in Savanna Illinois called "The Iron Horse Social Club" .. it has a few permanent bony customers such as yours ..i think you would fit in there easily Bad One :)

Oh, dear. It appears your dining gentleman has fallen victim to the hype. The gullibility of people does not stop surprising me. Why do adults need to be told that drinking bleach or injecting disinfectant are no-no's. If we have not learned these things by the time we are independent members of society our problems are bigger than an inept president.

When I saw the bit about uv light and injecting disinfectant, I thought DT was talking about cleansing corpses and I was horrified at the way he was talking about people's family members. But then I realized it was us, the live ones, who were the intended recipients. Not surprised at all. Just don't understand how the man still has any credibility.

The partisan bs that has emerged from this tragic circumstance we find ourselves in is quite distressing. There seems to be no end to the ways people seek to corrupt our societies with lies and propaganda. I am constantly surprised by how unfeeling and disconnected things get when people disagree.

It is all disheartening, and your poem expresses well the slippery slope we are on. The Holocaust (or any other large scale tragedy) didn't happen in one day. Things come slowly and creep in by degrees and people often don't recognize the darkness until it is too late. Sad moment we find ourselves in. Articulated well by you here.
