Author's Note

Carlos Lorenzo Estrada
Pryor or Carlin? Yeah right, like I would ever choose the greatest social satirist in comedy history. Can't we all just get along and agree they are both great. I mean really why so much hate between both sides. Huh? What? You mean people aren't arguing because of the state of political satire? What are they mad about then? Actual social issues? Gee....what a joke! Feel free to write, or if you are suffering from a case of idiocracy, phil freee 2 rite. Or comment, or troll.

How true, Carlos.

Pryor and Carlin would be thrown off the stage today. Everything is way too PC for my tastes. There is so much hypocrisy coming from both sides of the aisle these days. Taking a step back and watching is sometimes quite entertaining. I liked this one, Carlos. Lydi***

This is hilarious! With the abortion rights thing going on in the U.S, this poem is kind of ironic. You shouldnt kill an unborn baby, BUT you should definately go maskless when there is a deadly virus on the loose, what a great idea!( no... its not). If a pregnant lady dies of covid, they still technically kill their unborn baby. Thats my interpretation of this poem at least. I loved the irony of it

Mixing religion and Senryu? How could you!
Politics and syllables? Seventeen lashes for you!
Japanese form and western social storm.
It's all too much to chew!
