Two SVP Poems

2016 by Hello World

(Genre: Specialized Vocabulary Poems)


The Election (beat form)

I miss those carpetbagging, kleptocratic, double-speaking, pork belling,
block-voting, dystopian, filibustering, boondoggling, coat tailing, oligarchical
days of gerrymandering, logrolling, isolationist, glad-handling hacks who groupthink
their hegemonic and jingoistic disregard for the plebeian hoi polloi on the hustings.


The Candidate

Pray thee well.

For upon the altar of thine life,
rests no sacrifice,
save humility.

And righteousness.

Judgment Day cometh.
