Vitriolic's Synonymous

Vitriolic's Synonymous
(this poem was actually written last August, but I decided to bring it up again for the recent and outrageous remarks by Ann Coulter against John Edwards at the CPAC [Conservative Political Action Convention] in Washington, D.C. How the Hell does this woman get a forum for hate speech? Then again, how do many of the Right-wing lunatics get their forums?)
By Mark Lysgaard

There's a group that meets everyday
Across the publics airwaves.
They beat the drum of hate so loud
Driving listeners into their caves.

"Be afraid, be very afraid," they exclaim
"There are enemies at our back door.
They seek to take away our freedom
From wicked closets or foreign shores!"

It's Coulter, Limbaugh, Gibson, O'Reilly
Savage, Glenn Beck, and Sean Hannity.
They're vitriolics drunk on vitriolism
Hatred for our common humanity.

There should be a 12 step program
That should try to keep them inspired.
A psychological test for telling the truth;
Sodium pentothal should be required.

First they must recognize they are powerless
From lying and spewing insanity,
That the laws built in the Constitution
Be obeyed to protect humanity.

Decide to turn their life over to God
But not the Right-wing Christian version,
And take moral inventory of all their lies
And to cast out xenophobic aspersions.

Admit to those on the public airwaves
The exact nature of their wrongs,
And ask for humble forgiveness by us
So we can all just try to get along.

To ask that God who is all knowing
And is Liberal with his grace to forgive,
Grant that their defect in character disorders
May allow them to repent and live.

They should make a list of all they have harmed
And willing to make all amends,
Even if the ones who have been harmed
Don't want them as cocktail friends.

They continue to make personal inventory
And when wrong promptly admit;
No passive aggressive or sarcastic remarks
No more deceptions or throwing fits.

And through prayer and honest meditation
To improve their relationship with God,
As long as money is not their religion
For the ultimate of Republo-facades.

And after their spiritual awakenings
That they evangelize for the facts,
And criticize cable and broadcast liars
No more Vitriolics or Right-wing hacks!
