First line has to be ripped from from the news.

-----------------------------------------------------

Oath gives Justice Roberts and Obama some pauses
as the dapper high courtesan learned all his becauses
will soon overturn the decrees of his bosses
and tweak all their upward turned noses.
And the thinking on brinks and the precipice dwelling
led our good Chieftain to stutters quite telling
in light of the story he should have been selling
the suckers out there on the dais;
the moment's historic
but, alas, my poor Yorick,
I fear the fine man will betray us.

dung beetle devours millipedes
after years taking a bum rap
d. valgum eschews chewing crap
a nasty decapitation precedes
what afterwards requires a snooze
the meal iself no one sees

the reason is surely evolutionary
among all the beasts of the dung
only one has climbed this rung
in the scarabaeoidea family
now d. valgum wears the pants
instead of the traditional dungaree

and what does the sorry millipede
make of being made into soup
by those known for eating poop
every diplopoda must concede
their singular and united purpose
is to defend against this indignity

a call for change,
like a penny in a cup, tries to sound
as we cry in relief and grief and gibbering sighs.
thin music in the crowd.
like a tack from your heel
like a foot off your throat
like a board from your eye
who can help but gloat.
the terrific chaos freedom brings,
the teenage, stupid, naked, daring
dreams of peaceful, perfect things
brought about by others' caring,
floods our veins and ears and eyes,
makes us dumb and deaf and blind
and drowns us in the roaring cloud
and threatens one good chance to find
thin music in the crowd.

young women best at spotting cute babies
not to mention the many faults of men
an unwashed smudge on a glass rim
where you hide your ex's number
and her panties in your under
wear drawer
oh hell
young women best at being scorned

so, I was watching adult swim last night and they do these things they call bumps which are basically a way for AS to promote itself between commercials and shows and sometimes they use odd tidbits of news or current events to that end and so the second family guy was over and they put up this bump about young women spotting cute babies, taken from the exact source I based my poem on. then there's some commercials and AS comes back and before robot chicken they air another bump and this one is about the dung beetle who stopped eating shit and began eating millipedes, same story I based my other poem in this thread on. I would now like to take this opportunity to ask whoever it is within the adult swim organization that has been spying on me in this forum to stop it. or put me on the payroll. thank you.

US lifts ban on photos of war casualties.
It's not the bodies that bother us
but the flags that tag the dogs of war
and make the prayer group ask "what for?"
and make the patriots
cast their gaze in national bronze,
staring beyond their shining city
toward some now unseemly gleam
in the eyes
of a tired man
in Texas.
