Your Weekly Politickle: UNDER GOD

Feel free to publish, post, or pass on Your Weekly Politickle by F.R. Duplantier:

UNDER GOD
Though our enemies cannot abide us
And forever will try to divide us
With distinctions that vex
Such as class, race, and sex,
Our invincible lord’s here to guide us.

From the archive

DEPLORABUS UNUM
You may think that we’re deplorable,
But the fact is we’re adorable:
We are tried, we are true,
We outnumber you,
And that means we’re unignorable.
(2021)

UNUM
We must do what our duties demand
To preserve this exceptional land,
To make sure we’re united
And never divided,
’Cause a house that’s divided can’t stand.
(2019)

E PLURIBUS
Our last names may be Hess, Hock, or Harrigan,
Federov, Feldstein, or Farrakhan,
MacDonald, Mandina,
Nguyen, Wong, Kim, or Pena,
But we’re one and we’re all all-American.
(2016)

BLANK LIKE ME
Census takers who tally my head
Will not know if I’m black, white, or red:
Because, in the space
To designate race,
I’ll inscribe the word “human” instead.
(2000)

PREFIXATION
Adding Euro- and Afro- won’t do:
Ethnic conflict will only ensue.
No hyphen for me:
I’m happy to be
An American through and through.
(1998)

Last week’s limerick

FUROR
Has your patience worn thin, Comrade Joe?
Well, that’s funny! In case you don’t know,
You serve us, you big clown,
Not the other way round,
And it’s time for your dumb ass to go.
