Feel free to publish, post, or pass on Your Weekly Politickle by F.R. Duplantier:
Never mind what you do or you say,
You’re the source of all evil today.
If you don’t fit this dictum,
Then you must be a victim:
If you’re white, you’re a racist, okay?

RIOT ON CUE
“Don’t blame us if your city’s destroyed:
We just happen to have been employed
To spark riots and looting
(With no fear of cops shooting)
As a tribute to the life of George Floyd.”
POLICE, COME BACK!
“When the ‘protesting’ finally stops
And the fires have died down in the shops,
We’ll be too scared to roam
In what’s left of our home
And we’ll wish we could bring back the cops.”
FATHERS & FERGUSONS
Yes, the killing of blacks has to stop,
But the person to blame’s not a cop:
No, the one to put down
For the death of Mike Brown
Is his absent and disengaged pop.
“When the cop got to the scene,
He started acting mean.
Sure, I’m eight-foot-one
And a quarter ton,
But I’m just an unarmed teen!”
What they show on our media screens
Is distorted and not what it seems,
And despite their insistence
We all know from existence
There is reason to fear “unarmed teens.”
“May his memory not be defiled,
This young angel who never was wild.
Pay no heed to the lies
That suggest otherwise:
Lil Trayvon was an innocent child!”
THE PRICE IS RIOT
A new cell phone or VCR?
CD player to put in your car?
Don’t bother to buy it,
Just set off a riot,
Get it free at the bandits’ bazaar.
POLICE, THANK YOU!
Promise next time you see one you’ll stop,
When out for a stroll or to shop,
And give him a hand
For taking a stand:
It’s the least you can do for a cop.
Who has kept black Americans down
And spread hatred from town to town?
No, it’s no Anglo-Saxon
But the Reverend Jackson
Who’s the rabidest racist around!
Last week’s limerick
We’re connecting and soon we’ll all see
That it’s time for a new world to be:
We outnumber our “masters”
And can depose the bastards
If only we dare to live free.
