Serious looks around the circle Stern countenances Zoom in on one particularly humorless brow No alternative- No alternative to victory! Victory! They repeat They repeat Themselves a lot These days are almost flying by With victory after victory after victory But not their victory! They were promised victory! No alternative to victory! The gay Nazis have organized themselves To steal... Wait, you don't know About the gay Nazis? The collective West, particularly the USA No longer accepts heterosexuality In fact Breastfeeding Babies is illegal -haha- Children are taken away For calling their mothers 'Mommy' Citizens are forced -haha- to march in Pride Parades; encouraged to undergo sex Change operations This -haha- is what transpires In Georgia -haha- these days It's become another satellite of the West A colony They're trying to colonize us! To enslave us! Some things are worse than death, Comrades! Why do you think prison Inmates commit suicide? Eighty years ago, the Germans Were the Nazis Today, it's the West, and we The Russian people are the new Jews Sure The Nazis hated and murdered gays But this is 2022; everything natural Has turned on its head And our forces are now facing Armies; Legions of gay Nazis Who want to colonize us; kill us Until we turn gay.
d’Verse poetics: Allen Ginsberg and the Beat Generation
This poem was written for the recent d’Verse prompt to write in the style of the Beat Generation. Pour out the first thought, the first thing that comes to mind and let the words take you forward.
Let’s write poetry together!
When it comes to partnership, some humans can make their lives alone – it’s possible. But creatively, it’s more like painting: you can’t just use the same colours in every painting. It’s just not an option. You can’t take the same photograph every time and live with art forms with no differences.–Ben Harper (b. 1969)
