Poetry Corner: “Evangelical Television Special”

Evangelical Television Special

Four hundred dollar shoes from Milan
adorn the religious spreader
brains thick as peanut butter
sticky
impossible to digest
bringing God to the Brazilians aboriginals displaced by hydroelectric development
under a big white tent
the American sponsored God supposed to bring joy for a workplace employees of RCA
the hot breathed babbler graced with the spirit and hefty pay
the godly empires bloat
with the corporate accountants beginning to gloat
after all Satan is smote
Yankee bosses and government bureaucrats knows God encourages a docile worker
peacefully kept in line by a born again tear jerker
making the CIA obsolete
Reds will be in retreat
a veritable Billy Grahamcracker feat
