The Rabid Radio Talk Show Crowd


I listen to rabid radio

where hosts hoist someone from hell

and throws them back after hours

of ridicule


anyone who wears the funny coat of headlines

is eligible             listeners throw water on them

hoping they’ll turn to dust like the witch

in a well known movie


some call up for target practice

shooting AK47 insults at them and

slinging hatred like shovels of shit

to make the stink stronger


living in the last century

they’re riding white stallions and slaughtering

Indians for a gory national glory

believing that someone named God applauds

they await awards     granted wishes of damnation
