Chrome Covered Rosebuds

Chrome covered rosebuds and dyslexic daisies
Dirt-devil divas and wombats with rabies

Blue bloodless fem-bots that drop from the sky
misogyny dies in the blink of an eye

Dipshits in red hats with white MAGA letters
Grunge bands with new tats of Cobains and Vedders

Palm trees and face plants a rip in the sky
Ginger loves Mary Ann’s Coconut pie

Deep-seated distrust and misinformation
Biscuits with deadbolts and sex doll inflation

Mad rants and just cants, a flask full of lies
The truth falls asleep to our sad lullabies

Sinatra and Martin, Carson and Rickles
Bone chips on blood-stained pennies and nickels

Douchebags and despots about to ally
To map out our lives on the wings of a fly
