The Complete “Growl” [Because Now More Than Ever]

For Karl Rove Solomon

I SAW the second-best minds of my not-so-Great Generation destroyed by Bush Trump Derangement Syndrome, pasty, paunchy, tenured, and not looking too sharp naked,

bullshitting themselves through the African-American streets at cocktail hour lusting for a Cialis refill and one black friend on the down-low,

aging hair-plugged hipsters burning for their ancient political connection to the White House through the machinations of monied moonbats,

who warred on poverty and Blackwater’s Wal-Mart and bulbous-eyed and still high from some bad acid in 1968 set up no-smoking zones on tobacco farms in the unnatural darkness of Darwinistic delusions floating a few more half-baked secular notions like “Let’s all worship Zero!”,

who on the Burly Bears float of gay pride bared their man-breasts and, she/it/he, bleated their vaginas’ mawkish monologues to John Kennedy’s ghost under the Capitol Dome and french-kissed Mohammedan agents in the gore-drenched redrum rooms of Guantanamo,

who passed gas in grad school and on into universities with radiant meth eyes hallucinating President Barry O’Bama and Vice-President Joe Who?, envisioning world peace among the masters of war and stayed on and stayed on and stayed on sucking off the great teat of academe in unpaid student loans and over-paid professorial positions the better to molest the minds and bodies of children for decades with every third year off in Provance for bad behavior,

who were embraced by the academies and hired by the New York Times for crazy & publishing obscene odes or anything else that trashed Republicans or non-Unitarian Christians without regard for truth since there were no consequences for these posturing poseurs of puke,

who cowered in their marble-countered plasma-screened media rooms in smegmaed underwear which was no longer Victoria’s Secret, burning their money by donating it in carloads to every half-assed Democratic POL that promised re-erections in Two-Ten without the losing proposition of actually holding an election, and listening to Rush Limbaugh through the wall,

who got bombed at public wine-tastings by chugging the slops bin and referencing Sideways, returning to their summer house in the Hamptons where they ate smoked salmon and each other, smoked $400-a-bud marijuana, wore $250 denims, paid the maid $200 a week before taxes, and bitched about how the economy was a mess but did not really, as they claimed, send their $36,000 tax cut back to the government, and continued to suffer the secret shame of Affluenza,

who breathed fire and bile about ungrateful “Democrat plantation negroes” among their cooler college comrades, and shut up around the one black friend they all shared, and drank turpentine to get through “A Night with Gloria Steinem”, claimed bogus ego-death, blended health shakes from Cherry Garcia, seaweed, and the dried dung of Deepak Chopra, and Ab-Busted their torsos night after night that their butts might spread on the Le Corbusier sofa eternally after,

with dreams of Two-Ten re-erection victory without elections, with seven different mood-soothing drugs in the Ikea medicine cabinet, with waking Birkenstock nightmares of Bush, Bush, still of Bush, alcohol Jello shots and the soon to be sanctified Holy Matrimony of gay cock and deballings by their now not-so-significant others,

who blathered continuously about the Florida “theft” for decades after the two Bush terms while the One put one, two, maybe three or even four justices on the Supreme Court, but still not nine!, causing a million fatal air-embolisms during consenting acts of mutual Manhattan humm-jobs,

a lost battalion of a multi-million man and mom marching platonic conversationalists jumping to conclusions about WMD off fire escapes off windowsills off World Trade Center out of the moon, yacketayakking screaming vomiting whispering “BUSH LIEEEEEEEEED!” forever after into deepest eternity, and moonbat memories and false anecdotes and eyeball kicks and yearning for the electro-shocks of hospitals and the briefness of jails and bring back the endless Bush wars that we may hate into our drool-cups again …. oh my sorry little schmos…. ,

who wandered around and around at midnight at the White House wondering where O smoked and Michelle hid her dildos, got the address of Obama’s birthplace in Hawaii at 1776 Kenya Street and went there with fresh batteries, and found Barbra Striesand lurking in the lanai with Whoopi Goldberg and Goldie Hawn, all set on leaving no child’s behind,

who had double-standard visions of fashionable footwear while their baby seals died, turned inside-out into a pair of fur-lined muck-lucks by Halliburton, Halliburton, Halliburton, Halliburton

who thought they were only mad when the second coming of BushHitler appeared in the clouds above their White House like the mother ship in Independence day proclaiming “Neener, neener, neener,”

who in humorless protest turned Hillary Clinton into their personal hand-puppet, which she enjoyed, and then complained that she looked far too much like the devil spawn of Howdy Doody and Alfred E. Newman, and that the fit was too loose,

who scribbled celebrity porn from scuffed kneepads in the offices of Vanity Fair and collected and shaved stray cats far into their barren Pecksniffian nights until that bleak Upper West Side dawn when, waking from their stupor, rolled over in bed and discovered they had slept, not with their sixth spouse, but with Barney Frank, and thought, “Well, that’s an upgrade,”

who dreamt O-Ba-Ma! O-Ba-Ma! hectoring and bloviating in the White House until in galactic luminosity Nancy Pelosi stood knock-kneed and naked on “Fleece the Nation” clad only in her San Francisco penis-gourd of flaccid played-out policies, while being frisked by a thousand agents of I-Am-the-President Obama, super avenging angel of the SortaSocialist Party, now and forever recreating the syntax and measure of polluted human prose, “Oh Hope!, Oh Change!, O Timor!, O Mortis!, Oh Yes We Can’t!,” and then all of them in their faded glory standing before America past, present, and to come, speechless and pseudo-intelligent and shaking with unshamed shame, a whole once proud party now doomed to decorate pikes and lamp-posts,

who were reduced in desperation after aborting their next generation to bribing the fervently fertile illegal constituents of wise Latina judges with appointments, with dinner parties, with caviar burritos, with $50 a shot artisan tequila, with cash for Cuernavaca clunkers, and invitations to bi-lingual and tri-sexual Hollywood “events,” rejected yet confessing to the guttering sparks of thought in its treppaned Democrat skull as it proclaimed its new positive program for “Mourning in America,” “Yes, yes, yes, like our patron saint Michelle-O-LaBelle that deep driving dominatrix of The Won, we too have a two-inch political penis, give us alllll your money, give us alllll your votes, give us ALLLLL THE POWER!, we and we alone can give you the golden gifts of our youth — appeasement, defeatism, pacifism, penury, poverty and death!”,

and rose reincarnate in the tattered rags of bluster and blabber in the tinhorn shadow of the ballot box and blew the the suffering of America’s lumbering liberals’ lust for unearned power into an eli eli lamma lamma sabacthani saxophone bleat still pandering for the Jewish vote after erasing Israel, as the American people, at long last no fools they, shived the elite in their entrails and blew them off again and again right past the last bus stop of democracy

with the absolute loss of political significance butchered out of their own body politic good to lose a thousand years.

Donald Trump! I’m with you in America
where you’re draining the swamp more than I am

Donald Trump, I’m with you in America
where you must feel MAGAfied

Donald Trump, I’m with you in America
where you announce another a newer and more bigly morning

Donald Trump, I’m with you in America
where you’ve strangled the last progressive
with the entrails of the last liberal

Donald Trump, I’m with you in America
where you laugh at Democrats’ Trump Dementia

Donald Trump, I’m with you in America
where we are great citizens of the same Resurrected Republic

Donald Trump, I’m with you in America
where your sudden appearance on the Interstate
is reported with fear or joy on every web site of the Internet

Donald Trump, I’m with you in America
where the Constitution is read aloud and squashes
the worms of the regressive oppressive progressives

Donald Trump, I’m with you in America
where we drink the fine summer Diet Cokes of Liberty

Donald Trump, I’m with you in America
where you midwife a new birth of freedom

Donald Trump, I’m with you in America
where your mere name makes progressives scream
in their straightjackets and fill up their drool cups to the slosh line

Donald Trump, I’m with you in America
where you announce the American soul is immortal
and has never yet melted

Donald Trump, I’m with you in America
where the traitors in the Congress are consumed
in a refining fire

Donald Trump, I’m with you in America
where the LORD will not suffer
the souls of the righteous to famish

Donald Trump, I’m with you in America
where you will split the heavens above Washington
and resurrect the living human Jesus from the
secular tomb

Donald Trump, I’m with you in America
where there are three hundred million sane citizens
all together singing the final stanza
of The Battle Hymn of the Republic

Donald Trump, I’m with you in America
where we embrace the United States under
our flag, the stars of the United States that shine all
night and won’t let us sleep in our dream

Donald Trump, I’m with you in America
where we wake up luminous and transformed from the coma
of socialism, our states’ stars beautiful
in spacious skies above our fruited plains,
as diamond-armored angelic guardians of the last best hope of Earth
O liberated legions run outside O starry
spangled shock of freedom the eternal war is
won O victory where the memory of the just is blessed:
but the name of the wicked shall rot

Donald Trump, I’m with you in America
in my visions you stride back from a seachange
on the highway across America glowing luminous
our founders’ vision confirmed by God’s holy angels
to the door of my bungalow in the Northwestern night

Composed March 2006- September 2018

This concludes the epic poem of GROWL!

    From your pen…to God’s ear…let it be so!

  • Howard Nelson September 19, 2018, 12:19 PM

    For Growl and its Growler, all superlatives are inadequate.

  • Rev.Hoagie September 19, 2018, 3:13 PM

    F’n fantastic!

  • JoeDaddy September 19, 2018, 5:43 PM

    Yes. YEs. and YES!!

  • Vanderleun September 20, 2018, 10:36 AM

    Good on yer, Jim. I made that improving replacement.

  • Mike-SMO June 19, 2021, 11:09 AM

    Where is the part about the GOPe (business section) that made a deal and sold out their country for 30 pieces of silver or due to a quake of cowardice?

    The ones whoi preferred profit and fat wallets with Joe (Stalin) instead of honorable success (or failure) with Trump.

    It’s jes “Business”.

  • Kevin in PA June 19, 2021, 11:16 AM

    Bravo, G.

    “…where you’ve strangled the last progressive
    with the entrails of the last liberal.”

    They may call themselves “liberal” and “progressive” but they are fascist and regressive.


  • ghostsniper June 19, 2021, 2:14 PM

    They are homicidal children and must be treated as such.
    Off with their nutz, ‘specially the females.

  • Dan Patterson June 19, 2021, 4:26 PM

    We’ve seen this play before, those of us paying attention. Some of you will be in the lobby at intermission with a plastic glass of wine listening politely to the babbling fools pretending to be enlightened, or like me with in the parking lot taking a pull off a bottle from under the front seat.
    The rebellious redneck gene waiting in many American males is a damned nasty thing when put to the test, ask me how I know if you have the stomach for it.
    The current trajectory is one of certain destruction and the proof is contained in the unread pages of history. But I am not to be counted among the platoons of cuck appeasement assholes hoping to be eaten last. I am directly connected to the order “You may fire when you are ready, Gridely” and other often tragic thrusts at the powerful forces seeking liberty’s destruction; most of those ghostly voices are unheard.
    We are in a terrifying time, like it or not and it is to be countered by mean assholes with no regard for manners, not by elitists seeking compromise and agreement. The correction for our pathetic excuse for a society has yet to be openly discussed but it is well known by many,.

    I don’t think Alan would approve, I do.

  • Lady Cutekitten of Lolcat June 19, 2021, 5:30 PM

    Now, that is one magnificent rant.

    I need a cigarette. And I don’t even smoke.

  • Callmelennie June 19, 2021, 5:33 PM

    You are a child of the right blog sphere
    No less than Rush or Tuca
    You have no right to be heard
    And whether you believe it or not
    No doubt the DOJ is noting just what you’ve said

  • Vanderleun June 19, 2021, 7:16 PM

    Hey, I actually knew Allen and even interviewed him a couple of times. Once when he was just getting up from a tryst with Dan Welch at the City Lights business office on Upper Grant. He would have dug it baby.

  • Randall R Bridges June 19, 2021, 9:40 PM

    The most deliciously slapdash elocutionary rutting long read ever! Great Balls of Fire!

  • Aggie June 20, 2021, 6:18 AM

    Make America Growl! Again.

  • Andrew R June 20, 2021, 8:34 AM

    Magnificent! I’d love to see the nuclear powered Ouija board you used to channel Ginsberg like that.
    My favorite line “Democrat of the dried dugs of Ariana Huffington’s Code Pink Synchronized Menopause Flasher Brigade known as “The View”!”. I genuinely laughed out load (very loud!) at that.
    Made my day and it’s only 10:30 a.m.

  • James ONeil June 20, 2021, 9:38 AM

    We’re with you Gerald,
    Growling at the ….

  • RC June 20, 2021, 3:09 PM

    I’ve been waiting for this!
    It’s Father’s Day, and I was just reminiscing over my CMSAF dad in heaven, and
    this was like the whistling bugle call he made to wake me each morning for school.
    Thank you for changing the conversation, Gerald, and I hope you begin many more like this.

  • Steven J Schellenberg June 21, 2021, 8:40 AM

    Reading that made me want to take a long shower. Glad you could get it out.

  • Missy June 21, 2021, 3:42 PM

    OMG…Ginsburg and his “wife,” Peter, came to Tucson when I was there in the late ’60s, and I went to his reading and after party. He reminded me, and I stole this from Woody Allen, a sensible woman shopper.
