Hope You Like It, Not

To Those Who Need
Their Lives
Pollyanna Pure
Wonder-White Wise
Red Orange and Yellow Alerted
so sorry your not pleased to be not pleased
you're on notice/ be advised:

the news is
its in the wash
sweetly neatened
cleaned and sanitized
the meaning quashed
the language is now nicely squashed
saccharinely serene
information that's not
for the faint hearted
nor the knife-edge sharpers so keen
on dulling us down

so here you've got it
the nine and four one-one
bleached lilliest of white
delivered at the butt of a gun
for you to glean
the truth from the subterfuge
will hopefully be unseen

its all
guaranteed to make a proper scene
for your indelicate sensoria


oh how  
I wouldn't want to offend
but rather be the fair-weatherest
fraudish-friend
isn't this what you want?

so
hope you enjoy
misinformation
spread on thick
and obfuscation
is your first pick

I offer up this chilling mess as
evidence of
an obvious lack of sincere remorse
and lamentation

yeah,
I hope you like it-
not

(Please sir, can we have some more?)
