Vegetable Nation

Republicans love Americans
turned to vegetables,
on their lies and fake news.
fighting vigorously,
human lettuce must live,

Bush rushing to the White House,
he even concluded a vacation
for signing on
to Terri’s right to stare blankly forever,

getting away from the stink
of executed corpses
of thinking humans
he left rotting in Texas graveyards,

pushing vegetative rights,
Republican should take Terri to lunch
invite her to birthday parties
remarry her and give her children,

Vegetable Nation growing up
in the White House’s secret garden,
Farmer Dubya
bringing in the sheaves.
