Winedrunk Sidewalk features “Would You Come Into My Parler?”

Winedrunk Sidewalk: Shipwrecked in Trumpland published another short poem of mine today. This time out, it’s my jab at the Parler social media platform — while riffing on Mary Howitt’s classic “The Spider and the Fly.”

You can find it right here.

Thanks, as always, the Editor John Grochalski for allowing me to join the fun at Winedrunk Sidewalk!

 

 

 

“Would you come into my Parler?” said The Spider to The Fly.

“Would you come into my Parler?” said The Spider to The Fly.


“There’s news for real Americans — the MAGA girls and guys!


The way into my Parler is up a winding stair.


If you have a brain or conscience, just leave them out there.”


“Oh yes, yes,” said the little Fly, “a place to bash and blame


those party-pooping liberals who fact-check all my claims!”
