they will also publish Cancel Culture in December.

Cancel Culture Run Amuck

I am so sick

And tired

Of the so-called “Cancel culture”
Nonsense
That has spread out

Along with the rightwing media verse
Infecting the public
With their hatred and disdain

I don’t know what it all means
Something about political speech
social conservatives

Being canceled
By left-wing woke mobs
In the mainstream media

“Libtard “Coastal elites
And tech giants

Seems that they don’t like
Being held to account
For minimal standards
Of decent behavior

For example, not spreading lies
About COVID vaccinations
I mean you Senator Johnson
Banned by YouTube for a week

Or inciting a riot
I mean you
Former guy
And his minions

Used to be
That we were all
Held to account

For decent behavior
By a sense of public shame

So, we did no go there
We knew where the lines were
And respected them

But in the era
Of the former guy
All civilized restrains
Have gone out the window

I say to my republican friends
If you don’t want to be canceled
Don’t say or do disgusting things
Don’t spread hate and misinformation

Then we would not have to
Cancel your nonsense

Until then I need to shut
Off the damn media noise box

They previously published a number of my pieces, and I participated in their first open mike reading “ Just Enough for Coffee”.
