Association of the Living Dead India

John (“Jake”) Cosmos Aller

In India, several years ago
A man falsely claimed his brother
Was dead so he could inherit the family assets,

The dead brother had to fight
To be declared legally not dead
And contest the will.

“The Association of the Living Dead”
Became a movement
Of thousands of people.
For in India apparently,
It was a thing to declare
Your relative is dead.

I never thought
That the US would have
To form their own
“The Association of the Living Dead”
Until this week.

The cyber ninjas
In their infamous non-forensic audit
In the 2016 Arizona election
Claimed that hundreds of dead people
Had voted.

They gave their list of the alleged dead voters
To the attorney general
Who contact all 300 dead people

Found that 299 of the 300 were in fact
Not dead and none of them knew
That unnamed political operatives
Were claiming that they were dead.

The one dead voter was alive
when he voted early.
But died before election day
Thus making his vote not valid
But there was no fraud involved
As he was alive when he voted.

Perhaps they need to form
The “association of the living dead”
To fight for the right of the non-dead people
To continue to vote and receive other government benefits?

What a sad commentary
On the farcical nature
Of contemporary life
In these disunited States of America.

The Secret Fly Drone

John (“Jake”) Cosmos Aller

The fly on the wallpaper
In the CIA director’s office
Was not a real fly
He was an enemy spy drone
Secretly controlled remotely
Listening to all the secret conversations

Until the director smashed him
With a flyswatter
Then realized that it was a spy fly
He had dispatched to bug hell.

Madmen with Guns Madness

John (“Jake”) Cosmos Aller

After every incident
Of mass gun violence
In the U.S.

Pictures emerge
Of the killers
Almost always white men.

Who stares out at you
With soulless dead eyes
Filled with hate, fear
And shear madness.

With the thousand-year stare
Of the madman
Who only hears

The voices in his head
Screaming kill them all
Kill them all.

And as always
They usually legally bought
The guns.

This case was a bit different
The gunman briefly had his guns
Taken away from him

And his 60 knives as well
Judged temporarily too crazy
To have a gun.

But the red flag law
Is not a permanent ban
As it should be.

And so he was able
To re-arm himself
With the best weapons

In the world
At a very affordable price.
Thanks to the NRA.

And so he was soon lost
Down the rabbit hole
Of insanity and probably drugs,

The lone sniper
A disgruntled young white man
In his 20’s
Sets up shop on top of a building.

He has a high-powered weapon
No doubt bought legally
An AR-15 is the choice
Of the serious gun men everywhere.

And begins shooting
Into the July 4th parade
Killing six people
Injuring 30.

Before putting the gun down
And fleeing
Before the cops can find him.

The right-wing media
Goes to works
The pundits pontificate

It is not about the gun
It is about everything else
That is wrong with our society.

Guns don’t kill people
They proclaim
Guns are the price we pay
For our freedom.

Their demented answer
is more guns
More guns for everyone.

And sadly, nothing will be done
As the politicians offer
Useless thoughts and prayers

The gun ghosts don’t care
They are dead after all.

The madness will not stop
Until we figure out
How to stop
The killers in our midst.

There will be another shooting
No doubt before the day is done
Over 300 so far this year.

And that is just the way
It is in this day and age
Of America.

The land of the free
Home of the brave
And 400 million guns.
