Micro-targeting

 

(sung to the tune from an old dog food TV ad)

 

My God’s better than your God.

My God’s better than yours.

My God’s better ‘cause he

creates confrontation.

My God’s better than yours.

Madison Avenue taught us that.

Leni Riefenstahl taught us that

with Triumph of the Will.

Who’s will?

Frank Capra taught us that

with Why We Fight?

What’s this we stuff?

Trust no one.

Did the Church of England

make Henry a saint?

Nope.

Did Augustus become a god

because they sculpted a statue?

Or did it take a Senate resolution?

 

Beware the Emperor of Ice Cream,

because something wicked this way comes.

About johnsmithiiimxiii

John Smith, IIMXIII is the avatar of an award winning poet, artist, etc. who still lives in the Palouse country of the Pacific NW. He has not received much notice with his prose . . . but as his avatar, I hope that he keeps plugging along.
