caviar with perry

John Jessup Kennan 1953 (Pomona)

the lunatic from
krypton forgot his vax
passport card set it on
the dresser in his
bedroom at his mom's
house on their home
planet as he was waitin
for his cape to finish its
dry cycle truth justice & the
american way will just hafta
wait clark kent is just another
muttering buffoon drooling on
himself nutha victim uh the
kryptonite cootie in restraints
with his news dispatches pimpin
his own anonymous self-heroism
nobody suspects a thing he
thinks at he winks at the cute
mask on the genetically
modified lois lane from his

metropolis pd raygunned a
purple cat last week & now
all the purple lives matter
protesters are burning down
houses of handkerchieves &
tweezer factories
lex luthor raised taxes on us
again but it's ok there's nowhere
to spend it anyway the nut
hut accounts have all been

jimmy olsen in rags at tent
city sells bonfires three for a
dime gee willikers batgirl you
really need a shower wouldja
like a derweenyschnitz coupon
the church is givin em away but ya
gotta sit thru a sermon worth it
fer a chili cheese dawg though
beats the slop at the mission yo
bobby wussup bobby the phalange
sez didja hear the news clark kent hanged himself with his tie

lois lane declares martial law from
her desk at media central citizens
comply transfixed by her fortysix
doubledees marvels of modern
medicine lois relaxes in the hot tub with her pet ocelot at the penthouse
apartment of perry white
media mogul magnate
lois reports that the savior from
krypton ate his gun gone mad
a symptom of the kryptonite cootie
eatin the superwiring in his
superbrain and all rights have been

tonight at eleven:
experts debate the dangers of critical
thinking we'll have it for ya right
here stay tuned
