    THE REVULSION...IS BEING TELEVISED

    The revulsion...IS being televised

    We interrupt this telecast to bring you
    The latest update on the war
    In favor of oil based colonialism....
    Our troops..operating under the explicit instructions
    Of the cross-eyed meglomaniac seeking
    A positive mention in hisSTORY books....
    Something which escaped his thieving father
    And his band of merry crooks!....yet

    The revulsion...IS being televised

    And it's being brought to you in conjunction with
    (NCAA'S) MARCH MADNESS..men's division only
    Because TITLE IX remains mired in cable access sadness....
    Mainly due to the reverse...about/two-faced positions
    Of the current administration and it's learless needer..the
    Self-appointed..through nepotism supported....
    FRAUDULENT of the united? states!!...whereas

    The revulsion...IS being televised

    And as your children march of into hell's own mouth
    Under the guise of placebo patriotism..fueled by
    Inflammatory rhetoric and...for media contrived catch phrases....
    To "protect" an/our unthreatened freedom (from who?)
    Because of a "job" they undertook
    His children..get to get it twisted....
    By breaking and usurping laws governing alcohol consumption
    And dealing crack within the "secret service secured"
    Confines of "rehab"...I'm reminded of capt. ahab....
    Seeking to attain his "trophy" at any and all costs
    And in the end...when the talley is taken
    It will be those of whom at ****tail parties....
    Are condsidered/referred to as plebeian
    Who'll suffer the greatest loss!!!...whereas

    The revulsion...IS being televised

    It's being brought to you by colgate and
    The surrepititious smiles of beasts
    With blood stained teeth..the likes of which....
    No amount of clorox..nor scrubbing bubbles
    Can remove the "fowl" breath of aggression
    To whit..the attempt has therefore been to mask the odor....
    With "plug-ins" that smell oh..so.."sweet"!!!!...meanwhile

    The revulsion..IS being televised

    And it's being sponsored by (exxon and) big k-mart
    Which is ironic since killing innocents
    In the market place...their version of a mall....
    Oops..did little or nothing to assuage anyone at all
    Whom had nary a thing to do with their governments
    Duplicitious policies...even though they pay....
    With their lives...for it's so-called "atrocities"!!!!!..and

    The revulsion IS being televised

    And..when the smoke clears...as the sun also rises
    Retribution..like revenge..is a dish best served cold...so
    Do NOT be surprised when/if human bombs....
    Begin to explode...in and around your
    Duct tape and plastic protected neighborhoods..therefore
    We now return you to OUR PROGRAM...already in PROGRESS!!!!!!....
    Because..unfortunately for us all
    The REVULSION IS being TELEVISED!!!!!!!

    ***Legacy Bows Down*** Damnit we ain't worthy of this righteously blazing joint. You took the torch of truth and lit a flame to all misconceptions in the media. This was so hard it rocked my brain! **** tight piece!
