Upon Discovering a Tyrant (in revision)

atop wooden consoles
we pulled in whatever
was out there

footage of tanks
in hopeless mud
cannons flashing
through the night

our rugged life,
at the television
we would stare

zeros twisting
down in flames
der fuhrer pounding
with indignant might

in truculent german
to adoring masses
who would cheer

as he screamed
we versus them
follow the dream
the deutsches reich

I would wonder
what is he saying?
why is he so angry?

why are people
cheering
goose stepping
haling heiling

singing crying
like fools
smiling?

(just as a non
anglophone might think
when first hearing Limbaugh)

    Yeah, we all know that Rush has a secret army just waiting to annihilate a complete race of people. Your comparison is from an evil mind.

    I often listen to talk radio and sometimes listen to Rush for several minutes. When I listen to his presentation rather than his words, I am reminded of Hitler’s nonsensical rants. Of course Rush is much different than Adolf. Adolf was a drug user, lived in luxury, believed he was on loan from god, and was in favor of invasions and torture.
