“On Condition of Anonymity”    by ClapSo

We live in a decaffeinated
Non-fat, soy based world
Forever correcting each others
Speech and actions


An endless quest for purity of thought, speech, and body
A low-cal, sugar free censored speech reality
The white cotton gloves of the mind
Are ready to sanitize our thoughts


Even when we attend a group meal there are demands
For a lesbian midget from Venus outreach
Lest dinner seem non-inclusive

Don’t step on no toes or spill your overpriced pure spring water
On that recycled, late 60’s coffee table
Hand me onea dem genetically engineered corn bumper stickers
Never mind that the farmers are starving

The sierra club is accepting your penance
Via check, money order, or credit card


For the sin of driving your
Urban assault vehicle S.U.V
To the health food store

Proper consumption will assure we regurgitate
The group neutral correct speak of the moment

Is there any way out of this maize
Of fashion based creative consumptive judgment?

I give you my benefit of the doubt
Unconditional love

On condition of anonymity…

“Attention: Subdivision Revolutionaries”    by ClapSo

The revolution will NOT happen at the mall
All your middle class whining will be for naught:

Because the “socialists” are the collegiate bourgeois
Arguing about which dead “revolutionary”
Has the most bitichin’ beard

In suburban coffee houses

While waiting for the Godot proletariat
To rise up
That’s what they consider some sort of plan?

Fuck you very much…

There is a stalinist expansion
Of the socialist book shelf
At your friendly strip mall alternative book store

You’ll find it in the back
Right next to the anarchist cook book collection

There will be a bounce house in the form
Of an exact replica of lenin’s tomb
At the next socialist party picnic!

Organic green smoothies will be served
To wash down your grass fed, free range burger

Please drive your daddy’s BMW safely
There is plenty of free parking
In the trotsky memorial parking lot

Coming soon!

Take two and you’ll think you’re a socialist…

“From Maple Syrup to Syrup of Ipecac”   By ClapSo

We tap trees here in upstate NY
The sugaring down doesn’t sweeten
The political and economic bitterness much

The only two things I have left
Are my sense of humor and my poetry
Having long since lost my mind

Considering that war criminals and corpoRATe thieves
Are now considered to be “sane”
Being crazy is no vice in the present world.

There are still some hopeful signs as these our mighty old friends
Withstanding so far the test of time
Have been feeding and warming us for Millennia

Yet they like us have become little more then commodities
To be viciously exploited for corpoRATe profit
If it moves, shoot it, if it doesn’t move, chop it down!

The former Audubon world
Now fully replaced
By high speed Autobahn freeways to nowhere

Having been born and raised in the zoo york metropolis
I can dance to the feverish pitch of citysong
Swimming in the midtown rivers of humanity

But too long in those frigid, murky waters
My lips turn blue with cityflu
I spasm, retch and spit out the soul toxins

Stumbling out of the industrial wasteland many of us call home
Tumbling and disoriented at the first
My head starts to clear as my escape is made good

Off to the once grand worldwide topiary megalopolis
Now pitifully reduced in scope
To a spartan set of dwindling scattered villages

But as yet what’s left is enough to heal my body and mind
Of the damage wrought by city planning commission trespass
The acceleration of such having long passed any reasonable speed limit

To slow down and relearn anew by flipping through
The historic pages of moss covered stones
Which point to from whence we came

Even as the cityspeed
Turns where we’re going
into a blurred rush to nowhere…

“Reflections on the new prez”    by ClapSo

Just Another Thursday in bernvictimville… #1

•December 8, 2016 • 2 Comments

It’s quite clear the dems intend to #trump_etDemFailures! Four more years of “the repubs won’t let us!” With da bern as dem front man…

DAGNABIT!

That crazy old coot continues to #trump-etDemFailures which are his fucking failures too! This soon after he admitted he wouldn’t submit his universal healthcare bill because dem “party unity is more important.” Fuck that guy and the bernvictims he rode in on!

I’d say: Alright! But trumpty dumpty hasn’t even been sworn in yet and the dems are already blaming him for dem failures? Click the following actual headline of the POS article in the hill to see what we’re in for:

Sanders: GOP blocked ‘Trump proposal’ to lower drug prices

Candidates For President Attend Iowa Democrat's Wing Ding Dinner

Da bern on der weinermister: “It was THIS big, I swear!”

SONOFABUSH!

Are they fucking kidding? The repubs intend to blame the poor. The dems intend to blame the repubs. They better come up with a better plan then that, or there will be a Molotov cocktail hour, with Robespierre ball to follow come spring. The dem and repub guests of dishonor can come clutching poor vintage bottles of deficit whine . . . then off with their fucking heads… 

FAGETABOWDIT!

In the mean time, somewhat lost in the speculation about which fetid pieces of shit trumpty dumpty will fish out of the trumpster personnel dumpster. The dems have named my other bad senator from the late state of zoo york, archschmuck schumer, their glorious leader in the senate!

Well I guess since he’s already on a first name basis with all the goldman sucks banksters trumpty dumpty is considering appointing, that keeps it all in the inbred, corrupt, corpoRATe family huh?

sen-chuck-schumer

Da archschmuck on der weinermister: “It was THIS big, I swear!”

BUDABING!

What in the name of buddy jeebus with a happy meal at space mountain will come next?

Let’s gaze into ClapSo’s Amazing Future Foretelling Cracked Crystal Cube™ to see what we got a comin’:

  • The dems, who have whined for years about the repubs blocking statusQUObama’s mediocre appointments, will allow trumpty dumpty to appoint a bevy of bankster and other corpoRATe shitheads, with little if any fight…
  • The dems who have whined for years that they couldn’t get anything done “because the repubs wouldn’t let em” will go along with any hair brained corpoRATe enrichment scheme trumpty dumpty and the repubs pull out of their fat asses…
  • We will be fucked, totally fucked, in the worst way, without lube or a good night kiss. And they won’t call the next day either…

Special ClapSorific™ BONUS QUIP: I would flee the country, but then I would run the risk of becoming a victim of US foreign policy…

In Defense of the much maligned Gluten… ClapSoCuisine™ #2

•December 7, 2016 • Leave a Comment

Of all the terrible fad diets that have come and gone, gluten-free is the worst!

Let’s start with a Haiku:

Triticale Spell Craft by ClapSo
Sage, is the gluten
It brandishes the magic
Staff of life, reborn…

All the following baked, photographed, and eaten by ClapSo . . . with the help of gluten…

This Canadian White pan loaf with Cinnamon and Raisins added during shaping is a staple around here. I usually make a couple of loaves a week, sometimes even more. I like it best with a “shmear” of Cream Cheese toasted or not…

Loaf Brioche are a fave of mine. Brioche à tête, little muffin size Brioche with a little head on top are a more common form. To call Brioche a bread is stretching the definition of the word bread. It’s more a pastry or a cake then bread. Since there’s almost a pound of butter baked in these two loaves, just add jelly or preserves…

Fougasse is a traditional french herb bread often shaped like leaves as shown. I baked these particular loaves in celebration of Samhain, thus the Pentacle inscribed on the round. In the background is a pile of my Honey, Buttermilk Cornbread…

Back in the 70’s I got tired of the arguments over whether Sicilian or Neapolitan were best, so I make this Pizza a little of both…

In the late fall, my gardener friends often bring me their ugly produce. I often use some of those to make one or more of these, in praise of late season, final harvest veggies. The misshapen, the runts, the frost bitten. They arise in celebration of our earthly bounty thus…

I use these to make sandwiches of all kinds. They are particularly good with a nice half pound medium rare burger on em…

I can’t seem to make enough of these. I put a plate of em out . . . and they’re gone…

The next two pics show three of my fave Danish shapes and filling combinations. These are perfect when accompanied by piping hot tea or coffee!

I also make other shapes: Stars, crescents, envelopes, etc. and fill them with lovely things both sweet and savory…

And speaking of hot drinks and what goes with em. I give you what has to be the king of Coffeecakes. An Estonian delight often baked for birthdays and other celebrations. It has to be baked long and slow to get that traditional deep brown color. It’s flavored with Cardamom and Cinnamon. I baked this particular loaf to celebrate the end of the clinton and bush dynasties…

The Telepathic Crickets™ on the ClapSotronics editorial board and I hope you enjoyed our various verses above, in large part they are written in Gluten…

Just Another Tuesday in trumptydumptystan…#2

I was hoping to begin reporting on trumpty dumpty’s policy and agenda plan, however as yet there doesn’t seem to be any plan whatsoever…

DAGNABIT! Even trumpty dumpty’s most knee jerk, drooling, stupidfuckastani supporters can’t figure out WTF he’ll do as prez:

draintheswamp

SONOFABUSH! Apparently first lady evita’s refusal to live in the white house and intention to stay in residence in the NYC tower of babble is gonna cost the tax payers but plenty. NYC mayor hizzonah de blah, blah, blah has just billed the federal taxpayers $35 million, as a down payment, for current costs to the city at the tower of babble. More bills will be a comin’ down the road!

FAGETABOWDIT! As to what a good guess concerning trumpty dumpty’s policies and agenda will be. Just take a look at his “A” team:

teamgekko

BUDABING! So what will ‘murica look like under a trumpty dumpty admin? Let’s look into ClapSo’s Amazing Future Foretelling Cracked Crystal Cube™ to see what we got a comin’:

oilrigfire

‘murica done blowed up…

Which happens to segue way perfectly into another exploding bahm:

Special ClapSorific™ BONUS QUIP: On the current chitown mayor possibly becoming dnc chair: Well, if it isn’t the ghost of xmas past. If anybody can put the last nail in the dem party, it’s bahm! He was the idiot behind the whole “blue dog” scheme which blowed up real good. The dems either move left or die…

DAGNABIT! If one more bernvicim calls me or anyone else a “reactionary” I’m gonna get out the Louisville Slugger! In any case, being a “reactionary”doesn’t make me a bad person, AMIRITE?

SONOFABUSH! The soKILLists are as full of shit as the crapitalists. Does anyone else remember THIS asshole:

stalin_color555

FAGETABOWDIT! The only difference between stalin and statusQUObama is statusQUObama uses drones to commit his political murders and war crimes while stalin preferred to use tanks and bombers!

Why in the world anyone would believe putting the gubmint employed corpoRATe assholes in charge of the economy would be any better then having the corpoRATe employed corpoRATe assholes in charge of the economy?

The problem is the corpoRATe assholes are in charge! anyhooooooooo, here’s a poem for the bernvictims and other red brigade hipsters:
